Front Cap seems to be pushed in..

Hi all,
I was just getting ready for a trip with my 8283WS and noticed that the front cap has indentations on the top ridge on both the right and left.

Could anyone verify if this is the true shape of the front cap on Rockwood Ultralite 5th wheels or do I have an issue?
Here are a few pictures and hope you can see the 2 locations at the top just before it changes to the roof.

I checked the front cap on ours...may have the same small indentations in the same area. Not as pronounced as appears your photos. Normal for Rockwood/Flagstaff front caps???

Thanks Dave for checking. I looked back in all my photos and they were there inthe dealers lot. I will keep watching .
I wonder how many others have the same indentations?

The real question is, what does it do when you push on those areas?

When I see ultra light, that usually means ultra thin.

No offense meant John, please take that as light hearted trailer humor.

Hopefully it is of no concern and isn't going to sag on you. Might still be worth it to contact your dealer or FR.

I have the same dents on my brand new Flagstaff CKSS. It is in the area where the cap is flat, the weakest part as far as stiffness goes. The important area, in the front, seems really strong with the shape of the cap. I don't consider it to be a problem, other than cosmetic.
I have seen some fivers going down the road with the cap pushed in a foot in the center, now that would bother me!
