How does this installation look??

New Apex tt I got in October. I didnt really notice this until a few weeks ago and was wondering if I should be concerned or not. They are not really installed flush all around but looks like a foam or something behind it. Should I be concerned??

About average...

I would prefer for the frame to fit closer than that if it were mine. They use a foam gasket between the frame and the camper side. I am a belt and suspenders guy, so I will be adding a bead of sealant along the top and down the sides, I prefer to leave the bottom open, that way any moisture that gets in there has somewhere to drain out.

Is that all? I have seen similar quality on $250K RV's... C'est la vie.

Unfortunately words like quality and craftsmanship have very little meaning today. I deal with in on a daily basis, and it has been going on forever. Read and interesting article about the sorry labor that only wanted a paycheck and to spend all weekends drinking then not coming in to work on Mondays, and not caring about the quality of work. It was in a letter written by a furniture manufacturer owner back around 1800
