BUY AN ECLIPSE AND TAKE YOUR CHANCES See below. They did NOTHING

I recently experienced tires rubbing on inside of fender wells during turns. Upon checking alignment, and further inspection, cracks in the frame were found in the axle area particularly above each of the spring hangers.
See attached photo files.

This trailer has never been subjected to any type of overload condition, nor even near the specified load carrying capacity, having hauled only one DRZ 400 motorcycle. Failure such as this is completely inexcusable and indicative of frame sizing grossly under capacity for the unit and/or manufactured from completely substandard steel. My understanding is that the frame supplier is Lippert Industries but still Eclipse Manufacturing has responsibility for assuring nothing but correct and quality materials are used in manufacture of its products.

This same problem with Eclipse unit(s) has occurred before but only discovered following catastrophic failure. A major safety hazard! This failure has been reported to NHTSA even though the defect was found before a disaster occurred.
