High End Trailers

Recommended Posts

Originally, I was encouraging repair, or living with the "acne", but he keeps adding issues. Without knowing the payoff, what other issues are hiding, the OP's skill set, and what his repair budget might be, I won't even hazard a further guess. As Jack said, the fiberglass repair isn't too hard or time consuming, but full paint becomes an attractive option at this point. I guess it's gut-check time, with an emphasis on honesty.

Hi Everyone,

I went to the NADA RV site to get a value for the trailer. I assume that the bank uses the same site to determine the value of the trailer. I need to have a starting point to see what the trailer is worth. I have also sent an e-mail to the trailer manufacturer showing the problem areas. I am waiting for the trailer manufacturer to get back to me. I am interested in seeing what they have to say. I doubt if they can give me a cost for repairs. When do you stop putting money into a bottomless bucket. If the repair cost is more that 25% of the present value  of the trailer, do you move on ? Another piece of the problem is that the bank still own's the trailer. I need to see what my pay-off is, so a decision can be made. What kind of decision would you make ? I think I might be missing a piece of the problem. What I'm I missing to make a decision ? I believe that there is more going on than just acme to the fiberglass. I really don't see any high end fiberglass on a so called high end trailer.

Al, I had a similar problem on my 06 Summit.  As I recall the problem was either broken or sheered bolts/fasteners in the overhang framing.  Ken in Junction City had me cut some access holes under the overhang and look for a broken bolt. No broken bolt so I took it to the factory to be fixed and also replace a delaminated side.  I believe they had de-lam problems in production in 06.
