Hi Debby elome2: to FiberglassRV. We're glad you're here

There are lots of kind and helpful people here on the forums. I'm betting you'll get an answer to your question shortly.

Do you have any pictures to share?

Generally any kind of automotive paint will work just fine on fiberglass, plus it is made to be polished and waxed. I ran into a problem using a paint by Interlux made for fiberglass - Brightsides. It can't be polished or waxed, as it instantly loses its shine, and can't be overtopped by much, if anything. I painted the deck of my classic boat with it, and am in the process of trying a few different things to overcoat it with something that can be polished and waxed.

Are you having it sprayed, or doing it with roller and brush? If roller and brush, one of the best all around paints out there is good old oil-based Rustoleum. Prepare your surface well, keep the surface uber clean, and thin the paint for your 1st coats. It requires a lot of elbow grease, color sanding and buffing, but can work if you have the time.

You really can't beat UV-protected car paint, generally base coat/cl;ear coat. It will give you the longest life as long as you take care of it.

Good luck!

Frank

The inside will not be much affected by UV unless you leave it with windows open in the same place all the time. Even still, about anything including general interior house paint would work inside, something high quality though.

I wanted flames, but didn't want anything too big. I ended up buying a sticker kit that allows you to print your own stickers, then drew my own flames. I am painting the trailer this weekend so I will cut out the flames and spray paint, then remove the sticker. This option only works for small items. I am also doing this to paint the Boler emblem above the front and back windows.
