In July 2014, DW & I purchased a 2008 Eagle Lite 30.5 RLS. Two weeks ago I noticed a bubble on the roadside rear of the trailer by the small window behind the slideout. On the inside, the window frame was pulling away from the wall by as much as 3/4". I could see the insulation in the wall. One of the screws holding the window frame had popped out. Took photos today, gap had closed up to maybe 1/4". Called the dealer we dealt with and e-mailed photos to try to find a solution. Waiting to hear if the dealer can repair. Don't think it was water intrusion as I cannot find any signs of water, eg. soft spots, stains, etc.. Pushing on both sides of the wall, there is no give, the wall feels solid as can be.

24 hours in a day, 24 beers in a case. Coincidence? I think not.

One of the first thing I did after the walkthru and bringing the trailer home was to go over every seam and check all caulked seams and joints. Saw no evidence of peeling/cracking.

We had a 2009 rockwood that delaminated after one year. Our current 2011 Jayco has been great.

Laminated panels are relying on a chemical bond only (ie glue). Metal siding has a mechanical bond, ie screws. i've seen too many delamination failures which can be difficult to repair. I have seen 30 year old metal rigs that still looked great.. Hard to glue two dissimilar materials, in all sorts of weather conditions, with added stress from movement and not have issues. Fiberglas and metal don't move at the same rates, 140+ temps in the desert and -20 in the winter, I think your asking for nothing but issues..

If this was a nation wide poll, I believe you would see a completely opposite poll that what you see here.

How many agree?

Go to your nearest parking storage area near you. Take a walk n see the older trailers with "Good Maintenance ", no delamination of walls. Dont go by what you see at the parks more likely those people have no Maintenance done on there ships.

Dont agree guys....
