Just wondering, especially for those of you who have units less than 15 years old, do you have spider cracking already?
At what trailer age should we expect spider cracks begin? Or maybe we should not be expecting this to happen?

They're called stress cracks. They can happen on a new trailer. They're typically only in the gelcoat, not the fiberglass. Captain Tolley's Creeping Crack Cure has been used successfully by boat owners for years to fill those in. I recommend it highly!
