I'm finding that it's quite common actually. That front area gets hit with different wind patterns depending on the tow vehicle. I noticed that it doesn't do it when I tow with my Jeep but it does it when I tow with my pickup.
Many people mistakenly assume that wind is getting under the siding somehow. But the fact is the wind pattern creates a low pressure area on that front quadrant and "lifts" the siding from the outside. Often it's too much force for the ridiculous staples that are used and they pull out of the studs. The more it happens, the easier it becomes for the staples to slide in and out of the studs.
That's why I'm going to use one or two 1.5" pan head screws at the thicker part of the seam to screw the siding down to a stud. I don't think it will be that noticeable and it will certainly be easier than pulling the trim and siding to get to the area where they are stapled to the studs.
