Front Window Shield Frame

I have a new 2019 Globetrotter. I was cleaning the front after our maiden voyage. I noticed the two front end (side) plexiglass rock guards that are hinge mounted at the front do not fit against the Airstream curves and window. Does anyone else have this issue or do I have a bent rock guard frame on my trailer?

The guard has a gasket around the inside of the frame implying it should fit against the body of the Airstrem for some sort of seal. But the frame has large gaps at the top side portions of the frame.

Rock guard.. it is untended to flex. The “gasket” is the next level of shock absorption if necessary. Also if wind pressures exceed then the gasket provides additional resistance. So, of it doesn’t touch I would not worry. Easier to hose out and keep gasket clean so it doesn’t scratch against frame if gritty
