Yep I am hopeful. I've seen pictures of Egbert's interior and it is gorgeous!

It surely beats a "crawl under" to do the work on the underside of the trailer!
Looks like just a regular 4 post hydraulic lift. They're everywhere.

I was told the foam tank spray was subcontracted out by ETI but that they do paint it black upon return, perhaps that is what they are doing.

I don't think that's it ===as we did not order the foam.

That may have been true but I think they do their own now. After Osooyoos last year drove to ETI to have them foam the trailer. It only moved as far as to the backside of the shop. And they paint the foam with the same paint as the frame Reace told me.

Speaking of paint on the frame, does anyone know what the paint they use on the frame? Nice to know for TouchUp purposes.
