75 Hunter Compct II Exterior Makeover

I spent about a week of designing and then painting my Hunter Compact II. As an artist, it is hard to resist a basic white canvas. So I looked into paints that work on fiberglass and methods for getting paint to stick, etc. I came up with a pseudo 1975 Gypsy Wagon look for my "Mad Hattie." I still have to apply the gel topcoat but I like how she turned out.

Now that is cool! You're going to be quite the conversation starter at campgrounds.

You are very creative. What is in the white box on the roof near the front window?

Looks more like a vent cover, like for a Fantastic or Maxx fan.

It is a fun look, now you just need to paint your own waterproofed canvas for the popup! People make hand painted, acrylic paint, waterproof floorcloths, using a lightweight canvas that technique should work for a custom popup canvas

It's adorable! Great job. We are renovating a compact junior in tiki hut theme. My daughter is an artist and I'd love for her to do something on ours. Can you please tell me what technique and paints you are using.
