It's a good idea to inspect any Lippert frame for cracks and bad welds. Mine failed on my 2010 Keystone Cougar in 2010 - fourth trip out. Dropped the 5er onto my truck bed while going down the highway.

Everyone should inspect their frames. Especially if it is Lippert. I have some nice photos I would love to share of my Lippert frame failure. The inspection is quite easy and will take very little time.

Here are some photos of what mine looked like when it failed and how I fixed it.

You should have started your own thread with those pictures--that's something!


Yep, actually drove to all of these places---in the last eight years. Missed Rhode Island and New Jersey.

Did you notice how our trailers, mine and ib516 looked identical?
