New Arctic Wolf 285dlr

Hi I am a newbie to this site. I am trying to find my way around. Just purchased our Arctic Wolf. We picked it up on a Thursday and went camping the next day. Spent 10 days at the campground. Everything went great.
Hate the mattress. I should have kept my 10 inch memory foam from the the Rpod. About to order a new one now. I did not get on the top of the trailer at the dealers. But now that we are home and I can see the top from our upstairs window I am a little concerned. Is it normal to see the lines across the top where it is put together. Am I being paranoid....the rpod was one continuous piece of material. Thanks

Welcome to the forum from MN. Not sure about the roof, we just bought our TT last Oct and I haven't been on the roof yet. I will in a couple months, i need to install a fan vent cover I bought this winter.
Enjoy the camping!

Welcome to the forums and congrats on the new RV! Not sure about the roof concern. You might try posting a couple of pictures.
Great choice for "Living within my means" and camping for one...

I don't remember seeing those on mine... But I can't see it right now because it's under 6" of slowly melting snow 😥

welcome to the forum its a great place to get your questions answered. Little hard to tell from the pic but given it is a new rig the ridges do not look correct to me I would take it back and have them fix it.
