Stang, if your trailer is a boatmate you can go to their website, www.boatmateparts.com/products/Fenders-tag-Fenders/e, good luck and don't be to hard on the GF.

Especially if you want her to be your GFF.

I had a blowout that ripped my fender off. I bought a new one from boatmate for around $180 bucks with the holes drilled, painted, and pinstriped to match the trailer.

The problem: Pinstripes were crooked and all four holes were drilled in the wrong place. You may want to save some $ if you have a Tractor Supply around. They have some fenders that look like they'll work. You would have to paint them yourself though.

I would post on where members are upgrading to larger wheels. They have nothing else to do with their old fenders but scrap. I had to get new wider fenders when I went to 18" wheels. I don't know what my dealer did with the old ones. You could make a deal with another member. Shipping is probably a PITA

I meant to call them but never did. The wrong holes they drilled are about 1" off on both the front and the back which means that about 5/8ths of the hole they drilled is covered from where the fender hits where it mounts. The pinstriping was obviously done by someone with a shaky hand but once you get 5+ feet from it you can't really tell.

If I were you, and if you have the means, I would just buy the steel fender as-is and drill your own holes, pick up some primer and a quart of paint and do it all yourself. You will save the extra $ and have a better looking fender in the end.
