View Full Version : All over Red Rover

Just thought I'd post a note to say I've finally found a trailer for my 16 foot Haines.

Just wanted to say thanks to everyone for the advice, leads, tips and general all round help - but you can search no longer.

For the record - found a 16 footer with brakes that had been sitting in a garage for the last 12 years on an old plywood jet boat. The guy was throwing the boat away because it has rotted away.

Trailer is spic and span with just a couple of minor midifications needed and all for the right price.

PS I'm thinking of painting the thing - any advice.

It's obviously an older type trailer and the gal is pretty rough to the touch, not smooth like new trailers.

I was think of coating it in cold gal - just for the hell of it - or should I undercoat it and then give it a flashy new paint job.

Any thoughts?
