Roof appears to be delaminating

Well starting to do odds and ends to get our 2007 Cayman ready for the season, it sat last year and we didn't use at all, checking the roof today I noticed 2 or 3 bulges that have popped up (Picture attached of worst one), you all have any thoughts? Easily pushes down, no sign of and water leaking inside, no smells, etc.

Should I get this looked at and repaired asap or is something that can wait until the fall?

Obviously that is not normal. It also will not get better with time. I would at least try to determine why it is delaminating before the damage gets severe.
Happy Camping, Safe travels and may our paths cross someday!

I canít see you image but on my 2002 American Eagle I can feel where the roof has lifted from the sub structure in areas. It is solid underneath. I called the OEM roof manufacturer a few years ago and they told me that it is not uncommon. They said sometimes that the coach builder does not lay enough adhesive down and the fiberglass roof may lift up in areas.

As smooth as the surrounding areas are I would not worry about it. Only way I see to fix is replace the entire fiberglass roof. Good Luck with not having any leaks after that.

Thanks for the feedback all, I have an email into a couple of repair shops close by, on these roofs is it like normal fibreglass they could just cut out the bubbled area then lay in new fibreglass to patch?

Going in tomorrow for annual oil changes for motor and generator. also to check out the dash air as that has quit now too! I guess at the end of the day the repairs are cheaper than buying a new one!
