We have a 2009 bighorn, the weld and the metal has cracked and the front of our trailerbis coming apart. Heartland has offered to assist in the repairing of the outside of the trailer and lippert said would do a goodwill and repair for free.
Caych is they want me to have the trailer welded here in texas and then pull it to indiana to have it inspected. To weld it the outside has to be taken off. I have reported this issue to nhtsa.
Everyone that has had or currently has any frame issues needs to file a report too. Make them fix the defective trailers at their expense.
