Concern on a new Sabre 34tbok-6

I am looking at purchasing a new Sabre 34tbok-6. While I was up on the roof looking at it I noticed a few air bubbles in the roofing material. there were about 6 or so dime sized bubbles and on one edge where it raps around to the side there was a 2 foot section that was not adhered down to the corner. Is this something I should be concerned about? Will these bubbles become larger in the future and result in failure of the roof? Also the front of the fifth wheel where the pin box mounts all the way down to the underbelly of the camper the fiberglass felt like it was not adhered to anything at all, kinda like a major case of delamination. However he had several different Sabre models next to it and they were all the same in that area. Thank you for any advise and replies to my concerns.

Matt

I have a 2012 Sabre 31 RETS and the roof looks just about what you have described. I was told not to worry about it. I will say my last two 5th., wheels Crossroads & Dutchmen, the roofs looked much smoother.

Dear Customer
The material under the king pin is not fiberglass. That is why it looks different. This material is better suited for this area where rocks and road material impact the surface.
