Great Craftsmanship: NOT

This is the most recent failure on my 2 month old trailer. It is the bed.

Not really.There was a piece of corner molding stapled to it that fell off.

What holds the corners together?

This is the bed base correct?

Yes. There was a corner molding that came off.

I see staples in your pic. Do you? the frame looks to be pushed out from the inside. Too much stuff crammed under the bed?

It looks stapled together which isn't strong whatsoever. If it were me, I'd fix it myself with some glue and screws.

I think it's those strut/spring devices pushing it out when the bed comes down.

My thoughts exactly. I have some big pipe clamps that should fit that. The whole trailer needs to be screwed and glued <LOL>. I'm sure the dealer would just shoot some nails in there and split them.

I can see better in the last pic, I think you are right about the gas struts.
