Delamination right off the lot?

First-time RV owner of a new Stealth 1913. Reading a lot about delamination on the forums and hoping for some clarification.

My trailer's front cap is fiberglass, and it appears to be 'soft' all over - i.e. I can push it in a few inches before it feels like it hits anything solid behind it. This is true all over the cap, except near the edges. The trailer is brand new (mfgr date of Sept 2013).

I need to take it back to the dealer on Monday for some maintenance items - should I bring this up to them or consider it normal?

As always - thanks for those that take the time to read and answer questions from the 'new guys' on the forums - I've learned a tremendous amount here in the few weeks I've been on.

Don't believe you have a problem here, your glass cap is really a fiberglass sheet product over bat insulation and framing. It's not a molded glass cap like some units are. Nothing wrong, just a different approach to keep the front sanitary. Enjoy your coach!

On most trailers the front and rear walls are hung fiberglass and not vacuum bonded so they will have some movement to them.
