Default Bulging trailer sides

Hey HiLo family!
We have 1993 19' trailer that is getting wide in the middle. Not unlike many of us right!

So... What can be done? The sides are bulged out at least 2". Another symptom is the counter area including the sink and stove are sloped towards the sides, like they are attached to the wall which is bulging out.

Is this common? A fatal issue?

Thanks in advance for your comments...
Dan

Welcome to the forum. Sounds like water damage to me. Do a search for water damage and you'll see how many member did extensive repairs to take care of the issue.

Thanks for the welcome! Our trailer's sides are bulged around the top where there is a steel frame from my understanding. I'll look at water as a possibility, but the lower section is protected from any water intrusion.

Any other reason the sides would bulge out in the middle?

I wish that there was another reason that I could come up with but.......

I'm afraid that water intrusion is about it, find and address that before doing anything else.
