After a winter tour in Scotland i found my trailer all rusty from the bad weather and the salt
The paint is cheap and gets damaged pretty soon, i haven`t used a cover before, but it`s a great idea.
The cheapest possible way is a plastic bag, but even better would be a rain cover from a big backpack, like the Lowe Alpine Alpamayo.
Btw, i found out there are three things about the B.O.B which really suck!
- As said, the paint is pretty weak.
- The bearings, i had to replace mine after a 1000 km
- The replacement axles for the rear wheel, they bent like spaghetti, even if you don`t have a fully loaded trailer.
But hey, the trailer design is pretty good
My trailer is just back from the powder-coater , it`s now covert with a though layer of dark blue coating.
I only have to mount the pivot and she`s ready to roll!
As for the pivot, just put enough grease inside, it should be fine!
