    I have a new 5'x10' trailer and have been using for the past 6 months and it's starting to get the usual wear and tear. But I was wondering what you all do when rock chips, scratches, and etc. happen if you just let it go or cover them up with paint. No snow or salt to deal with here, even rain is very very scarse. What should I do because I have alot.

    I have heard of people having their trailers "Rhino-lined"...the truck bed coating......never seen one...but I think I like the idea...

    just grab a rattle can and patch it now and then. use a metal brush to clean out any dirt/sand/loose rust.

    I put a piece of plexi-glass on the front of the trailor where my truck throws the rocks. Took care of about 90% of the problem

    olderthandirt do you have an enclosed trailer? I think I would need a whole lot of plexi glass for my open trailer.
