Bunny's Got a Problem.....

Well, after our last trip I took a closer look at the floor. I first noticed the problem when I felt a bump in the floor. Upon closer inspection, I now see a crack that runs across the floor. Even the linoleum is cracked. DH says he doesn't see it, but I looked again today and it definitely has a crack that runs from one side to the other. There is a tiny (1/32") separation in the floor also. This is in the area just over the axle. What does this mean??? DH just put a new axle on her last year and said everything looked pretty good under there. I will say that Bunny was bouncing along behind us and seemed really shook up inside. I've read stories of how smooth the ride is in an airstream, but it wasn't that way at all! Help!

How about the condition of your wheels? Have they been properly balanced?

Well, we managed to hit some tire debris from a truck on the road and ended up losing our tire tread. DH had to change that tire when it was 117 degrees outside! So, we decided to even it out and buy another tire for the other side. He just put the two new tires on it the same day.
The floor seems solid when I walk around on it. But I really don't like the crack in it!

update: now that it's freezing cold outside again, the crack has disappeared. It looks exactly like it did when we bought it a couple of years ago. I guess it must have expanded from humidity (?). Anyway, I don't think "Bunny" has a problem, but is this normal? As you can see, I love my trailer
