Do black Enclosed trailers fade?

Im looking at used and new trailers and it seems like most of the used black ones that are several years old are kind of dulled out.

Is it just the type of skin used on the trailer or do black trailers fade in the sun?

Im on my second. Just ordered it last week. My last one was 3 yr. old and I almost waxed it. I believe it would help. But, even a little dulled they still look better than white.

Yes, but it will take a number of years. Most of the faded trailers I see at the track are usually at least 8-10 years old. Like mine...

4 seasons,

LV is our "home track" since we have been going for years and its about 15 minutes away. But we don't race there. My driver runs his family's car there and I help them out. We have raced at Malta, Glen Ridge, Devils Bowl, Fonda and Accord. Racing our car at Accord this season.
