Hi,

I think I have a bent frame. The door hole is spreading by about 2" at the top. On the other side, the storage box is separating from the rest of the trailer. Fleetwood recommends that I have the dealer heat the frame, bend it back, and weld steel supports to the frame (sounds expensive). Anyone have any experience with this?

update- Fleetwood was nice enough to fax me a repair instruction for a welder to restore the camber to the frame, it turns out the frame actually has a tilt up that may come out after a lot of use/abuse... I'll keep you folks posted. Please let me know if any of you have any info...

thanks,

Dan

Sounds like it's time to trade that one in.
