I think that was the reason for my husband not getting a chrome bumper on his 78 Chevy pickup along time ago (thought it is probably still running/New cab). A can of white Rustoleum and good as new except for the dent the bolder made running into the bumper. Got to use the saftey break on those things.

We had an 88 Sunline, the frame and window frames were brown. The skin was beige which was common at that time. The brown chalked out quickly.

I can hardly stop laughing at myself. I was going to paint the trailer silver to match my TV and was thinking about painting the frame some funny colour and only today I noticed that that... the way to colour match will be to paint the frame... black because my TV has black finished bottom edge!

Hi: Andrew GPSMapNut...Have you ever thought about the pain of tripping over a black trailer tongue on a midnite "TRIP" to the LOO!!! Maybe silver is a better choice!!!

Late coming in here but I was told that they are painted black because black tubing dries out faster. Don't know if that is true or not!

I just heard that our new wheel cover comes next week. Here it is as completed and the backside of the trailer with the Cabela cover it will replace.
