Custom Colors... when black just won't do...

Available Colors... just in case black won't do....

Let's talk about paint. 
As long as I have been building trailers, for the last 23 years, one thing has become apparent. Trailers have a tough life. They sit six feet behind your trucks bumper and get everything thrown at them. It's a tough life and you WILL take them down to bare metal in no time. Short of very extreme (and expensive) measures, it will happen. 

The other thing about coatings on a trailer are expense. 
You can get a trailer at a great price and live with some paint chipping, or you can spend more money and still put up with some paint chipping... or you can blow the wad and go full blown custom shop, media blasted, acid etch primed and Imron coated perfection.... and still get chips. 

At Hull Trailers, we try to give you all we can for the money you spend. But, to be honest, a $2,000 car trailer cannot have a $4000 paint job on it. It's amazing that I have to put this in writing, but I do. Realistic expectations are required here. 

Not to say that we don't offer it as an option! If you have to have absolute iron hard perfection in your coatings, we offer our custom shop coating system. It's rather involved and does many things that a std production finish wouldn't include, like media blasting of the entire chassis, acid etching primer throughout and your choice of colors sprayed in DuPont Imron. One of the hardest to kill paint finish systems money can buy and only $180 per running foot of trailer length (Yes, it's a $3600 OPTION on a 20' trailer. If you feel a little light headed now, we can understand, but it is the ultimate in a coatings system and asks the question, "So, how bad DO you hate paint chips?")

So, now that we have gone over the basics, you can get your new Hull trailer knowing full well that it's been acid prepped, iron phosphated and coated in the latest Precision DM coating system available, but it will chip up and it will scratch. It's the curse of having to sit where it sits and having rocks thrown at it all day. 

I will say one thing about colors. A trailer is basically a tool. It's a hammer, a screwdriver, whatever and the easier it is to use and maintain, the more you will love your tool. I always recommend good old black. Because, let's face facts, these things sit in the worst possible place you can put an item. Day in and day out debris hammers it directly and just beats the living daylights out of it.

So, you know that chips are inevitable. That's why I love black enamel paint. It is tough without being excessively expensive and when you want to touch it up, a can of $3.99 gloss black touches it up and off you go. Black really is basically black and that's why we love it for the working trailer.

That said, we still offer a few optional colors. Your cost is $100 to have your New Hull Trailer finished any any of the three following shades. We also have our complete color chip selection on here, other than the aforementioned red, silver and safety yellow colors at $100, Just let us now what you need and we will do our best to make it happen.
