Broken Frame

Hi

I have a 2018 MiniLite Rockwood 1905 purchased in May 2017.
After 3 seasons on regular roads, I discovered this May (2020) that the frame of my travel trailer is broken at the weel level on the door side of the trailer. See photos. The frame is bent towards the back, the body frame showing at the back.

Is that frame guaranteed? Who does the repair?

Thanks!

Jean-Pierre

Hello,

That is awful to see on such a new Trailer. I would take your VIN call Forest River. The frame is made by Lippert.

By chance was there a bike rack or other rack on the back?

I think that what B_And_B was trying to say is that you need to call Forest River directly. This forum is not part of FR, it's just a place for owners of Forest River products to get together and share/discuss things that they have in common. There is no official Forest River presence here, so posting here is not going to get you help from the manufacturer.

This if you are the original owner.
Also the frame has a separate warranty that's longer than the FR one year factory warranty. Usually it's a 5 or 6 year warranty so contact Lippert and send pics. Be sure to tell them you are the original owner.
