Ok,
Time for a set of fenders... The vibration has taken its toll on mine, and with people stepping on them, adding cracks, they're in need of replacement. Went to the OEM web site to order a pair, and the part number is : 6138.72. When I googled this hoping to get a local supplier, it appears its just a generic galvanized steel fender used by many manufacturers..

Anyone have a good source? Should I consider aluminum or composite replacements? It is a fresh water use galvanized Load Rite trailer.
Thanks

He indicated people are stepping on the fender - will the plastic fender old up to that kinda of abuse? Thanks!

Good question. Were the replacements you bought for a tandem? "NO STEP" decals can't be too hard to come by.......

Not to rob your thread but I know someone will step on the fenders I need to replace - regardless of a sticker!! I was just wondering if plastic can hold up to that abuse. ;?

I've got plastics on my single axle trailer. No problem with stepping on them.

Smack them, that will cure them of it! ;)

I had plastic fenders on my trailer and I suppose I stepped on them a few times. They never cracked or broke. I don't know if they would stand up to heavy traffic or heavy people.
