Daylight through the door seal

We have now made it to Munising MI with our new 13 foot scamp and we noticed we can see daylight towards the left side near bottom of the door when latched. This would be the side with hinges. Is this normal or should there be a seal where no light can enter?
We were not sure if this was normal before we call Scamp?
Thanks in advance for your input which gas been invaluable.

Sure doesn't sound right to me
I would give scamp a call and maybe take a pic as well

Probably shouldn't be able to see daylight in a new trailer - but the insulation does compress and I found that I needed to add/replace insulation strips around the door occasionally.
