One mod on the Boler I have been toying with in my mind for awhile now is some sort of protection on the front end from rock chips. Ours has numerious chips in the GelCoat and our all alum. Featherlite horse trailer is the same way. Even with it been power coated which is a very tough finish it gets beat up.
Many people get 1/16"polished checker plate alum. panels mounted on the front of their horse trailers but that is not feasable on a Boler. All the travel trailers I have seen so far that have the ribbed black rubber mounted on them has not appealed to me as they never seem to fit the curves well without slicing them or the don't stay flat, they buckle in places beacuse the adhesive has let go. Beside white doen't show the dirt as bad.
What I have been considering is a white padded bra held on by dome snaps. Snap are not a problem in my view. After a trip the bra could be unsnapped, hose off any mud or dirt from the shell and bra, let it dry and remount it. Same idea as the bras on pickup trucks and vans.
People keep telling me "oh it will ruin your paint" Not true. We have leased 4 Chevy trucks in the last 12 years, all had bras and not one hurt the paint
. I always blast the junk out from under them in the car wash.
So I am wondering if any one else has addressed this problem. I don't want to keep filling chips and repainting the front end.
