    I have a tandem axle trailer that had the fenders and steps pretty beat up when I got it. I have removed the old steps/fender supports and the fenders. I want to go back with just the fenders, no step/support on each end of the fenders. I just think it looks a lot cleaner. I don't intend on using the fenders as a step so I'm not concerned with it supporting weight. Can someone post some pictures of their trailer with this type of set up so I can get an idea of how to mount them? I see a few on here, but can't see how they are attached. Any pictures greatly appreciated.

    I see you don't have many posts here on the pb forum. This is the for sale section for trailer parts etc. specifically. Move this inquiry over to the v-drive boats section and you will likely have many more responses and examples as it seems the v-drives tend to get this type of modification more often. To answer your question, from what I've seen typically they replace the standard plywood backing plate with a minimum 1/8" thick steel plate (max 1/4" should be more than sufficient) with 2 or 3 (I prefer 3) steel tube sections welded between the trailer frame and backing plate to set proper standoff clearance and height. Fender can be bolted or welded to backing plate, the latter probably the best for vibration reasons.

    JetJunky, yeah I saw that I posted in for sale after hitting the reply button. I did repost in the "how-to" section, but now that you make the point about v-drives, that is where I probably have seen them before. Thanks for the advice.

    Skidder, yes this is what I am referring to. Do you have any close ups? I resubmitted this topic in the "how to" section.

    We call it a "floating" or "panel" mount... We used 1/4 inch plate for backing...
