2013 Sport 22 Door Seal/Gasket

Just noticed on my new Sport 22 that the main door has a few millimeters of "play" in it when it is closed/locked. Meaning even with the main door bolt engaged I can push the door in a few millimeters with hand pressure. Without hand pressure it returns that same few millimeters, main door bolt still engaged. Wondering if I should bring this up as a warranty issue or is that normal for Airstreams or this model.

Hi, can you see light through the closed door? If not, I would leave it. Go and push on any of your car/truck doors, they will push in too.

You can check out the gasket if you close the door on a "dollar bill".

You can slowly pull on the dollar, and see if there is any resistance.

Try moving the dollar vertically as well.
