Well she's all ready to be torn down so that some or all of the parts can be powder coated. This trailer could be polished quite easily if someone wanted to spend the time. There are very few imperfections in the tub itself. The tailgate would need a little sanding to remove some marks from machining but that's all.













Thanks for looking

Love it all but the rear, think I know what to order when I'm ready. Nice work.

I love it! It's not mine but I think the ribs underneath would have been well worth the extra work. Beautiful trailer.

I got the parts for this one back from coating today so I've spent the last few hours putting things back together. It has found a home and will be polished this winter. I spent some time and machined the backside of the tailgate out so that a removable panel could be installed. I think this will make polishing much easier! We also elected to install a set of my walking beams for some added stability.

One thing at a time, but one of these is definitely on my list. Have a picture saved on my phone of one similar to this.

Hey Reg,

have you ever thought about moving the tailgate hinges forward for a high lift tailgate? Just a thought.
