Actually NOT paint but instead I first painted the whole trailer with EASY POXY 2 part marine paint ,which shines like a mirror then I did a vinyl wrap from MOSSY OAKS GRAPHICS,com that mural on the front was actually meant to be a tailgate decal and the stripe was meant to be rocker guard decals the same type material was used inside on the walls and cabinets. The trailer is now 30ft long weighs 5460 lbs which is not bad since the factory sticker claimed 24ft. @ 4540lbs. and the tongue weight is around 600 it doent even think about squatting the suspension on my 1/2 ton RAM and I have not used a weight distribution hitch although I do have one I have towed it at speeds up to 89mph with one full size four wheeler on the front and it was as a relaxed drive as it is without the trailer,It can hold 2 full size four wheelers or golf cart though.The front axle was moved 4 inches forward and lwered the same which gave the trailer more road clearance. I want to upgrade the tires to 14 or 15 inch but the 15 would be tight width seems to be a problem with these HI Lo's. The tires on it now are stock sized 13 inch ten ply which are hard to find and we will have to see how long they can last before we switch,Im still tinkering around with changes to the interior.Right now IM in the process of building two sliding drawers for storage under both dinette benches which required a lot of rerouting factory heating ducts and some wiring I think it will be better then lifting cusions all the time though.
