I'm pretty sure you'll need fresh coat of paint on the inside by the end of the season. Check to see if they cover that under warrenty because i didnt ask for mine. Good Luck with it! Here's a link to my dump with the walls and loader setup.
Yes, I went with the Rascal- the guy said he hardly sells any of the other LP trailers because ALL of the components on the Rascal and the LP trailers are IDENTICAL (6x10 10K). The ONLY difference is having one less stake pocket, and the fenders and lights are different. With the $$$ I saved by buying the Rascal, I can make my sides, and still have $400 left over. Plus, it will really only see use 3-4 months out of the year as the rest of the time I'm away at school. It looks VERY heavy duty built to me- I think it will suit me well!
