Re: How to stop trailer rust?
I've got a dory trailer that was made out of carbon steel, and I had it acid dipped and then galvanized at a place under the Freemont bridge in Portland. That was in 1990 and it is still rust free except where the sand has scraped the zinc off. It may be spendy, but so is a new trailer. I dont remember the name of the place but I bet a web search would find a myriad of places that do this kind of work.
