Man that's a good looking set up. I have a saltwater series boat with a painted trailer as well. My boat is used in a fresh water river that flows out to a bay but I'm about 10 miles from the outlet and on occasion can get kinda brackish water but its mostly fresh water. My boat is on a hoist and I used the trailer three times last year and the paint on both of my fenders bubbled and started peeling. I had a Malibu for 7 years prior to my X45 and that trailer never had a speck of rust on it and I used it a lot more that I use this one. Good luck trying to get it warrantied, it took my dealer a lot to get these things covered. MC had a bad year in 2012.

Wow, great looking setup. The X-30 makes your Hummer looks small

The trailer for my Malibu 23xti rusted heavily fro the inside out however we were not very good with rinsing it in the beginning. I'm not too worried about the MC tailer. If it happens, it happens. The fenders on the MC trailer are fiberglass.

Man you must turn some heads when your rolling down the street with that killer combo! Cool Hummer H1 and X-30
