I think we got the 1195-lb trailer. We did two things with the fenders. First we used the runners that came with the teardrop kit, which raised the teardrop almost level with the fenders (about 1/4 lower I think). Secondly, we took the fenders off the trailer, removed the bracket it was on, and screwed the fenders right into the bottom of the teardrop so there is no gap.
Here are some in progress photos… We took a lot at the beginning when we were excited then didn’t take so many later on.
