Trailer Rehab

Time for the trailer to go to rehab....it said no, no, no.....

Anyway, got it apart on Friday and blasted/primed over the weekend. Off to the painter tomorrow. I had to get the fender frame welds touched up.

Do not paint, or powder coat this type of trailer after all this effort. Take the axel off and get it hot dipped galvanized. If, at any point this gets into salt or brackish water it WILL rot from the inside out. I learned the hard way on my 93. After maybe 150 hrs in brackish water the trailer disintigrated, dispite my best efforts at rinsing it 30 minutes after each use. Even if all it sees is fresh water the tube just behind the axel will go, eventually.

I think this is what he is suggesting rather then paint.

+1 - Dave knows what he's talking about. Same thing happened to my GFs 205 trailer.

I understand now. I interpreted the initial post as recommending to get the axle galvanized, when what he meant to say was get the trailer galvanized after removing the axle.

One bunk down...3 to go.

I replaced the wood and have installed the carriage bolts per the MTAJPA method in the thread below:

Carpet added...

I truly hate carpeting bunks. There is a case of beer or beverages if choice available if anyone wants to do the other 3 for me!
