Bent frame?

We just bought a 2015 signature ultra lite 8311. After leveling the trailer I noticed that the rear of the trailer, past the axles, slopes down slightly and is not level. Is this something to be concerned about or is it normal for a trailer this size?

It might be something to have checked. Several years ago I worked for a mobile home manufacturer and all of the frames came in bowed upwards on the ends so that when the weight of the house was put on it would level out. The frame would then be in tension so it could support more weight. Every now and then we would have a frame lose its camber and sag to the floor. I suspect that may be happening to your trailer.

Well that's not good. Do I have any recourse? Is this kind of thing covered under warranty or am I stuck?

This would be covered under warranty and something that your dealer should help you with. Otherwise, there are contact sheets floating around the site here at FRF for the warranty manager for your brand- you can always contact them directly.

Not yet. I'm taking the trailer in this weekend for this and a few other items that made themselves known over the summer.
