I just bought a ‘07 Antigua XLT 285SSO from Campig World this pst weekend. It was a very long process, they messed up paperwork on VIN# the first day, on pick up day they didn’t even dump the tanks during the inspection before we came to pick up. We had to then come back on a Sunday to get it. So, here it Wednesday and we’ve had rain and my husband sends me pics of the front with bubbles. I never noticed it for the three days that we were at camping world and feel like I would’ve. My dad said he did. They’re close to a previous known spot where the seal weakened around the front corner exterior light that was fixed back when it happened (1st owner). CW supposedly resealed it for me to be safe. How is this happening if it was resealed around all the edges? Could it be old? I cannot push the bubbles in. I have pics at the dealer and pics now and wondering if maybe the lighting at the time just wasn’t to where I could tell (it was very bright out). I’m freaking out now. I spoke with the manager today and of course got the “you bought a prescription-owned tt which those are sold as is” spill. He then said he’d be glad to get his team to check it out if I brought it back to them which is an hour drive one way for me. Should I take it? I feel like they’re just gonna say ueahbtou have a bubble but we will be glad to fix it for you for $$$. HELP!
Oh and also while checking it out today when I got home my husband said it didn’t look as bad this afternoon. I also looked on roof and there were small bubbles here and there. Is this normal?!

Small bubbles on the roof are not unusual. Just keep an eye on them so they don't become large.

I would go over every inch of it and recall etc. Look at things like the clearance lights they will fill with water and the water will run into the wall cavity through the hole where the wire goes in.

You can seal the light covers with silicone and also drill holes in the bottom of the lens so any water can run out so it doesn't go into the wall. Also be sure that the lights are sealed against the wall.

So now I’m wondering if CW isn’t the place to go then who should I go to for maintenance and repairs. I’m in Alabama.

I do everything myself but people on here often recommend mobile techs. Of course that doesn't mean that they are all good but they do need to take care of their customers or they won't have any work.

I have owned my own small business and moonlighted long ago. When you do a good job, word of mouth will get you more work than you can handle. You need to weed through people and find your guy or gal then be fair to them and they'll take care of you.

HERE is just one example. As I mentioned above, you need to judge and weed them out like any other service.

It sounds like very inexperienced RVers. The unit was purchased 'as is', therefore Camping World would not be obligated to make repairs for free. They should have had someone more experienced do an inspection, the Dad noticed the bubbles before but didn't know or say what they were.
" “you bought a prescription-owned tt which those are sold as is” spill." IF it is delamination and if very serious, possibly more money to repair than the RV is worth, Maybe Camping World would be gracious enough to take the unit back and cancel the deal.
