Frame flex issue 2015 Spartan 1239

For several months I have been trying to get this issue resolved. Primetime is saying this is normal. I have taken pictures of hitched and un hitched. The closet doors even move when transferring weight from hitch to landing gear. Does anyone else have this problem with their Spartan?

Much has been written over the past couple of years on this Forum about upper deck flex, mostly involving Sanibels. I believe that some have also expressed similar concerns with the toy hauler models built by Prime Time Mfg. The problem you are experiencing with your unit is not normal! My Sanibel and others were repaired by Recreational Specialties in Elkhart IN, as contracted by Prime Time Mfg. Good luck!

Shouldn't be that way. I have a Crusader and before that a Holiday Rambler. I used the door under the pin box as a reference. Hooked or unhooked the top hinge would be 1/2" above the tail gate looking in the rear view mirror. Traveling down the road there was no change in the reference.

I just picked up our Sanibel from some service at camping world and they noticed a flex. As soon as I hooked up and retracted the landing gear the whole front flexed up about a 1/4 of a inch. I take it that this is not normal.
