Vinyl lifting

We recently purchased a 2014 Gulfstream Gulfbreeze 25BHS. We brought it home from the dealer aprox 90 mins away and had no issues. We did a local campout a few weeks ago and no issues. This past weekend we camped and travelled about 90 minutes away. When I parked it my wife went inside and noticed that the vinyl floor had an air pocket under it that was quite noticeable in the main area extending aprox 4 feet by 2-3 feet. Toward the bathroom door it was fine and by the entry door and front bedroom area it was also fine. I put the slide out and after about 30 mins it had settled and you couldn't tell there was an issue. I was under the impression that all floors were sealed down. This is our first trailer with a slide and I'm just wondering if this is normal (although I don't feel it is). If you envision putting a bed sheet on a bed you get that air pocket effect. That's what this was like.

I've never seen this before. Certainly not normal. Maybe related to temperature change? I can't imagine the floor inflated from the wind of driving down the road.
If it happens again, I might poke it with a pin to see if it's under pressure or more of a heat expansion thing.
Otherwise, document it with the dealer (fotos via email) and have them check it next time it there.

vinyl floors

my experience with vinyl floors they are glued at the edges only, the

whole piece is not glued. I would call the dealer soon. Do not attempt

ant repairs on your own.
