Hello Fellow Fiberglass RVers.
I've had a sudden development that is of concern. AFter several uneventful outings towing the Scamp
13, a few hours into a 700+ mile trip from east Texas to Big bend National park the camper developed a bad vibration out of nowhere as if a wheel had "suddenly" gone out of balance, which doesn't seem possible. Anyway, I jacked up the trailer and checked the bearings, tried shifting the cargo in the camper and the 4runner, changed the angle of the hitch, anything I could think of. Nothing helped. We carried on to to Big Bend and when we finally arrived and opened the trailer, doors had fallen off, unscrewed screws or ripped out of the walls, everything, everywhere, etc... SO I deal with it and enjoyed our stay, and drove home with fingers crossed, no casualties other than the interior of the camper.
SO... what the heck? My first thought was "unbalanced wheel", and I will have them checked asap, BUT, can a wheel become "suddenly unbalanced"? There were never any lead weights on the wheels, so it's not like I lost one.
Any ideas as to what is going on?
