Uploading pics

I have to say it's very frustrating this design on phones to upload pics ....

The link in post #3 tells you in detail where to look and what to look for, and even has pictures, if I recall correctly.

I think the frame/axle is shot. That's a huge expense/work I wasn't expecting.

I just did my axle, about $300 and 4 bolts.
Maybe a couple- 300 on the frame to shore it up.
That equals about 3-4 nights in a motel.
Don't give up too easily.

Thanks ! Back to my bouncy or spungy feel as I was towing it...I just checked tire pressure. They are 13 rims with 55/80R13 tires that are supposed to be at 35psi. They are at 19psi....I wonder if that's the reason....

The tire pressure certainly didn't help things. But like others have said, don't give up! From the pic of the trailer itself she's too cute to quit on. And if it's a project, try seeing it as an adventure. Ok, this month I've saved x amount of dollars, added to what I have, now I can look into x repair. It can all be done over time as your budget allows. Don't forget to search this site for help. If you have a repair need, sure bet someone else has done it before and posted. Often with a step by step or detailed narrative and pics. Don't quit on her! She'll be a sweet little trailer in time, patience, research and yes elbow grease.

Warmth,
Wendy

Thanks ! The remorse stage is over ! I will be removing the show to assess the frame I do know the torsion suspension will need to be replaced. The frame has already been sistered in the front with other reinforced areas. Notice the crack is right after the weld at the next weakest point. I will be taking more pics of the frame this weekend and let this site decide it's fate. I already of a "904 frame and 400 for torsion suspension Which I thought was a fair price from a local RV dealer

Pat, For awhile Escape trailers was helping folks with cracked frames and axle replacements on Bolers but they are they are apparently not doing that type of work currently due to how busy their build schedule is with their own trailers.

You may want to contact E&H Hitch in Burnaby (Near Royal Oak & Kingsway) and see if they may be willing to do some frame repair for you. I know they have a good rep doing hitches but they also have a large welding shop so they may be willing to help you out. Never know they may also be to help you out re the new axle as well. If they can't help you out ask them who they would recommend for that type of work.

Edit to add: You could also send and email to Escape asking if they could recommend an axle repair shop and a frame builder/welder in the valley as I know they have in the past outsourced some of that work so they may have someone to refer you to and they would no doubt be less expensive than anyone closer to our area.
