sounds like it might be time for a phone call to a lawyer about both the insurance company and forest river?

There is no warranty so forest river is out of it.

There are some 2013 era posts over at RV.net expressing bad experiences with swivel-wheel add-on trailers - specifically that the frame needs reinforced & your warranty is out-the-door... That said, a good commercial trailer shop should be able to straighten & reinforce the frame without breaking the bank. IMO, for the price of involving a lawyer the OP could be back on the road w/reinforce frame ready-to-go...

Rhino has the answer. Stop and fix the frame and then reinforce for the tote and go on your way!

Even Lippert has come out with a kit to reinforce the Equa-Flex which reinforces that it is an additional load on the frame.

IMO, this is not a warranty issue but a road hazard and should have been covered under the camper's collision/comprehensive (not the tow vehicle's).

Now, if the camper was not insured for those; I see your problem.

Additionally, without an accident report that gave the location of the pothole that caused the damage you will have a long row to hoe proving your case to the insurance company or try to recover from the municipality that owned the road with the pothole.

If you manufacture something that later turns out not to be built to do what it is supposed to do you are a possible target for being liable, warranty does not come into it that is why I suggested to the OP that he should be reporting this to the NHTSA. FR would point out that it did not make the chassis, so and on till the truth comes out.

What I'm saying is forest river "sabre" does not condone adding a hitch or pulling anything behind there 5th wheels.
If you do the warranty on the frame is void.
It's obvious that the op pulls a trailer behind his 5th wheel therefor warranty void.
Just stating facts.
