Front Fiberglass Collapse/Dented

I own a 2007 Wildwood 312BHBS LA -Fiberglass body. I do not have the fiberglass front cap, just the fiberglass skin on the front of the trailer.

I noticed last week the top third of the fiberglass frontend collapses or is dented, and changes with the weather. Sort of like the twisting/warping you get with a cookie sheet in the oven. Seems like there is no solid support behind the fiberglass skin. No, I have not hit anything and the structure is not rotted.

Has anyone experienced this?

Thanks - Dave

I saw one recently delaminated in the top front section and it looked wrikled across the top

It most likely was put on a little crooked. On my utility trailer the front cap on it cracked and it was from one spot being pushed in a little farther than the rest which created stress in that one area and eventually cracked.
I cut out the bad area, screwed some flashing to the inside using small stove bolts, also put in a few pop rivets, then painted the whole thing with several coats of spray on bed liner.
So far it's holding up well.

Thanks for the feedback. On to the dealer for a fix I guess.
