While I agree it can and does happen in boats - having spent my whole life around them I honestly don't think I would use the phrase "quite often". It would seem to me its more common to see it happen on a boat that has taken a known hard hit up against an immovable object &/or has a poorly done repair.
Having said that I am aware of one family members boat which came from a rather pricy well respected boat builder that had to be hauled back to the factory for a redo after its first year on the water, due to an issue of delaminating in the transom area - knowing the owner there will always be a question mark though as to whether it was a factory build issue or if their choose of engines used and adverse weather conditions the boat was operated in or if there had been contact with a dead head (sunken log) while running in bad weather. LOL but my scepticism as to cause is mostly due to the owner having a historical rep for being a little hard on boats & given the outstanding rep of the boat builder they may have pushed things just a tab.
Also growing up in Bigfoot
I have known lots of owners of their products (still do) including family members and I can't recall having heard anyone mention they had a problem on either a truck camper or a trailer with delamination - at least not on the ones that were considered to be actual moulded fiberglass. Bigfoot
did stray from its historical roots of building smaller moulded fiberglass trailers and started making some larger trailers, that to me at least, did not actually fit that description. The later was the big reason behind them having closed their doors for a time. Got caught out in the economic down turn with to many big trailers and no market for them.
Your profile does not indicate what year of Bigfoot
you own. Updating it might help people give you better answers to what ever questions you may have in regards to its construction and features.
Do you have any photos of the outside repair job?
Looking at the photos of the inside work although lacking in addressing the window issue/leak the actual fiberglass repair *may* not have even done by a DIY type especially if you didnt notice any repair on the outside of it. Fixing gelcoat to the point you don't notice a major repair is something your average DIY would have a hard time achieving.
Do you know the full providence of the trailer?
