Enclosed Under Belly Issue

Hello
The Grey Wolf 26RL we are considering at Camping Would, list that it has an enclosed under belly, something i strongly desire. Getting down on the ground to take a look,and, no enclosed underbell, although listed and charged for on the invoice.With the salesman agreeing it not,he continues to say that is is no problem because they can do it ( enclose the underbelly ) there with no problem and as good as it would have been from Forest River.
Is this possible ??? That they can do it as well as factory ???

Thanks All Jim

Can't speak to CW quality but is this a used unit? Gotta wonder what would happen to make someone remove the belly covering. Bad water damage? critters? Black tank disaster?

Perhaps it has an open bottom for Oregon seals to 'ride the rails' like in the old railroad hobo days.

Enclosed Under Belly Issue

Step AWAY from the RV, Jim … … Better yet, RUN FAST!
Is this really a wagon to which you want to hitch your horse?
Work with me here... ...

You've got a salesperson who deliberately side-stepped your deal-breaking issue – Only to fess-up AFTER you got down on hands & knees to put eyeballs on.

You've got said salesperson who works for a particular outfit which claims able to do restoration work as good as the factory.

You've got an enclosed underbelly that is
ALREADY charged on the invoice! ---They simply got caught pulling a fast one. Makes me / Makes you wonder what other truths they’re playing "Keep Away" with.

Finally (as previously mentioned), You've got a covering that is missing now. And for whatever the reason(s), None of which will bode well with your wallet AFTER the warranty expires!

Do tell us that “there would have been” a written warranty.
Are you running yet???

Enclosed can hide a lot of poor craftsmanship. Take a closer look.......

One of the main benefits of the enclosed underbelly is that one of the heat ducts blows warm air into the space. The theory is this will keep the tanks and lines from freezing and help maintain temps in the trailer. So, if they are enclosing it after the fact, is the current duct work just blowing onto the ground? Or, are they modify/cutting the existing duct work to make vent into the newly enclosed underbelly space?

I'm a trifle confused. The pull behinds I have been under had the floor built by laying down sheet goods then building the floor including tanks on top of that and then putting down the floor. Nothing was exposed but the drains. That means things like support struts are in the open but all the worrisome parts are not. Is that your concern or are the tanks exposed?

Tanks are exposed. There are other models there that have enclosed insulated tanks, but the under belly is still open ( frame members exposed )

That's for the seals to "ride the rails" silly.
