That frame looks good, Uhaul builds their trailers to last. my Compact Jr has to have a complete replacement.

The problem with the Uhaul camper frames is that there are several sections that are round tube. Once water gets in it stays there and rusts the frame out from the inside. Several owners have had to either replace the whole frame or replace sections.

Some of the bolts we're broken, and others were down to 1/8 of an inch

Judging by your shop, you shouldn’t have any trouble repairing the frame.
Maybe putting weep holes in the tube sections would help any water drain out.

Yes, as soon as I get it done, I'll put weep holes in the bottom of the tubes, they had them half way up on the ends, water would just set there could not get out
