i got the trailer sand blasted as the rust was getting out of hand and I was going to just get it sprayed with a 2 part epoxy primer tinted to match my old 40 series, but then they accidentally tinted a top coat and talked me into spraying it on top. anyway, with the new bolts it looked so bling I spray painted the taillights to match...

i will enjoy it while it lasts, but the top coat is still a tractor paint made for durability not looks so it will dull out over time.

anyone think this will start a trend in m101 trailer colour choices :grinpimp:

Trey pimp. We been trying to figure out what color to paint our M116. My daughter wants red. My wife says I can't leave it as camo unless she gets to paint little pink flowers over it. So far we've been able to compromise on black or desert tan.

I never knew it could be so complicated. :rolleyes:

so is that bar / tent set up actually strong enough for two people?

so far, i have two seasons and over 5000 miles towed with that tent/bar set up on it. i looked when it was sandblasted and couldn't see any cracks in the siderails.

It will easily support 2 adults and 2 kids.

another 2000 miles or so and it still works great.
