Itasca Rear Cap Replacement

The owner of this Itasca caught the rear cap on a fence post and pulled it loose from the left rear side seam. Unfortunatly, when it pulled loose it flexed the entire fiberglass cap and produced stress cracks over 80% of the cap. WE ordered a new cap from Itasca and proceeded to replace the cap and then matched the custom graphics on the rear cap.

Merhow 6 Horse with Living Quarters

This Merhow 6 horse trailer was rear ended in traffic. At first glance it looks like it only received damage to the two rear doors and frame work. Because the trailer is so long (44'), the entire length of frame work and side skin absorbed the energy of the impact.


As a result of this enegy absorbsion, almost 2/3rds of the trailers exterior side sheets buckled and had severed rivets. 21 side sheet panels including the stainless steel nose sheets needed to be replaced. The trailer frame also needed to be inspected for fractures and alignment.


After the sheets were removed we discovered that the insulation had mold in in it (due to voids in the seams alowing water to enter). Along with mold we also found that mice had been nesting in the walls (mice enter RV's thru the floor and other openings). We replaced all of the insulation with a better quality and higher R factor.


We added extra header reinforcement above the side doors. We then prepped all of the steel frame for superior adhesion of the new bonding agent which secures the new side sheets to the trailer. We also upgraded the sheets from the original .040" thick aluminum to a .063" sheet. We also used stainless steel rivets instead of the original aluminum rivets (aluminum rivets in a steel frame never lasts long).


After all the side sheets were installed, it was time to fabricate new rear doors. Because Merhow was no longer in business we had to fabricate from scratch all new doors. We used extrusions used by another horse trailer manufacture and were able to give this trailer an OEM appearance with heavy duty construction.


As you can see in the photos, the owners now have a trailer that works like new but is now better than it was a new trailer!

Itasca Front End Damage

This is an older model Itasca that suffered front end damage as a result of hitting a deer. Because of its age, a new front cap was not available, so we had to put all the pieces back together along with making our own head light bucket.


After all the fiberglass work was finished, the customer asked us to apply a Scorpion urethane coating rather than paint the repaired area. The customer was tired of getting rock chips in the paint, so the coating was exactly what he wanted.


The finished product is a very durable repair that looks factory and is very low maintenance.

Jayco Eagle Side Swipe Repair

The Walkers brought us a nice challenge this past Winter. While trying to navigate a tight drive way, the side of the trailer struck a fence post, leaving a significant gouge in the fiberglass siding of their Jayco. They were very lucky that the penetration to the interior wall was located just under the shower pan.


We started by removing the bottom aluminum J-wrap and all wall fixtures. We then rebuilt the wall structure, graffed a new piece of Filon skin then proceeded to bond and fuse all of the seams with fiberglass resin and fiber mesh.


After the new Filon was fused, then came the sanding and blending of the surface in prepperation of the new paint blend. The paint blend was perfect and virtually un detectable!


The final task was to install the new aluminum J-wrap and install all of the moldings and fixtures.


 Another happy camper on the road again!
