Just a general post to all f/g trailer owners out there...
I bought a 1972 Trillium
1300 last year. When I got it home I began giving it a thorough once over.
I was SHOCKED and HORRIFIED at how corroded the U-shaped mounting straps which hold the cabin to the chassis were. One had almost completely failed and the other three were so rusted I could bend them with my fingers.
I feared that if I had hit a big bump on the highway my trailer might well have come apart!
I have replaced them all with new ones and doubled them up Ė so I now have eight.
Don't assume yours are solid. I strongly recommend replacing them... especially if your trailer is older.
