Dents above A frame

Hey everyone! We have been traveling in our 2021 FC Bunk for about 6 months and loving it. I noticed recently there are some creases/dents above the A frame on the front of the trailer, by the large storage compartment opening. Is this something I should be concerned about? Warranty issue?

Yes, please call Airstream. That is likely frame separation. AS knows that it's a problem, especially in longer trailers with front storage compartments.

Thank you for the replies. I'll give Airstream a call and see what they say. Hopefully repair can be done at local dealer and not have to go up to JC.

I am so glad to see you're still under warranty. Given the seriousness of your problem, I recommend you let Jackson Center fix it, where they build these trailers. They will do it right.

We had the same thing show up in our 2019 FB27 - Airstream of Inland Empire forwarded the pictures (just like yours) that we took to Jackson Center and they approved the repair from that - no questions asked.

Airstream IE did the repair - and you'd never know it was ever damaged!
