I am interested in hearing from anyone out there who is experiencing the corrosion/rust issues on the floor and frame of Sundowner trailers produced between 1999 and 2008. These are potentially catastrophic failure issues, and there are hundreds if not thousands of trailer owners affected, many of whom may not even be aware their trailer is a potential time bomb.
I am serious about pursuing a class action lawsuit as the company continues to hide behind the "out of warranty' issue. My trailer is nine years old (one year out of structural warranty), I am still making payments, and the frame is so rusted the guy who was examining the corroded aluminum floor (a different problem) walked away in silence, after easily prying off chunks of corroded steel. I was told this corrosion issue was years in the making! Just because it was discovered out of the companies' warranty period I am stuck with a useless trailer I am still paying on and can't use! I teach riding and haul to shows, and it's my only source of income. How many of you are dealing with this?! CHECK THE FRAME AND FLOOR OF YOUR SUNDOWNER! Thank God I caught mine!! Contact me for more info or to share stories. I am located in Ohio and am serious about getting the company--whose reputation I depended on for this huge investment--to make this right!! Legal action in the works, depend on it!!!
