Just have to go back and straighten the chairs.
At least there are no florescent orange chocks visible ( the bane of good trailer photography ).

Sheesh, I wonder if I can paint mine. One more thing to think about.

Good point though.

I've thought of painting them brown, but then I'd lose them.
Depending on your photo-processing software, you can just select the offending items and remove the color ( Hue and Saturation ) and make them disappear that way.

Just paint the sides; leave the treads orange. Then when you roll off, you can see them.
Oh, and Krylon Fusion spray paint is the stuff that sticks to plastic (and sun glasses, and fingers, ...)

Just go down the your local tractor/farm supply store and buy the black rubber chocks, they do a much better job than the plastic ones.

Loving this thread since I pick up my 17B on Monday and then will load up my stuff from my son's house in Portland and head to the coast. We're following the coast as long as we can and then going to Napa. Lots of great ideas for places to go.

My late husband had a reputation for teasing our kids and their friends. We vacationed on the Washington and Oregon coasts several times. The kids were of the age that they were mostly interested in video games and CD players and headphones on a trip.

As we approached Cape Disappointment, he informed them that our next destination was a place with go-carts, video games and Nutella. When we got there, they jumped out of the car and looked around puzzled by the lack of their kind of entertainment. It was then he told them the name of the place.

When we went there my wife told me it was going to be a nude beach.
