Tran-Sport T-2675 Leaking

We have a toy hauler (Tran-Sport T-2675) and the "garage door" on the side has bubbled as if there is water inside of it. In addition, I found the floor mushy in two spots, so I tore the garage area a part and found water damage in the back wall and the floor. I have resealed everything, caulked and reinstalled every screw. I am still getting water in by the little vent door in the back and along the bottom of the large garage door.

I have another soft spot on the right side of the bed by the long cabinet. Have not even thought about tackling this one until I get the one in the back under control.

Any ideas, suggestions, thoughts?

Does anyone know where I could get another "garage door" made?

Thank you for any help.

Welcome to the group. Sorry that your first post is dealing with water damage. I think you might only be the 2nd member with a toy hauler. Since toy hauler owners are scarce on this site, it might be very helpful if you could post some photos of the damaged area. This site is chock full of very very talented, trouble shooting folks. I am sure some of the guys will be able to give you some ideas.

Hi Cclucci

Welcome to Sunline Owers Club. Sorry to hear about your water issue. I have gone thru one of them myself.

While I have walked thru a Transport at one of our Meet and Greet’s and weighed the tongue weight I’m not really fluent on the exact build of the Transport features.

However like Kitty stated, if you can post some pic’s we can help suggest some things that may work. One thing I have learned, all things are fixable on a camper. Just some take longer and cost more but they are all fixable.

Hope this helps

John

Hi cclucci,

I suspect the door is a laminated door, so you probably can't do a whole lot to rebuild it without having materials to redo the whole thing. At that point, I think you're better off just having a new one made.

I did some very special research for you and found out the manufacturer of the door was Nappanee Door. Nappanee door is now out of business, but they were bought out by Lippert Components (LCI), which is a big supplier to the RV industry:

RV Doors

The hinge system looks like the same or similar to what was used, so I'm thinking it's the same style.

The bad part is it would probably be in your best interest to go to Goshen to pick up the door because the cost of shipping it somewhere would be high. I suspect it would have to be crated and go truck freight, which it risks getting damaged. Plus not many truck freight companies will deliver to a private residence. I'm not sure where you are located, hopefully it won't be too far away.

Before you take the trailer to get the new door put on, search out a sign/graphics shop and ideally take it to them to see if they can match the color of the swoops on the door. I know they would love to template the pieces on the door there so they could make you some new ones, then all you'd have to do is stick them on when you get the door. Fortunately you don't need to worry about it having to cover a shadow from the old one or something. Take lots of pictures and a few measurements and this should go pretty easy.

I did find out the opening frame for the door was made locally to Sunline though. So be careful with that when you remove/install the doors.

Jon
