    Can't say, I didn't keep the trailer long enough.  Hot tires will pull 
up almost anything.  Sand/paint is probably the cheapest way to go, but if 
you are keeping this trailer for a long time, the additional cost of 
Herculiner or similar would not be, in my opinion, prohibitive.  You're 
talking $30/ga for exterior paint plus some sand, versus $78/ga for 
Herculiner ( on Amazon ).  Labor on each would be the same.

    Good luck.
