Like the topic says: I am removing some of stuff riveted to our trailer's walls and putting new stuff in that won't line up with the old holes.

Is there a simple, attractive, and water-tight way to fill the empty holes?

Peter, I removed the stinky slinky tube off the front and the spare tire of the I too had some holes to fix. I used Marine/Plastic Fiberglass Repair. It's a two part putty, cut off a chunk and kneed until the colors combine...roll into a sausage and stuffed it in. It's sandable and paintable. The color doesn't match perfectly tho. I'm not sure anything would. Perhaps a tiny bit of spot paint would help. I bought it at Lowe's for less than $5. I also used it on a wood fence when the gate catch screws had stripped out.

We have used the two part epoxy in various forms for years on the tugs I work on to make a quick and easy fix. The stuff from devcon is great and easy to use. There are other brands out there as well. Good stuff.
