Protect Your Airstream's Structure with Our Rear End Separation Repair Services

Rear end separation in vintage Airstream trailers often occurs due to subfloor deterioration from age, water leaks, or dry rot. This leads to structural misalignment, causing the frame and shell to shift independently. If left unaddressed, the trailer's frame can crack behind the rear axle, compromising its overall stability.

We understand the importance of tackling this problem quickly and correctly. Our technicians thoroughly inspect your trailer’s rear end to evaluate the damage, including the subfloor, frame, and exterior skin. From there, we develop a tailored repair plan based on your trailer's condition and your goals. This plan may include reinforcing the frame, replacing subfloor sections, and installing new rear quarter panels.

We use only high-quality materials, reinforcing and painting the frame with POR-15 rust preventive enamel for lasting protection. We also reinstall or modernize the bathroom and install lightweight cabinetry or new holding tanks. With every repair, we ensure strong, long-lasting results, restoring your Airstream's structure to better-than-factory standards.

This is also a great opportunity to replace damaged rear quarter panel segments at a reduced cost, as they need to be removed to accomplish the rear end separation repair

Rear end separation is a common problem among vintage Airstream trailers, especially those with rear bathrooms. Our experienced technicians are experts in diagnosing and repairing this issue, safeguarding the structural integrity of your cherished trailer and ensuring it lasts for many more adventures.
