    Anyone know what brand paint Extreme Trailers used to use (or maybe even a paint code for white) on their trailers? The trailer sticker says "white 877" but doesn't indicate a brand. Talked to Extreme yesterday and guy in CS didn't have a clue, as they powdercoat everything now. Said just buy the whitest white I could find. Hmmmm...

    Sounds like pretty lame customer service on their part. I'm sorry to hear they weren't able to help you out. (Could have gotten your number and said he would check for you!) Good luck with your search though. ;)

    Call Adrenaline Trailers in Havasu. Frank has a ton of experience and used to work at Extreme, so he might know.

    I'll have to disagree w the lame customers service. Tony from extreme is a member here and has been very helpful and on it. I have some touch up paint I'll see what it says when I get home

    I think the CS person was trying to help me out, I just don't think he knew the answer. Could he have found or asked someone who was there back then? Probably, but he was helping me with a couple of other things. I had talked to them previously and they were great. Didn't mean to sound like I was trashing them, I was just stating what I was told. Actually, I thought it was kinda funny. "Just buy the whitest white you can find." Sounds like something I would say, but it's crazy how many different whites there are.

    I wasn't ticked off, I just posted because I figured many of you have Extreme trailers under your boats and thought someone might know the paint codes or manufacturer.

    Looks nice and sturdy. What size tubing did they use on the ladder itself? Looks bigger, which is better, than 2 in. to me.

    That's news to me? I know they probably lurk on here though.. Damn near everybody does, but I don't think I've ever seen anyone from Extreme post on here? (Not saying they haven't, because it's impossible to see everything) just saying I've never seen it?

    He posts on the DL. He was very helpful during my rebuild and that's why I ended up going with them.

    Going to fabricate a front ladder for my trailer, similar to the one on CoolCruisin's trailer and BHC VIC's Extreme trailer. Looking for protective pads for this ladder and I can't find any that look like those in the pics. Does anyone know what these are actually called and can they be found anywhere besides Extreme? They look like a hard rubber or some type of plastic. Just don't want to use a board w/carpet here. Bottom pic is a little closer.

    Beautiful! I dig the tow flaps. Never understood why more guys don't use them.

    After seeing how much damage was done on the front of the stoker from towing (rock chips) I'm getting a set that bolts into the hitch.

    I have always used a set for going across the desert. If you're truck is lifted and the boat sits low enough, you'll find pebbles inside the boat too.

    I once had a set of Road Wings. They work great if you can get over the logos on the flaps. I built a set myself that I run now, that work great. If I were to buy another off the shelf set, I'd get the Rock Tamers.


    BTW- Your Stoker looks great. I saw it in Needles, back in Feb.
