RE: Kingsport (by Gulfstream) TT owners beware!

That really sounds like what happened. I never expected to get any response from the Gulfstream customer service, but they actually responded! :E HE wanted pictures, so I forwarded those above to him. The response I got back was "the plant your unit was manufactured in was closed during the 2012 model year ….………so I was unable to send to the manufacturing facility for review and or comment" So ... basically what I suspected..... nothing. It's all repaired now, and I'm confident it won't leak, (using 4" wide Eternabond tape, and lap seal. It's just frustrating as hell that I didn't have to cut the membrane at all!!!

Kingsport (by Gulfstream) TT owners beware!

We have a 2011 Kingsport 288RLs (by Gulfstream Coach, Inc) Recently, while cleaning the trailer, I discovered a soft spot in the roof just in front of the front vent (over the bedroom). There is no leak showing inside, so I assumed it was a pinhole leak that hadn't gotten bad enough yet to get through. I knew I had to open the membrane and repair the roof, which I did. Imagine my shock when I found a crescent had been cut into the OSB and then stapled and covered with metal tape!!! I can't even begin to imagine what the purpose of this would have been. I'll attach photos to show you what I found. I called and emailed customer service at Gulfstream Coach but of course, I haven't gotten a reply. (No surprise on a 10 yer old trailer) I am posting this to warn other Kingsport owners (and future owners) to be ware of this potential problem in your trailers. After I cut the membrane, I discovered that there WAS NO LEAK! Now obviously I have to repair the roof and membrane. Probably just as well that I fix this thing, but it is extremely frustrating to have to fix some slipshod workmanship like this. Frustrated and disgusted in Ontario Canada OK, so I guess you can't upload images. Too bad :S Here they are ... Thanks, treyster. I couldn't find how to post images here. https://i.imgur.com/F5dZCGil.jpg https://i.imgur.com/UjOw2Z9l.jpg https://i.imgur.com/sxezDf9l.jpg
