    Maybe GFC should buy back the broken ones?

    @wileydavis I have recently been looking into reading up on this issue you guys were having on Tacoma forums as well as your own GFC forum about the hinge breaking. I do know that you came up with a new hinge system that is no longer utilizing the rivet style doors and now only the weather stripping. How is that system working out? It looks like a better system overall. I wanted to ask a question/make a suggestion. Would it be easier for those that already have this issue to be able to swap out their old style hinges and doors for these newer style? It may be cost effective to those that are stilling waiting for theirs to be fixed and it could be easier on you as a company knowing they have the latest that you are currently using on your current campers. Would appreciate your feed back

    Unlikely that you will receive a response here, they have mostly abandoned this forum for their own. Reach out to Mike over there as he is the one tracking warranty repairs.

    It's DLX son!
    Had a small crack start on my rear hinge, but it's stayed the same for months now. Supposedly the GFC mobile repair folks will be coming through my area in about a month so I'll have them reseal and replace the hinges all around, as well as my front and rear tubes that puke rust.

    Keeping my fingers crossed that it addresses the only issues I've had. Still really like the design and there isn't anything else out there that would work as well for me.

    Awaiting mobile repair still. At least we have tentative dates now.

    No new issues at least.

    Same old issues are getting really annoying.

    Anyone try driving with the tailgate down? Need to haul something long and wondering if it is safe to do this.

    I used mine like this on a 6 hour jaunt, no issues. I bungeed down the rear door so it wouldn’t move around. Nothing happened. Not sure what kind of concern you would have? Though I guess rear doors have not been reliable as of late.

    Yeah mostly concerned about stressing the hinges but probably being a little too cautious. Thanks!
