can you be more specific on where the gap was? I noticed a gap on the plastic shroud around the pin, appeared as the Silicon did no hold, they reapplied silicon and I haven't paid much attention since then.

Every time I hooked my trailer there was a gap on the curve (under the light) and when I unhooked the gap went away

I change the small 1/8" plates and I put a bigger plates made of 1/4" steel plate, I reinforced each cross beam with a 1/4" thick angle, the welds don't look to pretty but it's weld all the way, I stepped on my little dome light by accident so I need to replace that one, I ran into a problem I took the wires that were ran through the beam so It won't burn while I weld and I couldn't run it back through that beam so I had reroute it but it's all secure and working, I'm thinking about buying and air hitch, I'm sure it will help a lot, be careful out there guys I opened the whole front and the material they used is really thin, they make it this way so it's lighter but in my personal opinion it's not safe, I have more pics of the material they used, the frame for the front possum belly is so thin that when they welded it made a hole so they just put some plastic corners and staple to the frame so it stayed in place and that frame is hold on with a couple tapping screws

Hey there mario_bovio, first post here and on my way out for work so apologies for no sig/no introduction, but did you ever get the soft floor issue fixed? We're looking at purchasing a 2014 356qbq and the kitchen area floor is VERY soft. The dealer said it needs new bracing and they'll fix it if we buy it...but it's making me a little hesitant to pull the trigger. My wife and I will be full-timing with 2 boys and the last thing we need is a floor/frame issue. Let me know how that worked out for you! I don't mind looking for another model, but it's hard to find a newer 5er with 2 full baths at this price point. Thanks!!

I have the 356QBQ, and my floor is fine. My advice is find another one without the floor issue. Don't buy a problem!

Hi there Rico15, the way I tried to fix it with 2x4's it helped a little bit I still have some soft spot in a few place, I'm a full timer with my wife, my daughter and my twin boys and I do about 25000 miles a year, in my opinion look for something else, I'm really disappointed with this rv, I just upgrade my axles to 7,000 lbs axles, one of my tire (front axle) came out with hub and everything in May and I put a new axle because the other was bad after that happened but at the end of August the something happened but this time it was on the back axle so I told the shop to put bigger axles (big mistakes, the shop took advantage that I needed my trailer ASAP so I ended up paying $5000, I should have done it myself) but like I said I do put a lot of mileage on it. Good luck on your next purchase!
