Is it normal to see wall framing showing through on outside walls?

We are looking at high end Class A diesel pushers and found a 2009 Monaco Signature we like. Question I have is the steel wall supports push out the fiberglass wall a bit. It isn't really obvious but the black paint seems to show it more.

Those of you with Monaco coaches do you see this same thing in the back passenger side?

Our '05 American Eagle is not perfectly flat on the sides either, guess it is just different and wanted outside opinions.

Entirely normal. Both our Newmars and now the CC do the same.

Thanks, was just concerned because I too have the 650 HP Engine. With that much torque I was concerned about chassis issues.

Anyone have any issues with 2009 Monaco Signatures?

You probably should not be able to feel the frames but with metal framework it will tend to cause moisture to show the pattern of it or in could also show in some light conditions. The reason is that metal frames transmit heat through the walls and that temperature difference can cause a visible difference.
