The bumper on your trailer now is from Balrgn's 1973 Argosy 26 he was parting out several years ago. The pop rivets are replacements for the pop rivets that were on the cover when we got the trailer. I did move the camloc mounts slightly to take advantage of somewhat better aluminum in the new locations.
As always, there are stories behind many "normal" things, and the bumper is one of them. Andre sold me the bumper, boxed it up, and sent it via UPS from his home in new Hampshire to our home in Florida. He got a bill from UPS after I had gotten the bumper, and installed it. The bill was for about $20 more than he charged me for the bumper and shipping combined. If nothing else, it is a study in shipping costs.
