Stiffy

All this stiff TV stuff has got me thinking.
I suspect my coach had damage to the front when I bought it. At the time, I thought the loose lower beltline was just a cosmetic issue and never gave it the attention I now know it requires. While my TV is huge, I keep it pretty loaded and I guess, due to the long distance from the rear wheels to the tow hitch, I have a good deal of squat. 45,000 miles latter I am readdressing the front rivet issue and plan to remove the inside panels. Question: where can I get the channel that attaches the front apron to the trailer floor? Also, the 6 vertical braces in front? What kind of rivets should be used and where can I get them and the tool/s to install them?

Thanks in advance.

Michael

You can get a rivet gun just about any where and depended one the rivet size you can get them froms home depot or lowes too.But for the ones you cant find at these places you can check these web sites http://www.vintagetrailersupply.com/ or http://www.inlandrv.com/parts/ either Steve or Andy can get you going in the right directions
