Our Morris Mule Trailer has traveled over 8,000 miles (6,000+ on the Pacific Northwest trip alone). A good bit of that travel has been off-pavement. Most of the forward facing metal, especially the front of the cargo deck and the fenders, have loads of chipped paint. Heavy use of the trailer bed has removed a lot of paint there as well.

To better protect the metal of these areas we've decided to paint them with a bedliner material - Herculiner.

Here's a list of the products used in the complete makeover...
