I voted lucky number 7. I'm with Steve. Navajo White, but visable frame parts, wheels and decals whatever color of the towing tug.

I voted for brilliant white. I would also do some stripes of color or some graphics to match the tow or the inside decor of the trailer.

i opt for firetruck red. why?? well, there are sooooo many white and off-white trailers. and this one has HEART. yours. if it didn't, would you have wanted it back????
therefore, i HEARTILY suggest red. the colour of love. the colour of passion. and not only that, but i saw a red T@B and it was truly beautiful.

I've always liked the idea of painting the trailer to match the color and design of the tow vehicle.

White over red, to coordinate with your Fibrestream. I have always liked this combo since seeing "The Big Bobber" at the OG.

Pictures of an empty shell

Ah, memories. This is about what the Compact Jr. looked like inside when I 1st saw it 10 years ago. Right now the street side window has leaked badly, and I need to track down the source of the leak that damaged the corner of the floor next to the entry door.

My original thought was that this would be Robert's trailer, that would lighter and simpler for him to use by himself and pull behind his Pontiac Vibe, which is Silver Gray.

Pink is my favorite color, for some reason i don't see a man painting anything majenta. I have two steel doors DH painted Majenta, but only because he got tired of waiting for me to pick out a color. Come on girls, vote for pink!!!!!!!!!

Cool I've reached a decision (I think)

I've decided that the upper half of the main body and the wheels will be white, and the Fiberglass part of the pop-top and the lower half of the main body will be Turquoise. The band around the equator separating the white and turquoise will be a Reflectorized Red tape stripe, and it will have chrome baby moon hubcaps.

In the meantime, I got it completely stripped to prep for the body work.

I like the turquoise and white... not so sure about adding the red reflector tape. If you are just going for the reflector quality it comes in white.

I wanted an accent to make it *POP* hence the Red stripe.
