Front end flexing

Does anyone have a problem with their 2012 386x12 XLR frame flexing to the point that the trim wants to pop off and the fiberglass coating buckle's a little. I feel like the frame maybe failing but the RV dealership I use for repairs says it is normal. Any thoughts?

All frames flex. Keeping these rigs as light as possible so that SUVs and 1/2 trucks can pull them means less frame material and lighter framing material. Is the flexing taking place while going down the road or when you place the rig on the stabilizers?

My trailer has a slight "twist" to it. Been like that since day one. Hasn't caused any issues, but sure does look odd.
