I just got back home from playing with my camper. I pulled the bolts that attach the floor to the frame. I wiggled everything somewhat into place. I now have clearance for both tires and it doesn't look anymore funky on the frame than it did before, probably a bit less funky. It's not noticeable unless you are actually trying to see the difference. I'm pleased with it and I think for my purposes it will be just fine.

Thanks again for all the advice and ideas!

Several of us with the similar UHaul have noticed that a number of the 1/4" bolts that hold the body to the frame were missing, broken or badly rusted. So, it might be worth your while to inspect and replace them as needed.

My bolts were all there as far as I could tell. 9 total. I did use all new bolts and will keep an eye on them. Thanks for the tip!

Jason, regarding the roof leaks, I had that problem with our Uhaul. There were a couple flaws in the seam that allowed water to leak in. The source of the leaks can be difficult to find as the water may travel in the seam until it reaches a point it can leak through. One leak on our roof seeped through the fiberglass, and you couldn't see any spot on the inside where the water was coming through. Another roof seam leak traveled down through the seam and appeared at the front window.

I started a new thread with pictures of my roof issues. Here's the link Fiberglass roof repair. Help!

I would be very interested in hearing how you repaired it.

thanks,
Jason

your new tire looks a bit off center to the hub ?

Or some of the attachment bolts have broken off/rusted off and the body has realigned itself.
