And actually for the record, I have seen something similar on a fiberglass camper. My old 78 Chinook had similar warping/wrinkling going on around the side windows. You could only see it in the right kind of lighting.

Re: fiberglass wrinkles.

Now I wonder if they were created by pulling it out of the mold before it was fully cured, it then warped and hardened in that shape. If it was me running the factory, I would finish it and sell it at some discounted price instead of throwing away the most expensive part of the camper.

Too bad I don't have photos of it from the 90's!

I think Tom nailed it on the roof sag issue. There have been at least a few threads in the past that have discussed this issue with pre mid 90's Bigfoots. It was a support issue that was fixed in later models but no one seems to know exactly which model year they made the changes.

If you want more info use that google search function for bigfoot roof sag. Seems like it is mostly a cosmetic thing but it's been well documented.

Hope not, but also doubt it. I think if enough water entered to warp fiberglass, I'd have stains inside on the ceiling, which I don't. But I took that photo just a few weeks after buying the camper, so I have no way of knowing.

The mystery continues...
