Is it normal to see light at the corners of the roof?

We just got back from a great week of camping in the Black Hills, and while out I noticed that you can see a bit of light on each side of the top of the roof. Is that normal?

I can also see light around the door, and it looks like the top part of the door seal doesn't quite mesh with the frame. I'm not sure if that's normal either!

I have a small amount of light at the top 2 corners. Iíd say itís just the nature of the aframe. I have been in some very heavy rains with no leaks, not even when washing it except for maybe a few drops. My door though seals up pretty good.

We get the light in the corners too. Our solution: we shove a couple pieces of foam in each corner after we raise the walls. "Problem" solved.
...and...we're camping!!

We also have "some light" in the corners. We found out the hard way in Alaska last summer. The mosquitos invaded and we had to hide under the sheets that night. Paper towels stuffed in the cracks solved the mosquito invasion. Never had water enter.

The small gaps on mine let the bugs in too. I've Learned not to leave the inside lights on at night when I'm out ot the camper. No water infiltration.

I used adhesive backed foam and placed it where needed. Problem with bugs solved.
