Well done BBurch220.. did the paint roll out smooth or did it leave much of a texture? I just sprayed my project as well, used spray bomb and not thrilled with the results.

Looks like your in my cousin's neighborhood in NE Philly..

It did roll out smooth but wasn't an issue for me bc the side panels are textured on mine

Looks amazing. We have a similar decal but a smaller version on the inside of the camper. I redid the inside first (now dealing with mechanical issues, should of figured those out first, d'oh). I am considering painting the outside once we get the mechanical issues figured out.

Your trim looks brand new. Ours is yellowed and the putty is a mess. What did you do to make your trim look so nice? Did you redo your putty/caulking also?

How's the paint holding up?

The paint held up well over the winter and so far this year. I did strip out all the old caulk before I painted, then I painted and finally recaulked all the seems. I tried the spray paint route first but that didn't go well so I ended up rolling the paint on. That worked better for me.

What did you use for primer and caulking? Basically my goal is to make my camper look as nice as yours :)

I used a 3/8 nap roller with behr alkyd white paint. For caulking I used white window and door silicon. I didn't primer anything as the alkyd had primer in it. I did use a palm sander with low grit to scuff up the surface before I did the painting to help it stick.
