Yes! We took her to Paul at A&P Vintage Trailer Works
outside of Ft. Worth and he was able to sort of re-create a (much better) welded version of my bolt-on patch. He cut out most of the corroded steel and replaced the bottom edge of that part of the A-frame. He replaced some of the forward outriggers and coated everything in POR-15, so it should be set for a good while.
He also helped us out with some brake problems and set us up with a new front step, along with tons of sage advice on other projects I have on the docket. On top of all that, Paul (along with his wife) is just a genuinely nice person.
I didn't get any photos of the job in progress, but here are some I just shot.
