We have a 2016 Puma Unleashed 351THSS and now both of ours are smashed flat...... After they both flattened out I no longer have clearance issues. LOL

I for the life of me do not understand why these things don't have drag wheels on the rear bumpers because at some point and time, everyone is going to drag the back of their camper......

Yep. It did its job. Get you a couple of big tools and pull it back in shape. Stilson wrenchs may do it.

If you add Wheels remember that the Lowest part should NOT be greater than the V drag pcs.the Factory installed! If your Added Fix is Lower than Fac.it Will HIT Sooner,thus adding to your Problem! Youroo!!

If you have 'dragged' once, you will 'drag' many times over the years. My last unit that I had, I drug one of that bars completely off. I added drag wheels and they were on the cheap side with junk rubber wheels and they pulled off on the second 'drag'. Added steel drag wheels and the worked very well. Still be very aware when you go out of a sloped drive/ gas station and onto a level road way and your unit is 'too long' and will 'lift' in the back as you turn into the road. If you have room to manuviour, when pulling out, take the 'transision' at a slant and not 'head on'. Also, a few campground 'sites' are not level enough and you will also drap, backing in and pulling out. DO NOT put your drag wheels lower than the drag bars that are on your unit, you want them close to the same height. You will drag more often if lower and then comes the possiability of bending your frame from a hard hit/drags.

I definitely would not put drag wheels on either!
Fix or replace what was there.

An after thought, (Turbs post) Looking at a picture of the Wildwood, it does seem to have a ton of clearance under it and should (almost?) never drag (if I am looking at the correct picture) My former unit has a low clearance set up and would drag at some RXR tracks. No drag wheels should be needed on your unit.

Do not install castors on an ultra lite trailer.
You'll bend the frame.

Like everyone says. "Curb Feelers" They make noise when you are getting in trouble.

I bent our triangle piece of metal and asked our dealer to see if they could repair it and they mentioned the only way to fix it was to heat the metal and bend it back but they didn't want to do that since my black tank sits right next to it. So I left it alone.
