Question Argosy 30' RB developed split across the shower/bath

My '79 Argosy 30' RB has developed a split accross the shower/bath area ceiling of some 3/16th's of an inch from left to right around the middle of the room. Can this be repaired in situ so that it will not affect the re-sale of the trailer ?
{I have the rig stored in Apache Junction, AZ and live in S. Africa. I intend to remove the bumper mounted spare wheel and light-objects storage box alongside, as I think the vibration from these has caused this problem, despite being braced to the rear main frames ! ?}

Thanks for some experienced advice. Cheetah.

Could it be rear separation? Haven't heard of it with Argosy TTs, but it's fairly common with Airstreams of that era and design (rear bath).

The fact that you have a box and wheel mounted back there would seem to increase the likelihood of the shell parting company with the frame.

Others with more knowledge of the trailer's construction will doubtless add more useful information, but photos of the rear exterior would be of interest, I'm sure.
