Looks nice. Did you take the decals off? Is that the original gelcoat finish or has it been painted?
What kind of RVing do you do? Looks maybe like off roading? :D

Do you have a spare tire or would you need a rim? Is the factory bumper in good condition ?

I think I have about 20 spares..the front and rear bumpers are nice...the rear has the rubber step covering the thitch..

I would also say the anybody that tows with the stock hitch should look at the way they did the angle iron and the welds :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock:

Go to the Born Free factory website http://www.bornfreerv.com and search for their Parts Store page. You should find replacement cabinet door hinges there.
