Did 1 coat of Marine grade topside paint, planning on doing 2 more coats - top and bottom to finish it off...

I added some anti-slip additive, normally used on boat decks - to cover up some of the imperfections of the 35 year old camper - yes it adds a orange peel kind of look, but I do like how that is...

the best news - is the wife is much happier now with the black and white - versus the photo in the first shot - - That was a tough one.... me coming home with that - and getting the question - - what the *&%$ is that doing in the driveway....

Wow what a deference!

Ours is still yucky on the outside. I would love to paint it but don't have the energy.

Yes we have acknowledged that aspect of having an unremarkable looking trailer. Being a Boler it draws enough attention even with it's anti theft look!.
