Creak, pop noise?

My 1986 16' Scamp makes a creak, pop, gronk noise when the trailer is hauled or when walking from one end of the trailer to the other. The noise from the front part of the trailer and is most prevalent when walking in the front half of it. Anyone else have this noise? Any ideas what might be causing it and how to fix it?

Have you looked at the frame underneath? One possibility is a cracked frame, and it typically happens on the A-frame near the front of the cabin. If that's the case, don't despair - it's fixable and several other forum members have experience to help (Norm, aka honda03842, comes to mind). I'd look ASAP, though. If it is cracked, you don't want to be pulling it anywhere.

I agree on the possible frame source - get a plump friend to walk around shoeless inside whilst perusing the underneath and listening for squeaks/creaks.

Don't drill holes, try custom storage you design:
