    Wall Sag

    I've fixed a few I have jacked the trailers up and supported the trailer on the walls Used 4X4s along bottom of walls with jack stands at each end and bottle jacks in middle for extra support Reinforced existing out riggers and added as needed Then cross bracing between frame rails at out rigger location Picture your building a truss under the bottom of trailer With trailer supported take a straight edge across the floor inside I will raise the floor at the walls 1/8" to 3/16" higher than the center ( Preload Reverse sag ) I'll use a couple of floor jacks on the frame to get the dimension Just supporting the walls with out frame supported yet the most I've gotten is 3/8" reverse sag Draw a picture of your trailer upside down a cut in half view add truss across it The flip it over It will make sense If you have dry rot in the walls that will cause additional wall sag

    Door hinges

    Thanks Grease Monkey. As above from Mcmaster carr I've used the barrel hinges Also have made them from round stock and tubing. I don't have any pictures of them One thing make them adjustable Don't weld them solid. They will sag in time from car twisting and ware. One other option use the hidden hinges that are used on Hot Rods.
