How can i tell if i need to replace the whole frame?

I have a 31' 78 Sovereign. I'm about to take the shell off and I counted the damaged outriggers so I could see about ordering them soon. I counted 14 damaged/deteriorated outriggers that will total around 400 dollars with tax. Anyone know how much it costs to have a new frame fabricated?

Its obviously hard to give an amount for my situation, but from previous similar experiences, any suggestions as to whether i should continue to plan for these repairs or just get a new frame?

If this . . .

is your frame, I'll vote for a new frame.

Eastern South Dakota is very pretty with hills, rivers, and trees.
