Grand Design Imagine 2600RB Sidewall Delaminating at 9 Months

We took possession of our new Imagine 2600RB on July 14, 2016 it has had some very serious structural issues that affect the interguity of the camper. We had water leak into the bedroom. Looking for possible causes we discovered a hole in the roof and rusting rivets around the emergency escape window. It was at a dealer for 8 out of the first 15 weeks of owning it. A new window was installed late last fall. On April 14, 2017 when we opened the camper, we discovered water had leaked in again. We are unable to get to this area when the slide is in, therefore could not check it during the winter months. Then we discovered the sidewall is delaminating under the emergency escape window at 9 months of owning it. We are taking it to a dealer for body work estimate on Monday. Today I spoke to a warranty manager at Grand Design he tells me it's easy to fix, just cut out the bad and repair the fiberglass. Every article I find on delamination says it's bad and don't even get involved with one that has signs of delamination even if it's free. I really don't think this is fair to me as a consumer, we purchased a new camper for $28,740, our investment is worthless with this happening. Any suggestions?
