Pics of the repair

Trailer jacked up and supported



building the custom sized blocks out of high grade aluminum, this is what cost me the most.







The finished product



pic of the old sping and the new one



all installed. The jack was used to hold the axle up while we removed the U bolts.

yeah this would be me that you spoke to in pine creek storage. im glad you showed up that day and told me about it. it took some argueing with the service dept and a few phone calls but the all the springs got replaced at standens via extended warranty. the following monday after our conversation i contacted westerns service and his response was " never heard of that before" i found that hard to believe. and no response from gulf stream, which is not surprising. i gotta bring it in tomorrow(08/13/12) and im gonna see what service has to say about this issue. i'll update their response

ibyers,

Thank you ever so much for taking ALL the time to explain everything and to post your pics. We are not owners of this camper but were about to go and look at a 2011 to purchase and now I don't think I want to go.

I've actually had my heart set on a Nash 25C made by Northwood, which is a true four-season camper because we have kids and can only camp during January. But we thought we'd look for a used tt to save some money and also to possibly forego the four-season capabilities. Well, I don't think I want to buy one that already has problems. But the Nash is an extra $8 - 10K. Sometimes though, you get what you pay for.

So tell me, would you buy another one?

Truly appreciative,

Mary Kay

I hoping some one can help me out, Im looking at purchasing this trailer and the dealer says thet they have fixed this problem on this unit but they have no record of it. They say the axle has been changed is there a way to find out?

Attached is a picture of the axle sticker.

Thanks!
