Plastic is Not Always Better

Water has always been a problem for the wheel well area on a travel trailer. The unique space that directs water away from the body also must be secure enough to withstand secure seams and many gallons per minute of high-pressure road spray and snow and ice.

Behind each wheel well are the family or business contents that need to be always dry. For years, the wheel well, areas began to crack and chip since fiberglass or plastic were the only form of protection for everyday events and road vibrations.

Enclosed please find photos of several well-constructed metal or composite alternatives. Constant trailer knowledge of the condition of each well is good maintenance and prevention worth noting every day. It is the little things that we take for granted.
