I own a 2015 rpod 178. I follow a California couple on YouTube who have a 2015 rpod 177. They recently reported that the one-piece fiberglass that extends from the front to the back of the trailer had separated from the sides at the bottom front. They reported that 22 other rpodders had reported the same thing happening to their trailers. Here is the video

After seeing this, I am now worried that this could happen to my trailer as well. Has anyone else had this problem?

That has happened a few times, not a difficult fix. In general, the underlying problem is moisture gets in and softens the wood the screws go into, OR, just rough roads and/or over torque on the screws. To repair it, you remove the screws push/pull the parts back into place, put in new slightly larger screws, button up tight.

almost all structural issues with a camper can be prevented by making sure that water is kept out and the trailer isn't loaded over weight.
