    Galvanized Trailers

    I am thinking about getting a single trailer and a local trailer manufacturer up here is selling non painted galvanized trailers. I also notice that the Yacht Club trailers are galvanized, but are painted. What are the advantages of both? The prices will be comparable.

    as far as I know, paint on top of galvanizing is a no-no. the plain old galvanized will last the longest. I think the yacht clubs are either painted -or- galvanized. can't be both.

    There are some companies powercoating galvanized but I would think this would be an option on the high end brands.
    IMO, other than looks, paint on top of galvanized is a waste of money.
    Galvanized will out last a non-galvanized trailer, period.

    the bunk/axle/wheels/hardware will rot off before the galvanized trailer parts do. I loves me some galvanized trailers.

    I have an Easy hauler trailer. same as the northtrail and yacht club. there not galvanized even though alot call it that, there zink coated. galv is the best. New painted trailer look better now but in 10 years the galv will look better then the painted one.
