Ceiling bubbles… what's going on?

I recently discovered that I am getting ceiling bubbles on the celling seams in my '97 Coachmen class c. I was initially concerned that they may have been an indication of a leak, but they all seem dry and the wood underneath feels solid. Has anybody seen this before? It seems to be happening right where the seams meet the cabinets or side walls. I am perplexed. Here are a couple of photos to show what I am talking about…

Mods, I posted here thinking that this might be a broad questions that could apply to MHs, TTs, etc. Please move if I should have posted in one of the more specific tech/problem forums. Thanks.

Do you store it in hot conditions with no air circulation? It looks like heat damage that occurs in FL when vehicles are stored in the heat with no air circulation. I store with a dehumidifier with a fan running 24/7 for that reason.

I store it in an outdoor storage lot in the Philadelphia suburbs. Been warm here lately but not Florida hot. It looks almost like the glue is letting loose. All four areas pictured appeared almost simultaneously over the last week.

Not sure if it's coincidental, but we took the RV on our longest trip to date the weekend before I noticed this. ~2 hours each way. Weather was mild but lots of twisty bumpy back roads. Think this could be the result of flex on an older coach?

Incidentally, took these picture tonight immediately after an intense thunderstorm with heavy rains has just rolled through. Couldn't find any trace of water in the bubbles.
