    We have a '93 Coleman Destiny Royale. She hasn't been out in a couple years and we are hoping to get her back in good shape for use or resale at some point. My dad had pointed out that the frame needed some welding when we got her 6 years ago, but we forgot to address that unfortunately. At this point, is this something we can have repaired? Where would you go for repairs? We do know a welder. What would you advise? Both underside pictures are from the very front of the trailer frame.

    If you know a welder it should be an easy fix for him

    I wouldn't go camping until that is welded properly. No point in killing someone. I agree it is perfectly fixable though. Get it done and go camping.

    That frame is broken due to stress, not from rust..

    Oh yes! For sure, not going anywhere until it can be fixed. Just glad to know it is fixable!

    The frame will need to be set straight before welding. Both sides have dropped. The front panel has cracked in two places due to the sides dropping. I would think there are panels / joints / corners inside that have been racked, also.

    You might want a new tongue jack as well. The rotation attachment point and ring has worn down a bit.

    Frame broke in the same place on our 92. Not a bad fix.
