I love my Camper…let me say that first. I am not posting this to whine nor complain. This post is to share information and to gather any available information as to if my discovery is common or not. I just noticed rust on nearly every GFC attachment. See pics. I realize this is not a major issue now, but am just surprised and concerned this is going to be an on-going and possibly growing issue. The beef bars were installed prior to delivery and I attached the mounts soon after arriving home. The inside mounts are also rusting from the open tube (no pics of that). No rust on the painted space frame, which I have heard of too.
V1 for Gladiator. # 986
Home is Western NC
Ready in late November 2020
Installed in Late Jan 2021
Aside from being stored outside in Mt for the couple months, the camper has not been in harsh conditions (it was at the NC coast for a week last week), parked on the second row from the beach.
It is stored in a garage when not being driven.
