Our Zinger

We have a 2014 Zinger. Over all it's a good trailer we have two complaints. Both on the serious side. 1) Our dry weight is 6554 lbs. with water and propane we are at 7139.6. Our axles are rated at 3500 each. They did not put heavy enough axles under our unit. I am going to up grade this winter to a pair of 5200 pound axles. 2) Before this seasons trip I did an under trailer inspection and to my surprise I found 4-6 inches of space between the water tank and the tank straps. Since we have only dry camped once before I know when it happened. I filled the tank before driving from Indianapolis to Elkhart Lake, WS. Can you imagine the mess we would have had if that tank fell out of the trailer? Someone behind us could have been hurt or killed. Prior to this years trip I removed the two thin tin strips one of which the 1/4 inch bolt was broken. Both strips had stretched the holes had elongated to the point of near failure. I run dry for the time being and have use 2" wide safety straps. The RV industry must have one hell of a lobby in Washington. When I approached Crossroads(Thor) their attitude was oh well its out of warranty. If Ford GM or Chrysler put cars or trucks on the roads with defects such as these there would be a recall. Where the heck is the CPA?

Donít forget, only 80 to 85 percent of the weight is on axels. Rest is on the hitch.

Our tires were wearing on the inside and we took the camper in to the dealer for a check. They sent us to a axle place to have them look at it. Turns out that the axles were welded on wrong from the factory. The guys who fixed it said that they always have problems with the Leppert (sp?) products. Wasn't covered by surprise.
