    What is the best way to fix a 1" crack in the fiberglass of my trailer. I think that the bike did it. There were several black hand grip marks on the trailer where the crack is. When I washed off the black marks I found the crack. Must have been the torque when driving to Yosemite from San Diego. I am amazed that the mountain bike could sway that much to hit the trailer.

    Depends on what type of fiberglass you have on your trailer. If you can see "strings" in it, you have filon. It is easily fixed. We can do it, depending on where you are located. If you have High Gloss Fiberglass, that is harder to fix, but not impossible. We can fix that also.

    What you do is grind out the fiberglass and fill itback in. The hardpart (sometime) is finding what happened to cause the crack. If it was you bike, no big deal.
