Floors,Walls Roof.

Any one else have these problems?
It is looking to me like the frame is coming up to meet the roof, do thoes out riggers take all the weight of the walls and ceiling?

You're going to drive yourself crazy if you start going at these things with a straight edge and a level, just saying. Every time you move it or level it or pull it around a tight corner it's going to change. I am in no way defending poor quality materials or workmanship but if they were built to resist the forces you wouldn't be able to move it.

Hey.
Thanks. If thoes out riggers were the depth of the frame and thicker material might do a better job!!

I had a 2955rl. I couldn’t find any 2 surfaces that were on the same plain. Since I really like to eat I decided to level the stove and not worry about the rest of the camper.

I took mine back to the dealer after noticing the floors on both sides of the LR/Kitchen/DR slope down toward the wall under the driver side to where the curb side slide meets the floor. They watched the operation of the slides and said they thought it is was ok. They said that looked like needed to be that way to prevent the slides from rubbing the floor. While they were checking it, I took the same 4' level that I used in my trailer and checked most of the 5th wheels on the lot (Montana, Grand Design, Chapparel, and others) and just about all had the same slope. I noticed it on our's the first time we used it. And after a year, it doesn't seem to be getting any worse. So I guess it's not a problem. But I'm going to try to get a Montana tech to look at it at the Rally.

I forgot to say the it also the floor slopes on the curb side to where the floor meets the slide.

Personally, I wouldn't worry about what you are seeing. Good observations but unless you see any significant changes to those issues, just use it.

My thoughts too. It doesn't seem to be affecting anything, and doesn't appear to be getting any worse. But will still try to get it looked at while at the Rally just in case.

I see other frames of RV have the same outriggers like our Keystone. Has anyone ever contacted Keystone about the walls dropping down. I thing mine is getting worse.

I've seen outriggers on SOBs that are allowing the walls sag, but I've personally never seen it on a MT. I don't think yours looks bad. Keep an eye on it to see if gets worse.
