The paint on mine seems to be very well done. What I like is they sand blast the steel before powder coat which gets rid of most of the impurities. What I do not like is the spare tire(s) mounting. They lay the tire on two supports in the neck and bolt one end of a chain to the support and hook the other end in one of the lug nut holes. If you have two spares, like mine , they simply stack the second spare on top of the first and it is not chained or otherwise secured. The simple answer is to put a ratchet strap over the second tire.Been eyeballing this same trailer but think I will go tandem dual. They appear to be very well made trailers. The only thing I don't like about gatormade is they powder coat them but so do most the big names it seems.
My 06 E320 CDI in stock form has 201hp and 369lbft of torque. It has a tuner and has been fully deleted, it puts down about 270hp and 525lbft of torque. If the chassis would handle it would easily tow a Sami. I used this setup to run the GNCC race at snowshoe with two bikes and all our gear on a roof rack and still got 33mpg running 75-80. I just need to figure out how to put a 5th wheel hitch on it to tow my toy hauler.^That reminds me of my plan from years back to buy an early to mid 90's Cadillac Fleetwood (the one with the LT1 motor), and use it to haul my Samurai around wheeling.
