Unhappy Eclipse trailer problem

I have a 2010 2H slant that has been used very little, think I actually had it out a whole 2 times this year. I had doors open to clean before storing for winter, when went to shut larger of the 2 would not close...finally figured out the door was off kilter, looked closer and the top and bottom hinges have come apart! This makes no sense to me; maybe if it was the 2 upper or both lower, but one of each? Company does not answer calls/ emails. I think if I had looked closer at the hinges before buying I would not have- thanks for any information.

Looks like you have to transport the trailer to them to get anything done, Are you in Ohio ? If they wont aswer their calls I would call one last time. Let them know this is your last attempt to contact them, The next call you make will be to the Ohio Attorney General and BBB,

Unfortunately I think you are right on....looks like they will make "off site" repairs, BUT only at their discretion! Have posted a few times on thier FB page but I am pretty sure they delete that as soon as they see it. If it really is a family business they are not treating past customers very well, the dealer I bought it from said they are no longer selling them due to poor customer service, when I mentioned that in my very first email to the company- whoa! Got a response on the same day! Thanks for your input.

Hi, I purchased an Eclipse trailer in 2009. I've had issues with it and have repeatedly contacted them for a resolution. Unfortunately, I am being shuffled from one person to another and getting nowhere. I've read about concerns that others have had with these trailers and I'm regretting my purchase. Please if anyone is considering a purchase make sure you know what you're getting. One issue I have is the quality of the aluminum. My trailer has been sitting under cover in Florida and only on the road twice since I purchased it. The aluminum is badly pitted and I've been told I won't be able to correct that. I'm also hearing that the welding on them is not the best which gives me concern as to their safety. Their customer service has not been the best.

FYI.....The BBB lists their rating as an "F" based on complaints about warranty and service issues.
    01-01-2012, 04:02 PM
Wow, an F rating? I was considering getting an Eclipse trailer. Not sure I will now.

Wouldn't the dealer where you purchased the trailer honour the warranty?
    01-01-2012, 04:12 PM
Hi Albion, Yes, I was surprised about the F rating as well. I'm dealing directly with the main office on this. I've been trying to get these things resolved now for 5 months. I'm about to report them to the BBB myself.

The only reason I'm putting this info out is because I want people to make certain they know what they are getting before they purchase. I wish I had done more research on their quality and customer service before I bought mine.

problems, trailer
