We don't usually talk politics here, but maybe it's wanting to have its student loan forgiven.

Oh.

Is one end of the rear bumper higher than the other, or do the walls appear to be leaning independently from that? In the wheel wells, is the clearance above the tire the same on both sides, or different? In order to help, we need as much information as possible. Pictures are always good.

Hi,

As Tinstaafl stated, we need more info to better help in these technical situations. Start with answering Tin's questions.

I'll add some more info/questions.

First, we need to confirm the understanding of the left and right sides of the camper, as not everyone knows this. A camper is a vehicle in the eyes of the BMV or DMV, pending your state, and as such, these meanings on a camper for left and right follow an auto. Here is the camper version.

The left side of the camper = driver side, non-door side, or street side

The right side of the camper = passenger side, door side, or curb side.

Left and right are as you are inside the camper, looking out the front just like in an auto.

More questions,

1. What year camper? We understand the model is a T-1950. The trailer frames differ depending on the year of the camper.

2. Pictures help a lot in these cases. Could you try to take pictures of these areas and post them? I will explain how to post photos in the next reply if you do not know how.

Take a picture of:

A. Looking straight at the back of the camper. We need to see the back wall from the ground to the roof and the left side to the right side.

B. Look under the camper in the space between the two tires on the left side. From that view down close to the ground, put the camera between the tires and take a picture of the back side of the right-hand tires, showing the trailer suspension. We need to see the right-side front and rear tires and everything between the tires in the picture. Use the flash as needed so we can see some good detail.

C. Repeat item B, but take a picture of the left-side suspension at the right side of the camper.

To help you understand what we need to see in items B & C, here is a picture of a 2004 T1950 with upgraded suspension during a restoration
project. Your pictures B & C want to capture all the same things on your camper.

This picture was taken from the left side down, almost at the ground between the tires, looking at the right side of the camper.


Heavily worn trailer suspension can break/fail and allow one side of the camper to drop down. This may or may not be your issue, but it is a good place to start. If the suspension shows as intact, then we can ask more questions.

I hope this helps.

John

There are three ways to add pics.

1. Upload pics to a specific post, attaching them at the end of the post.

2. Linking them in from a public viewable web photo hosting service you have.

See here for 1 and 2 https://www.sunlineclub.com/forums/f...html#post86041

3. You can upload pics to the forum in your own personal photo album. Then link them to anywhere in the text of a post. See here on how to create an album. https://www.sunlineclub.com/forums/f...html#post87945

If you still get stuck, let us know. Pic's go a long way in helping show things you are working on, and we really like seeing Sunline pics!

Hope this helps

John

Sometimes a spring shackle can flip on a severe bump and be upside down, raising that side of the trailer.

We have a 2007 T2075 the kids use for a camper and is our second camper. We decided to shake it out last fall and take it from Michigan to Florida. In Georgia, I noticed when we went to stop for the night that the drivers side was lower than the passenger side. I found that two spring shackles were broken on the drivers side. We ended up getting to our destination and replaced all eight shackles. It was level after they were replaced. Just my two pennies added.
