Sounds about right. They shrink wrapping it and storing outside?

Just don't buy the trailer Munson sells its junk.

Started to rust a month after delivery. Dealer offered to touch it up. Now has about half a dozen rust spots. Center light on the back isn't even in the center. Brakes were making noise last time I towed with it. I just don't like the build quality. Should have done a galvanized trailer.

Honestly not very excited about this cold snap so early in the winter season. The lakes will thaw again before they freeze for good. River was 44* when I hit it with the temp gun on Sunday. I really want to ride the chain this year. Would be AWESOME if I you could make it thorough Johnsburg and not have to deal with open water but I'm not holding my breath.

I feel like the lakes will freeze, then heave, then freeze again. Making it rough for snowmobiles
