What's killing me about it is the camper just came from the factory last Friday and I bought it Thursday. And picked it up yesterday I couldn't see it that well because it was dark outbon the walk through because of the weather is going back Monday morning

JMO but the pattern is strange. Hopefully it's not damage but quality control on the coating for the ceiling material. Maybe they changed vinyl rolls and didn't allow for change time/splicing. I dunno. Just looks odd to me.

I didn't get all of it in the picture that's what I'm hoping for to. It's too much money to spend I look like that though

If that is vinyl covering, I have a few spots in my Coachman that look similar and appears to be excess covering adhesive that was not properly cleaned up. The spots are not always visible, it depends on the light and angle of viewing. Just another opinion.

Keep us posted. Hoping it's just a qc issue that can easily be fixed and not water damage.

Got to excited been waiting awhile on it and overlooked these little things at the dealer luckily they are pretty close and its not camping season.

When we were taking delivery of our new 2500TS, we noticed marks on the ceiling that appeared to be water intrusion. Skipped heart beats and near panic mode. The sales rep assured us it was not, got a vinyl cleaner and personally cleaned it off with a rag while we watched. It was that it had not been thoroughly detailed. I would agree with Flybob. It has not reappeared so apparently, the sales rep.(and Flybob) are correct.

Before you panic, see if it will clean up. Ours had been sitting on the lot for a year and the detailer missed it. Yours was a quick pass-through with the dealer and they may have done the minimal to make the delivery. Take a deep breath-Ahhhhhh!

We had a lot of brownish stains (looked like adhesive) on our SS ceiling that we just couldn't see unless there was enough light. I took some citrus cleaner to it and it cleaned up nicely. I tested the cleaner on the ceiling inside a cabinet first to make sure it wouldn't make things worse. Good luck, hope it cleans up for you.

Looks like water damage to me too but, it's strange it is not on the small strip or the other ceiling panel. Maybe that ceiling tile got wet before it was installed.

This happened to us with a brand new trailer. Take off the air vent cover and get a flashlight and a mirror and take a look to see from the top side. Looks exactly the same as what we had. The dealer found a leak in the roof, fixed it and then replaced the ceiling panel. Good luck, hope your dealer is as good as ours.

A tool like this one would tell you if it is moisture (water) presence

As my dealer said "It's warranty digression by the manufacturer - you may have to pay a deductible." when the rear window leaked and the inside wall decontaminated. They replaced the whole rear end (wall sent from factory). Write a certified letter and follow-up with an Email to the manufacturer listing your situation. Several posts have mentioned total replacement of their lemon.
