Honeymoon is over - delamination

We purchased a basically new 2016 Windjammer 3006WK (previous owner had it about 6 weeks when found out they were having twins and needed something larger to go full time in). We've had it less than a month, and this weekend I found two spots near the front of the trailer (right behind the V) that are delaminating. And, of course, since we are not the original owner, we have no warranty. No idea what to do at this point, as we have a basically new trailer that is already coming apart. And it isn't a matter of not maintaining it, as it is still the current model year! Anyone had this issue? Any suggestions?

Maybe you should write Forest River?

Forest River should make a good business decision, waive the original owner requirement in this highly unusual case and correct this for you.

I really hope so. I saw that last weekend after a heavy rain and just promptly burst into tears. We traded in our little Jayco extendable for this trailer just to get more space, but now I'm so upset - we never had this type of quality issue with the Jayco. I had heard good things about Forest River quality - now I'm definitely scared that I screwed up by trading in the Jayco!

And now Forest River owns Jayco!

I heard that! I really hope they will help me out with this - surely this is not what they expect of their products!
