Purchased May 2012. I always check my roof before and after every trip. I had the skylight checked and replaced in January 2013 per a letter from Forest River about possible defects. At that time the dealer inspected the roof and found no problem. I kept it in covered storage until May when I took a 7 day trip. Didn't notice any problems at that time. In late June took a short trip and when inspecting the roof on an especially windy day, noticed the roof was loose and rippling in the wind. First called Forest River in July and then took to dealer a few weeks later where it sat for weeks. They said it needed replacement. So far have had two dealers say it needed to be replaced. I also called Alpha systems, maker of roof material and they said it should be glued down and not be loose. They think it is a glue issue. I know that gas can build from glue and cause bubbles, but this seems to be excessive. Also, the door side is not nearly as bad.
