The frame cracks are not due to people recklessly towing their 5er. Our 5er is a 2014 Sanibel 39' which is used full time. There are hundreds of trailers that have been fixed or are being fixed. If you read this forum you would know it's a known fact FR are still producing trailers with frames that are not strong enough for the modern trailer. These come with residential fridge, bigger holding tanks & they have not compensated for the extra stress on the frame. The weld cracks & it makes it hard to impossible to put the bedroom slide in. So now you are informed so before you past judgement & accuse people who have had this issue of not knowing how to drive get your facts straight first. It's a manufacturing issue.
