If it were me it would be painted cream on top and light forest service green or light mint green on the bottom. These colors inspire camping. I would never do it primered as it limits the buyers market. no one wants to spend big amounts of cash and still have to work on it. You also open the door to the paint job didn't come out right and now we are not going to buy it or what is really going on underneath that primer. First impressions make the sale and bad impressions are hard to over come. Primer is a bad impression.

Don't get confused. Go with your plan, it's not like you picked purple and red!

Personally, I think your colors will be perfect!

That is a neat idea about doing the primer and coloring to suit Francesca. Unfortunately I also see where Steve is coming from and who knows how the paint will turn out. Also lots of people would have a hard time visualizing how it may look - I would be one of them!
Thanks again for the input everyone.

Newbee question,
Can you paint the fiberglass exterior yourself?? If so, what paint do you use??

Thanks, Susan H.

Susan -Yes, lots of people paint trailers themselves. If you do a google search on this site you will find lots of info. Marine paint is popular but some people have also used rustoleum which is less expensive. I plan on using Brightside marine paint with the roll and tip technique (lots on internet about this) and hopefully it works out well.
If you have the original gel coat there is stuff to make it really shiny again (Red max pro etc) so you don't need to paint.

Kootenaigirl,
Thanks. I love the facts that most stuff on this camper, I can do myself.
I got a wash, wax and uv protector at West Marine so we will see how that turns first.
