Remember to put Butyl Tape along the underside of the support bar(s) you use, similar to window installations to seal the through-bolts.

Fred, thanks for the reply. Would you happen to have any photos of this fix?

Thanks Joe that is interesting. I have a bit of concern about the added weight up there. I'm worried that if I add weight to the top without some kind of bracing from the floor inside the camper that the sides might start poking out and my door will get all funky.

Anyone want to fill me in on that??

Thanks

Sorry, I looked through my album of it and I didn't photograph that. I sold that trailer in 2004 after I bought the Fiber Stream.

Thanks. I got an estimate today to reinforce the roof and get the sag out. He wanted $1000. I really didn't expect it would cost that much.
