    Did you check when the trailer was actually made? When i got mine it was only made a few days before i bought it or something like that.

    OP, in your first post you said there's rust everywhere, the paint is chipping and bubbling. All you've shown pics of is what looks like water spots. Where's the rust everywhere and the chipping and bubbling paint?

    Are you sure this isn't a simple case of buyer's remorse?

    Not automotive wax

    Cleaner wax. Or a polish. You need something slightly abrasive.

    I used to detail cars professionally

    So no inspection on delivery? No warranty? BT is rarely complained about. PPG paints has even given them high praise and awards. I just don't see anybody paying top dollar for a trailer and not even doing a walk around prior to leaving the lot.

    Funny that's one of the ways people remove hard water spots. At least they used to that's an old method

    Better was your trailer though acetone sucks everything out of the paint/clear coat.

    I have a 13 year old big tex trailer. I had a u bolt break once, that was bad. Other than that it's been trouble free. Have done brakes, bearings, lights etc of course. I'm actually thinking about doing a little overhaul this winter and then keeping it in service for another 5-10 years.
