2016 Western Country (Crossroads Reserve)

I have a 2016 Western Country 5th wheel, bought new. In washing it together it ready to put away for the winter I noticed spider cracking on the whole rear cap of the unit. When looking at the rear of the trailer you can see all the trailer structural members and this is where the cracking is happening, right over the members. There is also cracking that is running between those supports.

Has anyone else experienced this? I am very disappointed in this and fairly confident this should not be happening. Gel coat

How cold do the winters get in your part of the country?

Thank you for your reply Lloyd.

The winters are definitely cold here. Last year we had some Temps down below minus 40C, sorry I don't know the Fahrenheit. One thing is though, the trailer does not move at all in the winter.

If you follow up on it with your dealer or Cross Roads, I wouldn't be surprised if they blame it on the extreme cold.

It may have been the cold weather but more likely a manufacturing issue, perhaps combined with the cold. There are thousands upon thousands of rv's in this part of the country that hibernate outside throughout the winters so it's unlikely just the cold alone that has caused this.

Welcome @wagnerjeremyd. Glad you joined. This forum has some of the greatest people and there's no shortage of expertise. Doug

Thank you for your replay. I agree fully that there is a manufacture defect with the bracing or something behind the gel coat.
