Hi David, Good to know. Recently, as I was on the highway going about 65 mph, the trailer door swung open. Scary. Got off the highway and bought white duct tape which did the job in getting me to Jersey. The latch fix that I had professionally done the day before failed!
I will never have that happen again. Ever. If I can help it.
I am having welders fashion backer plates for the hinges, and alloy (bendable) metal covers for the holes in the fiberglass column. They can be removed if the door needs to be tightened in the future.
Now onto the frame.
Was it you that identified 4 absolutely necessary and inevitable fixes for fiberglass trailers?
1. Door sag
2. Frame safety
3. Resealing windows
with butyl (sp?) tape
and one other.... hmmm....
I agree and am prioritizing those fixes so there's no sweat on those basics in the future... of course, there's always another project just for the fun of it...
Happy, and safe, camping,
