Good Luck, Hope all works out. Let us know. Hopefully you will not have any trailer frame issues.

Just checked the reese goosebox #94622, is a lippert components approved for their frames, and it even has 5th airborn technology in it.
So you should be good, its rated at 16,000 lbs

I also have the Reese Goosebox installed on my 356. I absolutely love it. No problems.

I desided to put up chair rails all around the inside of the garage. I put 1X3 oak boards a few inches off the floor and the other about 22 inches off the floor. Of course didn't put them on the ramp. Added small "D" rings I think on 24 inch centers on both rails. Some were less for smaller items. Bought bunch of bungee cords and strapped all 6 chairs, card table, griddle, mop bucket and mop and broom and two full dresser Harleys a 2012 Limited and 2014. Needless to say it is full but worked great. Also built a clothes hanging rack and mounted it on the wall on the street side up high above the bike on that side. After set up put couple of wire rack on the shelf system for storage and hanging towels. Spent a week in Florida after Easter with 6 people and worked out fine. Also mounted couple of tiedowns for ratchet straps on vertical center of the ramp door and strapped step ladder on the inside. Next project is to put "E" rails from front to back on floor next to each wall and up the center with the front center part back to the bed removable before carpet. Will make tying down the two fat bikes much easier. Heading to Yellowstone for about 3 weeks in July. Don't want any difficulty with cargo as it is 1700 miles each way.
Like everyone else am having problems with the staples pulling out in bed room. I think the flexing of the front overhang area is what is causing the problem. I am thinking of building a sliding joint cover. Did this on the outside of a Sierra that kept cracking the fiber glass under the King Size slide out. Fixed it couple of times before trying a sliding joint and cutting the fiberglass and putting a plate over it hold the glass in place and still move. Worked couple of years until got rid of it to buy the Puma Toyhauler.

Ok it seems the last repair didn't work. I still have the wall separation in the master bedroom. I'm going to contact warranty and let them know. I plan to finish the camping season out before taking it back in for any repair. Anyone else who has this issue come up with a fix? I'm sure it's the frame flexing too much, how do they repair that???

Hi F&R. I had two instances of the same problem last year. Second trip into the local dealer for warranty service and three trips this year and so far so good. Do not know what they did but what they did not do is a good job with the seam tape. I am going to buy roll and redo the seams. If I have the problem this year I too will be seeking support from Palomino\Puma.
Good Luck and keep us informed.
