Hi
We have Bigfoot 18 and want to paint the exterior. I'm looking for product and method suggestions.
Thanks

Bigfoot painting

Your paint job on your trailer looks great. Thanks for the info re paint. Did you apply with an electric sprayer and how did you prime/prepare the surface for painting?

Thanks
Lyn

Paint was applied with the roll and tip method. Prep is the most important part. Sand and fill any pin holes before priming. Clean with acetone. I put 3 coats of primer, sanding between coats and 3 coats of white. Again sanding between coats. The stripes and front lettering were painted on as well, 3 coats.
