I got what Trailmaster Trailers called "Tundra" coating on my trailer and it's very similar to "Line X".....no chips or rust so for now for 5 years HOWEVER, it holds the dirt WAY more then regular paint. When I launch to fish Erie out of the "Catt" it picks up a LOT of dirt that flows in the creek 24/7/365. I have to power wash it and hand wash it to remove that dirt. Maybe if they had a wash down hose there and I could get it off before it dried on the way home it would come right off but I'm not sure. After 3 or 4 launches there my trailer starts to look gray instead of black.

I'm really excited for the Vault hubs. No maintenance needed for at least 5 years, possibly 10? Almost sounds too good to be true.

That's a bummer to hear. Hopefully the paint Heritage uses doesn't hold as much dirt. I guess it's worth the trade off if it prevents corrosion for a long time.

If you launch in relative clean/clear water you will be fine. It's just this one launch that is really a creek/river leading out to Lake Erie. It a MUDDY type creek that pumps out all kinds of clay like mud, especially when it rains.

It my go to spot for Lake Erie JUMBO Perch.........Cattaraugus Creek
