Thanks for posting the photos Eric.

Looks like a substantial repair. I think you can have peace of mind knowing that the repair is very strong and not likely to ever be a problem again.

Too bad it happened, hope you now get lots of enjoyment using the trailer.

I completely agree with Jim. A trailer can be subjected to a LOT of stresses in even "normal" use. Humans make the welds and even modern steel can have hidden structural defects. I think carefully looking the frame over in ANY trailer is probably something we should all have on our yearly task list. Can do it while waxing the underside, right Donna?
