Is this delamination?

The bathroom on my MiniLite 2104 is at the rear of the trailer. When cleaning after returning home from last trip I noticed that the rear wall is separating from the fixtures. I did not notice this when we were loading up prior to the trip. The gap is close to 1/2 inch at the bathtub. The last trip was uneventful - - no huge potholes, no running over any curbs, etc..

Is this delamination going on? If so, what's involved in fixing it? As you can see by the photo's, I have nothing attached to the exterior of the rear wall. The only mod to this area is the drawer I added under the counter. We have never used the tub or shower so it cannot be water damage. When you run your hand across the exterior rear wall you can feel a slight bulge on either side of the center line of the trailer. I am guessing their may be a stud there.

I have some photos in an album I created here:
Forest River Forums - gastan's Album: Delamination?

Any ideas?

How old is your TT? I wouldn't call that delamination but rather, poorly braced side walls and they are flexing. You might have your dealer take a look at it to see what the remedy my might be. You may think you were on smooth surfaces but you would be amazed at how much movement there is to the TT going down the highway. Check the sealing of the roof and see if there are any gaps for water to get under. How long have you owned this?

TT is 3 years old. We purchased it new in August 2012. Problem in along the rear wall but I suppose poor bracing in side walls could contribute. ???

I didn't notice any gaps / holes on the roof the last time I washed it but will check again.

Thanks for responding.
