That looks like delamination, a sign of water intrusion/damage.

You need to get on this right away. It can only get worse!

SlingshotOntario, We brought the camper back to the dealer upon our return last month and the dealer then proceeded to replace the fwd exterior and interior panels supplied by Crossroads under warranty. After the repairs, we then left again the following week and experienced two rain events with good results. Absolutely no water intrusion in the cargo box area. We also had the dealer check the aft exterior panel as it too was beginning to show signs of buckling. The dealer said there was no water and was typical of minor buckling which is expected after use/travel. We will continue to monitor this area for moisture in the future. We are now experiencing torrential rain today so hopefully we'll have a better indication of any issues/problems. So at this point, we are satisfied with the repairs and disappointed in the length of time for resolution.

Bobjeeds, See my last posting above. This is the same problem we have been experiencing with our Slingshot. By the time we got Crossroads to accept responsibility for the issue (2 years and 4 shop visits), our forward panel looked like Mt. Rushmore, the buckling was so bad and the roof/forward panel joint had collapsed (looked like a tree had fallen on the unit). The roof joint was the source of our water leakage.

I have seen no signs of water intrusion. If water is coming in would it not find its way into forward storage compartment?

Bobjeeds, I would make the assumption that if water is leaking in from the roof/forward panel joint, in addition to the buckling you would see signs of water in the cargo area itself via wet/damp carpet or the carpet/wall trim pieces turning black or delaminated. This was the first indication we received. You might also check your wardrobe closet for signs of mold/delamination which eventually happened in our case and therefore needed to have the paneling replaced as well.

bobjeeds, we had exactly the same problem with our 2012 29BH. We bought it in 2011 - in the spring of 2012 I noticed warping/delamination pretty much identical to your pic. We had a hassle getting the warranty work done (we'd bought out of province as the local dealer didn't carry Slingshots) but eventually we did get the front cap replaced. The guy who did the work said that there's supposed to be a strip of sealant material *underneath* the seam between the front cap and the stone guard. That strip was missing, so moisture was making its way through all the screw holes. I never did see any visible moisture in the storage compartment, but clearly there was enough leakage to cause the delamination.

So far the replacement cap looks good.

The work was done by an independent here in MB who sometimes does overflow warranty work on behalf of the dealership. So effectively it was done through the dealership, just not by the dealership.
