There was no indication that anything in my Kiwi had settled. I was looking to stabilize what I had.
With any noticed settling I would definitely jack it up into position because the essentially cantilevered supports I suggest probably don't have enough leverage to work against a settled wall to move things up. They should work to hold position once everything is back up in place.
Additional Unistrut channel could easily be added if you think it would help or feel it is necessary. I do try to keep weight in mind with adding structure, or anything else for that matter, to a trailer.
This is a "fix", not a proper restoration. The alternative of tearing the floor and wall(s) out for an OEM type repair was not worth the time or effort for me on my 2001 trailer with limited resale value. My goal was to restore it to reasonable use. Everything I did is working very well. We have enjoyed using the trailer as have all our invited guests.
