Solutions to a lack of diamond plate...
I just picked up my 2014 A124TS (moving down from a 2007 Rockwood 2502) and the first thing that I noticed when I was looking at it (prepurchase) was a lack of diamond plate on the front of the storage box. I have the new tan/brown (whatever you want to call it) exterior coloring instead of the white that all the older models have. I liked the diamond plate on the white models, but the more I think about it, the more I think that the diamond plate just wouldn't look quite right on the new tan/brown color, it would be the ONLY shiny thing on the trailer.
The problem is...what to do do protect the front end of the trailer? My first thought is to use the paint on rhino lining that you get at just about any hardware store now. It would protect well from rocks, could be repaired should it get scarred up, and the black on the front of the storage box would just help it blend in with the rest of the trailer given the new color scheme FR has adopted.
Thoughts and comments please. How do you think it would look on the trailer (although protection does trump looks in the end)?
Do any of you have any experience with the paint on rhino lining? I have had the liner in the bed of two of my trucks (including the current TV) and loved it, but it was preinstalled, not something I did myself.
