I recently checked on my travel trailer which has been sitting in storage several months and I noticed the upper front end has warped. it looks like bubbles (under the skin). is this due to the elements? I guess its to late to invest in a cover. it does get windy and hot where its stored. anyone have any opinions as to how this damage may be occurring? trailer is 09 passport ultralight.

Phew, this is very good news. We have learned to DOCUMENT everything, i.e. day you went in, who you spoke to, written statements from them regarding the problem and cost of repair, etc. Some extended warranty companies go to great lenghts NOT to pay anything so now we begin assuming they'll wind up in small claims court with us if they are unAmerican and don't do the right thing. Also, never begin work until a written authorization is received... many won't pay otherwise. Hopefully, your claim will be honored by an honest company.

Thanks for your comment. We did get the extended warranty, so hopefully they don't give me the run around when I take it back to the dealer. I'll be calling them up tomorrow to set up an appointment.

Ruben, is it just the skin graphics or underneath any applied graphics too? Sounds like delamination if it's not just the graphics. I would IMMEDIATELY call and get it back to the dealer as a warranty issue. Fingers crossed that you have a 5 year warranty on the frame and skin... many do. And, don't let them hold your off until the warranty is expired. If just out from warranty ask your dealer to submit a good faith claim anyway. sometimes they'll make good on repairs "slighly" past warranty. If not, ask the techs where your bought it about how they restore this newer trailer type... I'm sure they've seen it before. Let us know. pat
