I bought my trailer used and it appears the plastic corrugation is sagging over the axles. Perhaps some repairs were done in the past. I want to run something across the underside of the frame to keep this supported. I have looked at some aluminum pieces, angle iron, and various other pipes and random items from the big box store! Any suggestions?

Big box is big bucks! Look for industrial metal supply. If you choose to do this run front to back. I would be happy with 1"alu angle. Really though I would be happy leaving it alone. Most of the time that is one location that has no lateral frame, well in a lot of cases. If wind can't get under the plastic it will not likely fail.

One thing I was doing was to look for alternative items to use. For example, electrical items such as emt tubing and unistrut are dirt cheap because so much is used. I found a W shaped floor track for prefab walls that was very cheap too. I will look for a metal supplier too. I have to get under there and take a closer look than I have so far. Thanks for your suggestions!
