Autocruise plastic floor locker frames breaking


Recommended Posts

Seems like every Autocruise motorhome that uses the fragile plastic floor locker frame has problems with cracking and breaking,

Very surprising that anyone expected a 1mm thick plastic frame that people walk on will survive.

Plastic replacements are available at a cost of around £95,but am unsure of their durability.

Would any Autocruise owners be interested in billet aluminium frames?

They would be massively stronger and fit easily.

The downside is that a pair,ie both frames to replace existing, probably broken hatch frames will be £180.

The cost of the billet aluminium and the machining costs account for the cost.

Would like to see if there is enough interest to continue this project;

Please message me on whatsapp on 07774 895300 or via this forum,

Try an Aluminium casting company.

Depending on the damage to the plastic frames, is. may be possible to use them to create the pattern.

Using a billet creates more waste than used in the finished frame, especially if the inner frame has an overlap with the outer.

Aluminium has a low melting point but the problem of a DIY solution would be obtaining casting sand.
