New camper, small issues but one Major ?

The underbody seal against the frame has several areas where it is not only loose, but bowed and open as well (mice friendly?). I compared mine to a close by Sierra and theirs is tightly sealed, with no bowing, and maybe even glued ??

You posted in the TT/5th Wheel section's Sierra sub-forum.
Your profile shows a park model trailer.

Not aware of any Sierra park models.

Destination trailer is newer and more exciting way of saying Park model.

A park model looks more like a small house. Destination trailers look more like large TT.
To the seasonal camper there is a difference.

Destination trailers have to have holding tanks and can be placed in most rv parks

Yes, those gaps happen. Use caulk for the smaller gaps and expanding foam for the larger gaps. Easy fix.

I have seen some RV manufacturers' park models and other destination models and they looked the same.
And I've not seen any manufacturers that have both destination models and park models.

But I admit I must be incorrect.
My apologies for confusing the discussion.

The part trailers are just small single wide manufactured homes. Down here in the Rio Grande Valley most parks allow the manufactured homes, but I have not really seen that many destination trailers. Manufactured homes are not made by the TT industries and don't have holding tanks.
