Hello all;
Have just finished painting the ensolite walls of my Scamp with the Zinser paint Kevin recommended and it looks great!! Smelling better too. Now want to work on the other surfaces, seats, bench, sink area. Are these areas fiberglass or plastic. My guess is fiberglass but want to make sure. also, any recommendations for what to use to paint or refinish them?
Thanks for everyones help so far, I will post pictures when done.
Nanc

Nancy,

Your interior modules are fiberglass. But they can be painted. After proper surface preparation (thorough cleaning, light sanding, thorough cleaning) I had good luck using Rustoleum "Appliance" spray paint.

If your modules have surface imperfections, these can be filled/repaired with a variety of options (including: fiberglass resin with a colloidal silica adhesive filler; "Marine-tex"; and/or Interlux surfacing putty) before you paint.

Thanks Robert, I will give it a try.

Trailer: 1982 Burro

I am also thinking of painting the inside of my Burro, after filling the many screw holes left by the former occupant. I was considering Stix primer, which claims to stick to anything, followed by some paint with sand added for texture. The idea is that the texture might hide the imperfections left after my fill job. has anyone ever used textured paint?
