Greatings from Gulfport

This is my intro page as directed. My wife and I got a screaming deal on a less than 1 year old 2106FSB Micro Minnie which checked off almost all our requirements for a towable. We have been having lots of fun with it giving us travel freedom, especially with this covid stuff going on. I have been fixing things like water leaks, rusty screws, rusty bolts and broken frame supports after every trip so far. Next thing is to replace the mattress which doesn't really support anything over 50 pounds. I also need to fix the cheap plywood under the mattress that's starting to splinter. I've read that all RV's have similar issues, but I find that a bit hard to believe. Simple things like using stainless steel screws and bolts wouldn't add much to the cost of building it but apparently too much for Winnebago. Faced plywood under the mattress would be smart too!

Welcome to the forum Greg. Lots of information on this forum.

Well, we all travel in an earthquake rolling down the road. We have a pretty big MH and we have problems also,. It's unavoidable. As for the manufacturer beefing up their product that is not going to happen because of their bottom line. If they started using stainless steel and good grade plywood the price for a unit would go up considerably. However, I do realize that the quality of construction is not the best.

wouldn't be that much

It only cost me $5.71 at a local fastener store to replace all underside bolts and screws. I bet they could do better buying in bulk.
