Just an update on our fiver. The 5er has been sitting on the lot of a repair shop waiting for the insurance company to get their hands off their butts to send someone out to show us where the manufacturers defect is. After many phone calls they agreed to have the wall removed inside at OUR expense unless they agree to the repairs. Well the wall is open and there is NO damage to the structure of the rv. As a matter of fact,the wall studs are metal and are the biggest ones we have seen in an RV. The studs are about 6 inches wide and there is no damage or broken welds in the area of the large crack. So now its yet another waiting game to see what excuses they come up with to get out of paying our claim, which is over $10,000.


Which repair shop do you have the 5ver at. We are in Waterloo and drive to Florida a couple of times a year. Know that some of the roads are really bad and sometimes surprised but grateful never had damage like that.

I have no idea how to post a picture on this forum with the pictures being on my laptop and not a server where there is a url to link to.

Tundra,
If you will follow these directions exactly, it is very easy to post pictures on our forums. One of our moderators, 1492, developed this photo posting app to post your pictures. It works for other internet sites also. There is no need to have a separate hosting site for your pictures in order to use it.

It is very simple to use.
1. Upload your picture from your computer to the app.
2. Copy the resulting URL.
3. Paste that URL into your post without ANY changes. No additions or deletions.

Your picture will then appear in your post and be properly sized for use on our forums.[emoticon]

These are two different pictures of the inside wall behind where the crack is on the outside wall. NO BROKEN WELDS OR STUDS that would cause the damage the insurance company said was a factory defect.

CaLBaR, we live in Chatham and the RV shop is in Windsor, name of the place is Leisure trailers. It's the only shop in the area that could do the welding for the broken welds UNDERNEATH the RV, which we already had done at our cost. They also can repair the damage to the side of the RV where the crack is.

When you copied the URL from the app, you left off the ends of the brackets on both ends of the URL.

Here is what you posted. Notice that the first image statement bracket is missing it's left side and the the last image statement bracket is missing it's right side on both pictures.

I will fix it for you now by adding the ends of the brackets.

Thanks. From your signature I thought you lived in Kitchener. Good luck on getting your trailer fixed either by the insurance or the manufacturer.

We are from Minnesota and last winter we spent 6 months in our 5er. We travelled through the Iowa, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, Carolinas, Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas, Oklahoma, and Kansas. This was our first extended stay as we recently retired. And we were totally shocked at the condition of roads in other states. Texas seemed the worst of the bunch, but they were all bad. The height difference between the road surface and any bridge seemed to be 6 inches at times. We couldn't understand how it could be so difficult to have a road and bridge end up with their surfaces even with each other. It didn't take long to realize we had to have any loose items sitting on the floor while travelling. And we worried about breaking suspension parts every time we hit one of those bridges.
