Just completed a 10 day road trip with the trailer. Unfortunately I had a little mishap at the Vermont border - I brushed up against a yellow post and busted the driver side skirt - and added three yellow racing stripes to the lower (grey) portion of the sidewall.
2 questions:
1) Where can I buy a replacement (white) tire skirt for a 2008 Cruiser 32SB; and
2) Anyone have a DIY yellow paint removing hint?
Thanks.....

The skirt will probably have to come from CR (if they have one for a 2008) or you may be lucky looking through an RV salvage yard - do a search online for one close to you. I have had good luck with "goof off" and paint.

As a follow up, try icondirect.com. Good luck.

We used mild rubbing compound when we were sideswiped on our way home from the dealer three years ago. Took all the offending orange paint off without damage to the gel coat.

A wind gust ripped part of a wheel skirt off a previous trailer we had. As I found all the missing pieces I rebuilt the skirt using epoxy and fiberglass matting on the inside. The small seams that remained on the outside were masked with some auto body filler and a blast of spray paint.
This could be an option for you if you are unsuccessful finding a replacement fender.

Had a problem with the drivers side skirt breaking around 3 of the screws holding the skirt on. We was east bound on I-90 with a strong south wind. The only thing I could figure out was there is no support on the bottom of the skirt and the wind flexed the skirt enough to break it at the attach point. Pass side no problem. You may want to add some bottom support to kept it tight
