|So glad I didn't have to back the trailer into the service bay!|
I also discovered yesterday openings around the wheel well on the other side. It will be more difficult to repair due to cupboards above the wheel well on the floor. What I discovered was duct tape bridging the gap between the well and flooring...... who does that????
No wonder that the trailer was like a dust bomb went off in it after every trip on a dirt road!!
I understand not feeling competent to undertake some of the trailer repairs required to keep our little vintage babies sound but duct tape qualifies in my book as a stop gap measure to get you to a repair shop..... NOT as a permanent solution.
So now I will be looking at getting the other wheel well repaired so we will be water and DUST tight. Yes, not having a sticks and brick house relieves one a great deal of repairs, but trailers or motor homes have a whole slew of their own maintenance issues.
If this has sounded like a rant, please forgive me but I have tried to keep my blog accurate as to the pleasures AND the trials of vintage trailer life and travels. It certainly would not be an accurate picture if I only painted a picture of one stunning vacation location following another. There is certainly a flip side.
