Wildwood Ultra Lite Travel Trailer Floor Is Sagging

by Anonymous

2010 Ultra Lite Travel Trailer Wildwood floor sags after I-Beam frame.

ANSWER: Thanks for submitting your question on our Ask An RV Question Page.

With the limited information you have provided me I have no way of telling you why the floor on your Travel Trailer is sagging. The problem could be caused by water damage to the floor or could even be a manufacturer’s defect.

Considering how new this travel trailer is you should not have a sagging floor. Whether your Travel Trailer is still under warranty or not I would suggest that you contact the RV Dealer that sold it to you and setup an appointment to have them take a look at it and determine what the problem is.

If the dealer is no longer in business or if you feel that they are not being helpful in fixing the problem, then I suggest that you contact Forest River Incorporated the manufacturer of your Travel Trailer. You can call Forest River at 574-389-4600.

I would also be interested to hear from any other RVers that have this brand trailer to find out if they are experiencing the same problem as you are.

Please leave a comment on this page and let us know what you find out.

2010 Wildwood Ultra Lite
by: Anonymous

We too have the same issue with our 2010 XL-Lite Wildwood. We started to notice it last fall when we winterized it. But over the summer this year, it gradually got worse and worse and now the whole floor is affected. Some spots are sunken while other areas are heaved. I just contacted our dealer today and they referred me to Forest River direct. I have left a message with a Forest River rep and am anxious to hear how this can be resolved.

we gave a sagging floor! No water damage visible. We want to buy a new travel trailer but this issue needs fixing. We bought this unit new. Wonder if Firest River would help us even though it is now 2015?

2010 18bhxl owner here
by: Anonymous

I purchased mine from the 2nd owner. Soft spot inside the door, which engulfed the entire front floor within a 6 months. We tore out the sofa and pulled back the vinyl and were greeted with black mold and a OSB floor that was completely rotted. When removing the sofa base, the screws into the wall were also rusted. I contact Forest River via email with a nice but strongly worded email about the damage.

They ran my vin# and agreed to repair it but charged me a 'deductible'. I asked for before and after photos (insurance wanted this) and the water was coming in from both front corners at the roof. There was black mold in the walls and studs. They completely replaced the floor and made it a 2x2 floor with tongue/grove plywood. They also completely replaced the front framing as well as other fit/finish repairs. They went above and beyond and stood by their product. I'm still mad about the deductible, but my trailer is as good as new.

2010 Wildwood 17 EXL -soft floor
by: Linda Knqpp

I had the same issue with my Forest River and when finally figured out how to contact the factory found out they had a bad run when it was constructed. Warranty was expired but they replaced the entire floor at no cost to me! Results were awesome! Worst thing was driving it to Goshen IN in a level 3 snow emergency.. Dealers do not know how to address this problem. You have to keep pushing until you reach the factory.

if you are having this problem -- file a complaint with NTSB
by: Anonymous

Anybody having this issue should file a complaint with the NTSB.

The more complaints they receive on this issue, the more likely the issue will become a recall...

2011 bh-xlite sagging floor
by: mac

We also purchased a 2011 x-lite camper. Leaked not sure where the water came in. We had it two years the warranty had just run out.The entire floor needs to be replaced. I called forest River and they gave me $1500 which wasn't even close to the cost of replacing it. Im trying to sell it as is can't even get $4500 for it. I took a big loss on it I would never buy a forest river product again.

2010 wildwood 19xlt has major sag in floor between door and bed. Barely 3 years old and we also noticed what looks like roof leak. Will contact dealer next week when home from trip. At this point we feel like getting rid of it as it will not last long from what we can see. Very poorly built unit.

Sagging Floor on Wildwood 17EXL
by: Anonymous

I had the same problem with my 2010 Wildwood 17EXL floor. It started sagging near the shower and upon further examination, the floor sagged into the kitchen as well. I took it to a dealer I didn't buy the trailer from who in turn contacted Forest River. Forest River came and picked up the trailer, removed all of the flooring and fixed everything for me, including items that I didn't realize needed fixing (e.g., installing gutter extensions outside at all four corners, replacing the tires, etc.). They are a great company to work with!

Basically, we have a brand new trailer at this point and continue to love it.

Manufacturing defect
by: Anonymous

Hi folks, I had the same problem with my 2010 Wildwood 17exl. After much haggling I sent it back to Forest River, they stated that the underbelly was not properly wrapped during the manufacturing process.

Their solution was to replace the floor and any damaged wood.

Hope this helps.

Just a quick follow up on my 2011 28bhxl. I contacted forest river about my problem and they agreed to replace my floor. They offered me a discount on a new, more expensive trailer so I took that deal and traded my old(2011) 28bhxl. I was satisfied with the deal a got in the end. my advise to anyone with any problems would be to contact forest river themselves even if the dealer made you an offer. One more thing , never except the first thing they offer because there is always something a little extra to gain from a little fight. lol

2011 28bhxl
by: Anonymous

i have a wildwood 28bh x-lite. it has the same problem. the floor is saging and upon further inspection the floor is very wet. the floor is made from press wood not plywood and after getting wet it has swollen. the beams are also too far apart for the type of material used(press wood). my warranty is out by only a couple of weeks and the response from my dealer is not that impressive.
