Got dents?

If so think about hiding them with some creative paint work and bed liner.

Ok, so it isnt the "right" fix, but it is cheap, effective, and depending on ones tastes, attractive.

I have plenty more...

I know very little about my trailers life before I got it, but I know it was used, and a lot.

Courtesy of the previous owner I have a nice dent on the right rear area of the trailer. While at Jackson Center I received a quote of $1700 to repair. Decided than and there to just live with it.

I don't have even one panel below my head that doesn't have some kind of dent, bend, or something.

We have renamed our airstream. "Hail on wheels" because of a huge hail storm. I am polishing it and it is showing the dents even more. I am choosing, wear it proudly.
