As for materials, I like POR 15. As for anything you put on the rusty metal, if you do not do the prep work, it will come back.
I will take a picture sometime this week and post it.

That is unacceptable on a new unit, I would be dissatisfied as well. Mine is over 6 years old and has no rust to speak of, I did touch up the Aframe a couple years ago with black Rustoleum. But I`ve never towed it on salty roads and it was delivered in October so no salt there either.

And I was moaning about a few small spots where they welded. To me it looks like that metal was not properly prepared prior to painting. I would send a few pictures to Jayco and see what they say. service@jayco.com

Wow! Not what I was expecting. I was thinking a few blemishes. I would be upset.

Frame Rust

That can be fixed. 8 months old? I would certainly expect this to be covered under warranty. Have you seen what it looks like above the enclosure?
