Voltage Triton 2951 let me down

The time has come to wash my hands of the Indiana rv business. My Triton 2951 was picked up Sat for the auction yrd. Took a hop on the Interstate. All outriggers folded like a wet noodle, frame has 1.5" negative camper, hitch crossmember rainbowed and walls buckelling at overhang/breast area.

I am done worrying about subpar frames, fibre glass delam and crap construction. I really thought this thing was a keeper for a few years to come.

Did you do one of those Dukes of Hazard jumps with it?

No. It was a pavement to concrete bridge joint and in a curve, had a good dip prior...maybe the dirt under might have been caving in.

Glad I was pulling with a dually and no one was beside when happend. Crossed 2 lanes and some of the shoulder before I regained control.

2951 poor build quality

I have a 2016 2951. Have noticed lots of poor quality construction, but not with the frame. What is an out rigger?

1) all windows installed wrong, leaked
2) wiring bad in several places
3) city water and black tank flush fittings leaked inside walls
4) wheel bearings over greased from factory, saturated brakes
5) worst chinese tires ever, blew one after 500 miles, replaced with Sailuns LRG

The list goes on, but I after two years, I think I'm on top of it.

2017 2951 Ours spent 11weeks at camping world Tampa getting a bunch of stuff done including one AC that was leaking when we bought it we had the 2 a/cs pulled off and we went to low profile. resealing everything we did ourselves after getting first rain storm I noticed windows leaking I used aircraft grade adhesive sealed all windows then removed all caulking from doors and side hatches and all other front and sides and resealed everything, we use damp rid the kind you hang up i pulls quite a bit of humidity out of the inside about every three weeks it Will fill a bag. But that is Florida humidity We believe a lot of the issues were having was from poor quality control. like every one else we like the trailer we got new regardless of style. For us easy to pull with a load our three 500 arctic cats on it or a golf cart it fits our needs keep the faith and remember why you got it in the first place
