Default 2000 Gulfstream Innsbruck Slide needs to be replaced

Hi,

Recently purchased a 2000 Gulfstream Innsbruck travel trailer. During cleanup and preparation for a camping trip, noticed water pouring thru the roof of the slide during a heavy rain. After a closer look, the slide is damaged beyond repair and needs to be replaced. The trailer trailer is not safe to travel due the slide currently separating. I called Gulfstream and they do not sell replacement slides.

Does anyone know of any online instructions for rebuilding a slide? I've watched Youtube videos but did not get specific details of the reconstruction.

Any suggestions or help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Melissa

Welcome to the Forum.

Obviously this isn’t going to be a quick fix. IMO, you’re gonna want a garage to do the work inside so you you’re not worrying about additional water damage, vandalism etc while you’re doing the work.

I see several options:
1) You slowly tear the slide down, taking pictures and measurements while you slowly pull everything apart. Then using those measurements rebuild everything to specs.

2) You remove the slide completely, then instead of rebuilding it you basically put in a solid wall...no slide.

3) Sell the camper for parts and move on...


Good luck


EDIT: wow just noticed the date..
