Hi Ellpea I have a "Lil" one with the boat trailer frame. It is 1993. I have had it for 9 years or so. The skid was worn. I thought nothing about it, ( just low gutter, ? ) It was low just a good step in. I have felt it needed to be replaced for awhile. Posted some help needed. i don't know how to navigate very well on the site. F.R.V. I found Denabear inputs. I felt bad at the end and was sad for we others that had to exist. I read all input on your post and look of the Frame by D Borrego. It doesn't show the key attachment point of the axle. I had a bent axle, that I discovered at Watson Lake North West Terr. Ca. existing when I bought the rig. I said to my wife the other day " I think we need to replace the axle " Now, do you have any new info or pictures of the progress by the axle co., or how it was resolved. I hope you do not need a stool to enter the door. I just thought they may not do photo,,,why would they have an interest.
