Mine just bowed over the winter and broke one of the latches, I actually just spoke with my dealer this morning.


He said get him some pictures and they will get the door replaced.

Hope that helps,

I think we need to put some caulking along the top of the door as I think that is where the water is getting in causing the door to bow, But that is just a guess on my part.

I stored mine in doors for the winter. With that being said there may have been water left in around it. It was in cold storage

Maybe the water is getting in on the outside of the door, along the metal trim.

Picked up our new 2017 Wildwood Travel Trailer

We picked up our new 2017 Travel Trailer recently from Ohio, drove it back to Colorado. Our walk through went very well, did take most of a full day, we asked our company rep to lub everything really well as we had a long road trip ahead and he did just that, found minor things to be done and he took care of them quickly. We used an online check list to check everything, it is about 7 pages long. We video taped the walk through explanations and things to be done as we went along. Got under the trailer and on top, looked at screws and bolts and all hinges as we were suggested to do. Tried all electrical sockets with a night light, used a flashlight under and around and through awnings, slides and all junctures to fittings for slight holes or spaces as we had read to do, tried every door, we opened, we closed, we repeated, checked for a good solid feel to them, checked walls for any warping using leveler gauge, used leveler on services and windows and sinks and all things level, checked everything that opened, closed, turned on and was to move or not move. Minor repairs needed, took several hours to finish up or redo, but nothing mind boggling. Added the stabilizer, the extra jacks, the vents on top and a few other things to take care of our new baby - After so many stories of so many MAJOR things wrong when picking up a new unit we were a bit concerned, so very very thoroughly checked everything out, knock on wood, it's minor details to do along the way and fun upgrade MODS ahead only. We traveled to dealership next t where they are built also and found it to be a very good experience. **With leveler, we found our kitchen counter has a slight but noticeable warp to it, they ordered us a new one and when it arrives, will be replaced, we were so very happy and pleased with the minor things found and fixed quickly without hassles. And as any homeowner knows, there are things to do on any thing you purchase. I will make a side note here - on one online site it was recommended to have a good tip for your company representative doing the walk through, and right after when list is handed to them to complete your repairs, and we did and I do believe that full day of extra work on our behalf was good for all of us. We first stayed a few nights in Ohio, close to dealership to check everything out, even baked in the stove - learned everything burns unless you use a pizza stone I heard - still figuring that out, used range top and elec. frying pan mostly. We had heard the tubs with glass doors tend to leak, many are having that problem and I don't think that is perfected yet, we choose curtain and ours did great. So after staying and trying out every detail - twice and three times - we traveled towards Colorado - staying three more nights along the way. We are happy happy campers for sure and LOVE OUR WILDWOOD!!! Like any house walkthrough - be very very diligent in inspecting everything - same applies and be prepared for a few things to do to get it up to snuff!!

Sounds like you did everything correctly. You should be good to go for plenty of enjoyment

I have the outside kitchen door bow as well. I bought a new 2015 model and have a couple other small issue that I plan to call warranty on.

Looks like a few of us are suffering from the same thing. So let's figure out the cause so we can prevent the door from warping in the future

My vibe 308bhs outside kitchen door is bowed along with the bathroom doors (both inside door and exterior door).

Something has been tweaked somehow.


If you guys come up with a solution or more info concerning the warranty claim, please post it up.

Has anyone else noticed the same problem?? or rather do your rigs have some kind of support??
Just a follow up to this discussion from last year...I had a closer look at my fender last night as I was de-winterizing and I noticed that I have a metal support bracket there, but they missed the bracket with the screw (LOL) so I backed the screw out and drilled it into the metal brace..it seems alot more sturdier now, than before, but I imagine will still flop a little bit in the wind.

I had to reposition my bracket as well. The bracket had come off the screw, so I put it back on and seems to work decent enough.
