I've recently looked at a 1995 merhow, gorgeous trailer, only catch is it's made out of FRP and some of it needs to be replaced.

I've yet found another trailer, another merhow, for about a grand less, sold by a woman who needs it gone. Again, gorgeous trailer, 1994 Turfman, and wary about what I've heard with FRP and merhows I asked her if it was aluminum, steel, or FRP. she didn't seem to know what FRP was, and said it was steel frame aluminum skin. To me, it just doesn't look like an aluminum trailer, and I think it's FRP and she doesn't know it. It's about a 5 hour drive, and id rather not be surprised with the fact that what I drove that far for wasn't as described. Figured Id ask the community what they think of the pictures and see if any of you can spot what it's made out of. Thank you!

Am I missing pics somrwhere? Usually, FRP trailers will be smooth sided. Most older aluminum trailers will have rivets holding the skin on. Maybe that will help you tell.
