Will Do

Hey Ragin;

I just picked up the rig last Wednesday. I am the guy that had his brand new F-350 break down while towing the 5'r home and had to be towed into my dealer. I haven't had the unit out since last week but will be doing so this Thursday. I will post a pic in my Avatar shortly thereafter. The only picture I currently have is the 5'r, my truck and the tow truck. It looked like a train.


Thanks for the input

I lined mine with rhino liner as soon as I got my Sabre. It had rust from the factory! The Rhino liner fixed that rust problem (or at least hid it and kept it from spreading). I think having some type of bedliner sprayed on is the way to go.

As a matter of fact, I liked it so much I decided to do it twice! We got rear-ended just a few months after purchasing the camper. The bikes and bike rack were bent up, so insurance paid for a new rack, bikes, and to re-do the rhino liner on the rack.

Exactly! Hides but doesn't even prevent rust

My rack is exactly like R Cajuns - except the whole thing is mounted w/channels down. Many in Columbus line are flipped back and forth (channels up - down). I guess it depends ho much beer was consumed the night before for the ass'y line guys.

as for the rust when i worked on tugboats we used a MAB paint product called Osmo but they no longer make it. I have found a replacement by Loctite i think it is the same stuff just in a spray can. Rust Converter Spray, Extend Rust Neutralizer Directions from Loctite Adhesives

I would think that channels UP would be correct. The bike tires will sit INSIDE the channels instead of on top. I also strapped a blue tote on mine and the tires fit nicely inside the channels. Never moved for the entire 500 mile trip.

I've been using Rust Oleum for years and years with great results. Stopped rust from spreading for me. And that all that counts as far as I'm concerned.
