2015 Rpod 179.  Nearly all the vertical seams are showing on the camper. I don't remember them being that noticeable before this year.  I tried taking pictures but, can't get good ones.
We have not used the RPod for quite some time so I just don't remember.  


Is it normal for them to show? Thanks...

I doubt normal, would really help with a pic. Where are they separating?

Unless it is severe it is not abnormal at all.  It's called seam print.  Cosmetic is all.  I've only seen 1 or 2 R-Pods ever with it so bad that it was warranty viable.

Thanks, I have to admit I'm not sure what that is. But if you say so, I'm following.

My seams always showed a bit of a bump, nothing separated.   
If you want something done right, do it yourself.

We see seams when there is a big temperature change and there is high humidity. Not seams actually, but you can "see" where the aluminum studs are.  I'm presuming this is on the outside, and not the inside? A little clarification would be helpful.
