Am I the only one who likes these trailers better without the decals? Yours is looking good!

Looks absolutely amazing. You mentioned you painted it; is the paint a special product that goes over the gel coat or is it another layer of gel coat? I am trying to decide what to do with outside of mine and looking for ideas. I was thinking about just having the area where the stripes used to be repainted with the original orange color.

It's actually a marine type paint and primer meant for fibreglass boats. International paint, if my memory serves me right.

Looks better when it's near the ocean

Just got back from a trip to PEI. Don't let the pictures fool you. We did not go on the ferry. (There 2 hrs early and 3rd in line, but last on their priority list)

Had a great time at twin shores campground.... Highly Recommended!
