Default New owner 2807C

Just picked up our "new" Hi Lo and so far, love it. Planning on going to Ohio this summer from Naples, Fl and then to California this winter. Have been reading a lot of the maintenance items on the forum and have got a lot accomplished. Hope to post some helpful tips when I really get going. Has anyone tried using Polyurethane caulk for the tops and windows. I have had really good luck with it on other items, never gets hard and stays flexible and acts like an adhesive. Also plan to make solar panels and led lights for the inside of the trailer, maybe sell a few solar panels to make some gas money. lol
Happy Camping
Bob

Welcome aboard, Bob. Poke around the site and you'll find all sorts of helpful tips. Any questions you may have will be answered. There are a lot of experienced owners here. If you do a search, there are at least six posts on polyurethane. I hope one of them may answer your question.

Hey - Bienvenidos, Bob!

You're going to love it. Keep us updated on how it's going - and post a few pics of the new rig. We're all anxious to see it.

Default Welcome to the forum

Good to hear you have gotten alot of good guidance/maintenance information from the forum.. Good to have another classic owner on board. you will find the classic model to be very sturdy and of good quality. Having solar panels is a great thing to have and also LED lights. Everything that breaks on a HiLo is fixible. I have a 90 HiLo classic. Take care Sam.

Welcome to the Hi-lo forum, I'm sure you'll enjoy your "new" trailer. I'm hooked, I've had mine for about 7 years and enjoy every time we can take it out.
The only brand of polyurethane caulk I use is Sikaflex 1a, it comes in different colors including white or tan and holds up very well to UV rays. I've used other brands including DAP and had to redo the caulk joint within a year.

Hey Les - where do you find this caulk? Online? Big Orange box stores?

I get Sikaflex 1a at a local high end building supply company( not the big orange store). For the best price on the internet, look at Amazon.com.
