End Caps attaching to frame

Recommended Posts

Have a 2006 Coachman Cross Country SE, and I noticed that the rail that the storage compartment doors hang from is pulling away toward the back of the coach.  Further investigation revealed that where the rail meets the end cap, there is some separation, and that the lower screws of the end cap are also pulling way.  Looking more, it appears that the wooden strip that the end cap screws into has rotted out about halfway down.

Any suggestions on what type of material should be used to replace that strip?  It looks like it screws into a metal bar, and the end cap/rail screw into the wood.

Guidance/suggestions are appreciated.

Without a lot of pictures, very difficult for us to do an "arm chair" estimate.

Clearly, rotted wood will have to be replaced (and hopefully encapsulated to protect it in the future).

Any metal components that have sagged, welds broken, etc will have to be reworked.

On a 14 year old coach this could range from a large do it yourself project to totaling the coach.
