I just went out and looked at my frame. Yours looks similar to mine. It is riveted further back with 8 rivets per side. Check those riveted connections. If they look good you should be fine. The A frame is acting as a long moment arm as it is not fully supported with the bad brace and is flexing. What appears to be happening is the front wall is bouncing on the broken brace. If this is the case you should be fine, but the bouncing on the front wall would bother me as it could cause additional internal damage
You're exactly correct with the A-Frame and the front wall bouncing. My fear was that the wood in the curve is broken and may have set the stage for further delimitation up higher if I interpreted the construction properly from the shop foreman.
I actually traded the trailer in last week for a new unit so unfortunately I won't know what the do to fix it, I'll try to inquire down the road to keep you posted.
I think the video made the problem look a lot worse than it is. Upon further inspection the frame is not actually flexing, it is just that broken brace on the front wall between the A-Frame.
