Relax. My 2010 27FB Flying Cloud is doing rather well, thank-you.

I don't know if this is an apro pos analogy, but I'm going to spew it anyways. Today I was talking to one of the original DC-10 pilots. Now, that is one airplane that got off to a rough start. After the passengers started falling through the cabin floors, most would run for the next departure gate whenever a DC-10 pulled up. Yet, he put in thousands of hours on the same a/c without incident. He claims "Vigilance and a good rapport with maintenance always saw me through."

So....am being vigilant, doing everything I can about maintenance, and unless the FAN tells me otherwise, am not looking down!

Met with our mechanic Bill, great guy!
Went through our list and they are now going to look over things...

He isn't sure the floor is a rot problem, might be normal 'spring'. They are going to look at it first of course.

You guys think a 1/4 inch movement to the floor is normal when walking? If so let me know, this is out first trailer so we are clueless...

Maybe it is me then...
Just seeing over a 1/4 separation from the cupboard when walked on, and the squishy feels scare me....
I wonder how far apart the cross beams are each way...

Thanks eh!

Ours doesn't feel squishy or move a 1/4". Sounds suspicious to me. I hope it is okay for your sake. Bill was our tech several years ago and everything got done fine. You are in good hands.

That's great news on the floor. It means your stay may be considerably shorter than planned. Also, you may get to sleep in the trailer each night; unlike us, where everything was torn apart.

I bought mine used. So I blame the leaks and damage not just on Airstream but also the selling dealer for poor inspection and setup. And then the first owner for not following up diligently on warranty work like you are doing. For my part, I didn't do a great inspection, but we wanted the trailer and are still happy regardless of the unnoticed condition it was in.

Ok so Rick took Stacey and I to the factory.
We saw raw frame, frame with floor only and then a complete unit. They all have at least the 1/4 inch of play....

False alarm on the floor, sorry ;(

Working on the other issues now...
