Aging, cracks, separations?

Hi, We have a 2002 25' Classic.......all of "us" are aging I/we have a an interior separation on the bathroom ceiling opposite the hallway. Just a little crack but it seems to be widening and lengthining.


For a long time we have had movement away from the kitchen wall of the sink assembly.....not much but it is getting more pronounced.

We "sit" now (for the second year) at Ponderosa Shadows Airstream Park in Pinetop, AZ, for 5+ months a year.

As far as I know the coach is levelled and properly stabilized (the door opens )

Is this natural?

The trip one-way from home (Tucson) is about 185 miles and my tyres are balanced.

Any of you have similar problems?

Hello, This is not natural. Best to look into it.

How about a couple of pictures?

That may help us figure out what is going on.

Are any of the rivets around the area sheared off?

Thank you two for the replies......the cracks/gaps are on the inside of the trailer. No rivets involved that I know of.

I can take and email pictures but I do not know how to post pictures on this forum

Know where your photos are stored on your computer. When you post choose the Advanced option. Choose Manage Attachments or add photos. Click the Browse button. Find your file and photo. Click Open. Click Upload. Click Close this Window. Simple isn't it?

OK, I will try this tomorrow. We are having a storm right now and it is not a good time for me to clear the kitchen for pics.

When you open the POST REPLY option below the last post you will seea paper clip in the bar above where you are typing. Click on the paper clip and it will open a box that offers you a chance to browse you computer for the picture you want to attach. Browse and find where you have stored your picture and click upload.

There is a max. width and height of 1600 X 1600 so you may have to reduce your picture first with what ever picture management system you use and save the reduced picture than browse to it and click upload.
