Thanks Lynkage!
I hope they take care of you and your dealer does do what is right!!

Here's what the underside of the Sabres look like:


The underbelly is connected cross-ways to these braces.

I'm not sure what the Sandpipers have, though.

Best I can pass on from the tech: There are two main I-beams running the length of the camper. The pan is attached with pneumatically punched fasteners, around the outside edges. The cross braces are smaller(6") and level with the top of the 10"ers. There is nothing down the center of the camper to attach the pan to, except in the axle area. This explains ours sagging front and rear center.
Hope y'all understand this. And, the only way to remove these fasteners is to cut them off, grinder, metabo, or a hammer + chisel.

Interesting- they're definitely made differently.

But mine appear to be self-tapping screws and not rivet/fasteners.

Weird.

Mine was attached with self taping screws that were torqued down too hard and they fell out. This let wind in there and ripped it off.

That is not normal, on any RV.
