If the frame was channel then it would be possible but for rectangular tube, not so much. It's the most basic kind of welding. Which kind of reminds me of that old joke with the punch line something like; "we've established what you are, now we're only discussing price"

Thanks to Escape for alerting us that the frame needs strengthening. I'll get it done and I won't worry about going down the road.

But ignore all the forumites who chime in to say that it is a simple thing, that it only takes two minutes to set up, that anyone can do it. All they are saying is that they have never done it.

I'm pretty sure I have read every post in this thread, and I didn't see anyone saying anything remotely like "anyone can do it".

Why are members that have a trailer with a 4" frame even commenting on this frame recall fiasco ? If the structural integrity of YOUR trailer was questionable, you might be a bit more concerned. Are there currently openings for moderators ?

I think it could only be called a fiasco if the recall is fraught, fraught I say, with failure, gnashing of the teeth, angst, an other serious psychological maladies. I am an affected customer, I'll get her welded up and away we go. I will be able to get it done to my satisfaction for $50 easily. I have friends in low places, where the whiskey flows and the beer chases my blues away.

Sheesh .....we're on the road - won't be home for another week and a half ......not even slightly worried - may even arrange for the re-enforcement to be done when we go to next May's Escape Rally - that'll be the next time we travel that far west .......

Like many others, I am a bit frustrated and disappointed that we have to go through this. But in the grand scheme of things, it is a relatively insignificant issue to deal with. I will either get it done locally and pay a bit more, or will wait until next summer and stop in at Escape while on vacation and have the pros do it. I will do no teeth gnashing and will not pull out any of my few remaining hairs worrying about this.

I wonder if the recall offer applies only to the original purchaser?

Regards,

I would really doubt that. I am sure it extends to any new owners of these trailers too.
