Being that it's a ToyHauler, I wouldn't think that it would have "Faux" axles and that the unit was not meant to move.

Thanks for the replies, and as I said. In a week, if she's willing to share details, I'll forward them on. This forum is so great about getting advice, and sharing experiences.
Thanks again...oh and a bad cold has kept me from jumping back on to answer questions. :(

So your not representing HER?
Seriously???
Your just curious yourself ???

Have her represent herself from now on with the facks if SHE,AS OWNER

Rick, when you donít have all your facts or at least a simple storyline to follow, you waste members valuable time here that could be better spent complaining about Millennials, Gen-Xers and parking at Cracker Barrel.

Right? So many more important items to discuss than safety.

Or we could combine both by debating the benefits of hydrogen in tires.

Again.

Since this seems to be a repeated failure, I'm going to guess broken spring hangars on underweight frame rails repaired by an unqualified metal fabricator and welder.

2007 5th wheel
Traveled weekly for 7 yrs FT loaded just under the GVWR
It is now 13 yrs old and other then some fading from the AZ Sun all's good




Way too big of a 'blanket statement' to hold any validity

Believe me, I love the fact that you have never been on the side of the road, you probably are a better driver than most, and most owners only get out 4 times or less a year and they are engineered well to sit. My response was really an answer to the OP question rather than any sort of disrespect to current owners.

I did say some better than others.

There is no disputing that no one would drive a petroleum powered vehicle built that flimsy, but they get away with it because they should never have passengers.

Now most heavy duty horse trailers and some cargo trailers are engineered for safety but these upgrades are ignored for cost and weight considerations, which both always result in a product that could be better.

Happy camping.

Cr@p. Motor homes aren't built a whole lot more robust than a TT or FW. Just saw a YT video of a Jayco MH clipping the back of a semi and it was trashed.

Yes, saw that too, very scary. I donít know of any vehicles that fair well against big rigs. The parts I saw that were trashed were made by Jayco who makes travel trailers, the chassis and engine were probably Ford. That particular motor home is on the lowest end of quality built.

They all serve a specific purpose, but many are built like the Chinese build tools, if you donít really use it and take care they can last.
