Paint interior of Trillium

Hello everyone. I have a '74 13' Trillium that has a foam-like interior on the walls (except above the stove/sink area). Can it be painted and if so, is there a certain type of paint one must use? Thanks.

We did our boler American with Kilz as a primer and One Shot sign paint as a top coat. You can see the results in the latter part of this thread.

The One Shot comes in many colours. If I were to do it again, I would do two coats of Kilz primer rather than one.



You will find many different responses. FWIW ours is still holding up after 17 years.

Thanks! It gets a wee bit of mold every winter which I wash with bleach water each spring before the camping season, but it would also be nice to brighten it with some paint. I will do a couple coats of Kilz then. Thanks again.

Use Concrobium on the moldy areas, before the Kilz. Available at Home Depot.
Store the trailer for extended periods with the cushions away from the walls to allow for some air circulation. I'm sure the members from BC and the Wet Coast will give you their suggestions.

I am from and live on the wet coast of BC. And yes, I take everything out at the end of the season each year. Any wood that I leave in it for the winter has been painted with Kilz and regular paint.

I used 2 coats of Klitz as the primer (also did the insides of all the cabinets and storage).
The 2 coats of Sherwin Williams Suff-x.
Looks like new.
