kharless, if it's niether one of these then you need to check with your dealer. Regardless, it still should be covered under the original warranty since you've had the trailer less than a year.
I didnt see the Late Last year part until I re-read the first post - I agree it should be covered under warranty since it hasnt been a year yet - good luck and let us know how you faired out on getting it resolved

They said fiberglass but I would agree it feels like some sort of textured vinyl or plastic. I will swing by the dealer this week and see what they say and report back. Thanks for all the great advice. Hopefully it's nothing. I still would love to put a cargo rack up there. My truck is full since their is minimal storage in the trailer. Think I should have gotten a High Side!

I guess I opened my mouth before I opened my eyes. I'm just now realizing that you have a pop up. I believe the tops are fiberglass, so maybe an easy repair. Depending on how bad it is, they may replace the top.
I know there are bike racks made for pop ups, so check with your dealer about a cargo rack. Of course you'll need to watch the GVWR of the trailer.

Good luck and I apologize for giving you bad info.

your info wasnt too far off though other then maybe the warranty length - I didnt put two and two together either on a pop up also

to the OP - most likely it is a rubberized paint with the non slip in it painted over the fiberglass shell - I would still take it in for warranty work so it is documented provided you are the original purchaser - Forest River only gives warranty to the original purchaser and not the 2nd one and so on like a car manufacture does.
and like stated above - I would say it probably is an easy fix

On my previous pop-up trailer I put a roof rack on my trailer, I do believe that it would probably void the warranty as I had to drill through the roof, but honestly I didn't even think of it at the time. The roof was made of the same materials as seen in your pictures. The roof is a fiberglass overlay laminated to what appears to be a 1/4 in sheet of plywood, on the interior there appears to be another sheet of plywood, the two sandwich the framework, and are filled with a hard foam insulation (seems like the expanding foam squirted between the layers then hardens)

The rack system I used was Thule, included the roof rails accessories that can be installed on Leer truck tops, then using accessories I was able to haul three kayaks on the top, or 6 bikes, or a combo of both.

I don't have close up pictures, but this is what it looked like loaded. It worked very well, all the screws installed where sealed with silicone caulk as was the bottom of the rails as I installed them.

I am not saying this is/was correct and appropriate, but I can say I did not have ANY adverse problems, and it worked very well for me. Loading was simple due to the height of the trailer, the weight seemed very well distributed using the Thule system. Just of note, it is difficult to find the roof rails on Thule's site because of the vehicle fit program they use. I bought the whole thing from rackwarehouse.com. Just look through all the Thule accessories or search for rails.
