Wall pulled out at bottom on older HR

I drove my '87 33' HR up to Alaska from South Dakota. Great experience, highly recommend it, it was unbelievable. On the way up (the last couple of hundred miles of the Yukon) I noticed the wall on the right side (under the window and in front of the door) had pulled out some at the bottom. It was fairly solid so I did not worry about it until I got parked at my destination.

About 3' of the wall has actually pulled lose at the bottom. It is out just past the floor. I think I can push it back in with a little help from a jack to just edge the wall back in over the floor and then screw it in place from the underside.

My question is whether anyone has had a similar problem and what they did to fix it.

Thanks for your experience and insight.

that seems to be a common place for A's to have trouble; one i checked out had the same issue. a temporary fix would be to find the steel tubes and screw some fish plates over them where they meet until you can open it up and get it welded up. once you've found the tube locations, there may be several methods available to secure them together for the return trip. have fun up there!
