I noticed it had a small leak from the roof and a small piece of the metal frame that the trim attached to was bent. Has anyone used the rustoleum bed liner kit?

I bought an 8.5x20 from them last spring and got all the upgrades - 5200 lb axles, led exterior lights, electrical package, extra ramp door on side, spare wheel, etc. I have been pleased with it. The tires wore out super quick as mentioned, and the caulk came off in a few spots. I built shelves in the v nose and I'm very happy with how they turned out.

For those complaining about their tires wearing out quickly, did you upgrade to Radials?

Here's one pic. Tried to take advantage of the v nose. Just take plywood, mark the correct angles and cut, and use 2x4's to brace. I end up just using the front shelves for storage.

Here's a view from the back. Obviously, you want your most used tools to be the easiest to access. Trimmers and blowers at the very back. Sprayers and ladder over the wheels wells. There's 2 walk behinds in there, one is just inside the side door for easy access there. I use the walker 80% of the time and the pro-line 18% of the time. The 42" Dixon gets used mostly in back yards that are too tight for a 48" deck.

The sales guy I talked to didn't let me know about upgrading to radials or else I would have, the replacement tires I used are holding very well.

Nice work Precision! I have a single shelf almost identical to yours in the v-nose of my trailer. I use it for a work surface for writing out spray records and holding some of my supplies. I see you are using what looks like screw-in hooks to hold your trimmers. Have you had any issues with them bending and allowing the trimmers to move/bounce around?

Thanks. I did have one screw in hook break on me, but I blame it on the fact that I had bent it. Other than that they have held up great. I bought some heavy duty hooks for the blowers that cost 1.67 after one of the $8 "heavy duty" hooks I bought broke.
