Outside siding issues

The exterior side walls of the coach are separating from the cargo bay floors causing a gap that opens up to the outside. You can see the road thru a crack about 1/2 to one inch in places. Never seen this happen before in any RV Iíve owned. Screws seem to be missing in many places donít know how unless vibration from driving. Anyone else see anything like that before. What can be done to fix it??

Basically when you open the cargo door and look in there is a gap between the outer wall and the start if the cargo flooring that is open to the outside.

Sounds like too much weight is pulling it loose at the top front of the cargo bay compartment (if its plastic like mine). Look up at the very top. Mine has a 90 degree ledge that laps over the flooring, holding it in place and giving it downward strength. This may have pulled loose (staples rusted) and the overlap "lip" is pulling loose, causing the front of the bay to dip down. Or, no screws or staples were placed in the top of that horizontal lip to begin with.
