- Did you purchase/obtain your Caravel in the vicinity of where you live?
- If not, was the weather change great?
I ask because my Bambi lived in Tennesee and when I adopted it I took it to the desert of California. I never knew aluminum could shrink and stretch. Guess what? It does. So I did end up with a couple of popped rivets.
Also I believe simply changing from an old, tired and dried out axle to a nice new springy one would affect the skins. After all, the old axle gradually aged and then you give it an instant face lift. Not fun I am sure.
Drill out the old, pop in the new!
How long have you had your trailer?
And of course, we need pictures!!!!!!!!!
