Dents, Scratches & Damage: This trailer has some very small dents and dings and a few small patches. The bottom radius, which goes from the side to the bottom of the trailer is bad and is needing replaced. This trailers exterior does have some steel parts so the exterior was painted silver. The corner radiuses, rub rails, door jambs, and some window jambs are steel but all the exterior skin is aluminum. I have seen where people paint the steel parts dark gray then polish the aluminum and it really looks nice.
