Rubber roof is not glued down ?

I noticed on my new Jayco Swift, the rubber roof is not glued down about 2” from the edge all the way around the outer edges. Is this normal ?

Doesn't sound right. I don't know how Jayco builds their rigs, but both my Sunnybrook and HitchHiker have the rubber roof bonded down all around the edges of the roof.

Can't visualize what you are describing--doesn't sound right. Picture?

Being a Jayco owner , and seeing the video of how they are made , it would seem their ONLY concern is turning them out as FAST as possible ... Quality of construction and materials appears to be of No concern ... to them ... Mine lasted just long enough to just get through the warranty period , then everything either failed, leaked , or fell apart ... Then Jayco uncaringly referred me to the dealer who wanted Huge amounts of money to fix the problems ... Writing letters , e-mails to the company produced the same results ... and if you’re critical in any way , they just Ignore you ...

Best get EVERYTHING sorted Before the warranty runs out !!! After that you’re on your own ...

Your right, I seen the video to. We had a Jayco popup that we bought new before we got the new Swift, and it had a lot of quality Issues, we had to take it back a number of times for warranty work.
