No manuals for 57's. Not much help, many inconsistencies. However, it is a wonderful trailer, just needs some patience probably.
Do drop some belly pan, and check the floor perimeter carefully inch for inch for rot/decay. No sense in doing anything else if the subfloor and frame have rot or rust. So, do some exploratory surgery, expose the frame rails and cross members in places, and take a look at what you have to work with first. Be objective....
Did you know that despite of what others say, Overlanders ROCK?
