cracks in Snoozy fiberglass???

I recently read on this website that someone had to sand and repair a crack in their Lil Snoozy fiberglass. It was a rather new trailer too..........of course all Snoozys are rather new. We are looking at Snoozy and plan a trip to the plant in the near future. Wondering if anyone else has had that issue. Would the mfgr. have any responsibility in that?
Thanks for the input.

I don't remember that myself, but were the cracks in the fiberglass, or just in the finish?

If I recall it was a bad spot about the size of a quarter in the gelcoat on the roof. Cosmetic, not structural.

Gelcoat is the "paint" on a fiberglass part.

The thread here
Lil'Snoozy owners : please contact me

Ruth has some feedback and other owner info is in the 7 page thread.
Lil'Snoozy owners : please contact me

and here

Lil'Snoozy owners : please contact me

here are two owners trying to get warranty work from the business

RV.Net Open Roads Forum: Anyone Else Out There Own A LIL Snoozy?

Other threads are around about owners adding insulation to combat condensation. Seems odd to me since they can cost $24500.00 to then have to go to this trouble .

There is a one year warranty on the Snoozy.
You may be thinking of mine. I looked but
couldn't find the posts. Fiberglass problems
for the most part are minor. Easily fixed over
stick problems.

The factory will repair problems within warranty
period but the cost of getting to the factory is
more than any repairs would cost for me. It's
a thousand miles one way for me.
