2009 Flagstaff delamination issues

I've been wondering how many other 2009 Flagstaff / Rockwood (these 2 models are made on the same assembly line) owners have had MAJOR delamination issues with their TT or fivers? I took deliverey of my 2009 Flagstaff 831FKBSS in early april of 2009 and had delamination after 7 months. The entire back of this unit was replaced (taking 9 months to replace) and seemed OK for the next 6 months. After 1-1/2 years, I noticed 4 different areas of delamination and by this time, I no longer had warrenty coverage. The DW and I loved this layout but we finally got fed up (we also had a front window leak and were never able to completly track down where it was leaking from) and traded it in on a 2013 Palimino Columbus 320rs. I thought I saw a post 3-4 years ago about delamination but cant find it. Am I the only one who had this problem?

I seem to recall a rash of delamination complaints with Rockwood/Flagstaff campers when I first joined the forum in 2007. I believe that they cited glue issues casing the delamination problems.

Thank you Dave_Monica...I thought so also. I joined in early 2009 and remember seeing a post about de-lam. Its sad that we had to get rid of our Flagstaff as we really loved it but I did wonder how many other Flagstaff / Rockwood owners had to endure this issue. It's now a moot point as we have upgraded to the Columbus line and what a difference our 320rs has been!
