The top portion of the nose cap has caved in. On the highway it looks strange, all pushed in. Never hit anything, just 3 trips under our belt. Brought back to dealer to see if they can do anything with it.

Big bird strike from a Seagull or Crow?

Weak fiberglass is likely as is not enough support.
I do not recall another thread about this but it would be easy to miss here.

It was a topic last year and seemed to be most prevalent due to the brown-colored caps in the south.

8289 front cap dents?

FR was repairing them by opening the seam between the roof and the cap and inserting foam sheets to support the soft, warm plastic.

I had my Cap checked at Goshen. The '14 model year was a different material, mine is a '13 and is fine. '15 are fine.
