trailer exterior

so I'm wonering what the consensus is on exteriors
remebers pictures are always nice
There is a world, just beyond now,
where reality runs a razor thin seam between fact and possibility;

Anywhere I roam where I lay my head is home....

"Bright" anodized aluminum.

(Almost as shiny as polished aluminum but not nearly the maintenance. If I ever get my teardrop finished, I'll pull of the rest of the protective plastic covering.)
