If you Have any mechanical ability and are not in a hurry you can purchase new parts from factory and install them your self. I have a 1978 31' Sovereign that was hit in the back end and made it a 29' trailer. I was able to repair it. I,m a very senor citizen.

It requires removing a lot of rivets and putting in new ones. I have all the information you need to do this and happy to pass it on by email or phone.
