Frame repair

the new frame raised the door way 4-5 inches. The original steps work fine. The additional ground clearance is a plus. All the plumbing is much less exposed. The main thing I notice in towing is that it’s necessary to have a weight distribution hitch that moves the weight forward in my f150 tow vehicle.

Repaired this with full length 2x4 frame under original frame. Which appears to have repaired most of the problems. This repair gives 4” additional clearance. It appears to be a relatively clean and simple fix, at a cost of 5K. Seems to tow fine with sway bars.


What year is your trailer?
