We picked up a new Sunnybrook 29dbs TT last week, and I noticed it has no sheet metal wheel well liner, which means flying rocks and stones would hit the flexible black lining on the belly of the trailer. I'd really hate to tear the lining. Most trailers I've seen have a sheet metal liner to protect the black underlining of the trailer. Could others (especially Sunnybrook owners) comment on their trailers?

Thanks!

Just went out and looked at our Sunnybrook. It has sheet metal above the tires, extends about 4 inches past the front and rear of the tires. It's not real thick but it's there.

My 2000 Fleetwood has black plastic (looks like a hard polyethylene) formed liner in the wheel wells. No sheet metal. I'm sure a sharp object would break it.

We have the flexible black lining in the wheel wells on our SunnyBrook. I think most trailers made after around 2000 will have some kind of plastic in the wheel wells.

This is a great topic, and although I'm a class A motorhome owner, I can certainly testify to the inner wheel well structure problems using plastic. My motorhome has plastic liners and there's been several threads in the past of rver's sharing horroer stories about lost plumbing, ripped holding tanks, torn off sidewalls, etcetera. I too would like to see some manufacturer create sheet metal wheel well liners. It wouldn't take much, maybe 6 or 8 self-tapping screws, to hold them up in place. The metal liners would prevent an awful lot of damage that's done in maybe two or three seconds when you suffer a tire blowout.

I found some 8" wide sheet metal, comes in a 25' roll at Home Depot. A box of self-tapping screws, pop-rivets and 2 tubes of silicone and you have metal lined wheel wells. Took me about an hour after I got the camper jacked up and wheels off.
