Exclamation Rusted trailer on borrowed time

The trailer on my 2005 X2 didn't last quite as long as I had expected. I picked up the boat last year and the photo explains the rest. Luckily, the boat was sitting still when the frame busted. New trailer time! I knew the boat was used in brackish water for a period of time but wasn't focused much on the trailer condition...next time around I'll know better.

If you're rusting, go out there and hit your trailer with a hammer and hope to hear a "ping" and not a "thud."

Man! I wouldn't want that coming apart on me at 70 mph heading down the freeway with a boat on top.
