And yet more option questions

I'm told I can get the same chip guard on my 5.0 as is used on the front of the trailer front storage boxes, can someone describe it please?

This one may or may not be possible. I've read where one or 2 folks have gone with flush/recessed pedestal table leg mounts, any idea if they are more or less wobbly then the standard raised ones?

Rhino lining is what they use on the boxes can't speak to the table legs.

Also note that spraying the Rhino Lining on the front of the trailer ( up to the belt line ) cost about $500 and the storage box which came along later was $700 sprayed with the same stuff ( I think ). Owners opted for the box.

It's the 5.0 so the box is not an option, but for $500 I'll hold off till it gets chipped. Hadn't seen a price on it.

Bob, I found the front boxes are really tough... I mean really rough. I'm going to do as you... wait, then will probably apply a DIY Grizzly Grip Truck Bed Liner coating for bed liners, camper top, pick up truck

I've been driving a lot of gravel roads with Toad for five years. I've got the vinyl gravel guards. They don't cover a lot of the front and I sometimes forget them at home.
I don't have any plans to coat the front of the trailer any time soon. Have a few small chips camouflaged by the squished bugs.

3m Makes the clear mask material used on vehicles for rock protection and you can install it yourself. It is not that costly and comes in many sizes etc

We put that 3M film on the front of our 2005 Subaru when it was new and the paint is still perfect.
I asked Tammy if they'd ever used it on a trailer and she said no, just the bed liner.
I got a roll of the film planning to install it on the front of our new 21, but I ended up deciding on the storage box. I'll probably use it in the wheel wells.

I note that 3M recommends you use an installer, not DIY and that the warranty on the product isn't valid if you DIY.

Isn't it Line-X Escape uses? Though the Rhino liner has improved over the years, the Line-X is better known for its toughness.
