211rd and gorilla tape

Third time out, a short trip to a campground 23 miles away and my 6 month old 211rd starts falling apart less than 10 miles from storage.
The section if lower front metal just starts pulling apart. I limp it to the park at 45 and head to Wal-Mart looking for gorilla tape to hold it together.
I am not amused.

Wow. What a let down. I’m so sorry for you. Hopefully you can get it temporarily fixed and protected from the weather until you can have it repaired.

Hope to get it to dealer Thursday

Talked to the service department. Gotta love RV places. Sales is open to 6 and on Saturdays.
Service is open to 5 p.m. and not on Saturdays.
It's like can we come up with some hours that would make it even harder on the customer to use our service department. But if you want to buy a camper, we will make it as easy as possible.
That Gorilla tape will be tested on the short drive from the park to the dealer - about 50 miles.

That’s good stuff. It should hold.

A roll of gorilla tape, never leave home without it. That stuff is awesome.

That set aside, I would be pissed about that falling off of my new trailer. But I'm not shocked.

Staff at the dealership was...1) impressed with the gorilla tape and 2) shocked at my trailer issue as it was one none of the guys had seen before.
Lucky me.
Their sign in the service department indicated vehicles dropped off this week should be completed by first week of December.

I'm with markandkin, never leave without gorilla tape. Also coat hanger, popcicle stick and paper clip. These trailers are flimsy. At least my 211rd hasn't shed it's skin yet. Good luck. Please let us know how it turns out.
