Question What about using rattle cans for the primer?

For my Compact Jr. project, I have stripped everything off of the fiberglass body and removed the entire floor. I plan on doing all of the bondo screw hole filling and fiberglass patching myself, and then all of the sanding myself. What about rattle-can spraying a primer coat myself before hauling it to a pro for the final paint job?

I would be more worried about trying to sell it if you you paint and try to sell it. It does not seem to me that campers painted in camouflage sell as quickly or for as much money.

However, I believe in making your own, your own.

I guess the basic question is "Would you want you to park next to you at an RV Park"? If yes, in a year or so, when the paint starts peeling off in sections, ask the same question.
Besides that, why paint desert cammo ,and then go to an RV park????

Yes, U can get into the park but you run the risk of someone running into your camper when they back in to the spot you're already occupying.
