We painted our Trillium all white!!

Our 2 tow vehicles are both black (basically) ~ 2006 Dodge Dakota and a '37 Plymouth (Cherry Coke Black) so this gives us a contrasting colour arrangement, white n black. White will go with any colour you mate up with it.

You could make snazzy decals for the trailer the same color as the tug. I decided on black decals for Ten Forward... they match the tires and trim on my white truck

I did the "roll and tip" method. First fixed any holes and cracks in the fibreglass, then sanded with 80 grit, again with 120, and finally with 220. I used grey interlux primer ( 1 coat) Click image for larger version

ID:	78881. You can see in one picture the top primer and bottom blue color. For the blue, i taped windows and doors rather than remove them. It took 3 coats of paint and i 220 sanded after every coat. It took a few weeks, but we are pleased with the result.

Dlux, your trailer looks amazing. I was planning on painting my 17' the same way.

Do you have any advice or a link on the best way to do the "roll and tip" method of painting?

Thanks andrew. There are some great online videos of rolling and tipping. This one is particularly good.

Have used the interlux paint on fiberglass over gelcoat in the past it worked well on our canoe another option would be gelcoat over gelcoat they sell it for about $200.00 per gallon our area and will colour match.
