    I did it myself and i used a brush and a roller to do the job. I used Sherwin williams paint.It was a primer called pro-cryl and a finish product called sher-cryl both were latex products.I cleaned it well then hand sanded it with a piece of sand paper just to scuff it up and then painted it. I also used all surface enamel another sherwin williams product for the blue and the black.If i make it sound simple it is because i am a painter . The prep job is the key to a good paint job that looks good and sticks well.PREP PREP PREP

    It looks great. That is the next thing we are going to do also. My husband is a painter to. So I am glad that it will be easy for him to do. [:D]

    Was it difficult to get the old decals off? What did you use on them?

    We used a strip off wheel to remove our pin stripes before we painted ours. There are a few out, you can get the 3m one, its expensive, make sure you order the tool to attach it. Or you can get one with the built in tool attachment. You can get them online or at a local car paint shop.

    Check my blog for example pics.

    I used a heat gun and a flat four inch scraper to remove the decals and then since i was painting i wiped the glue off with laquer thinner.I am sure there are easier ways but it worked for me.

    You did a great job! Just wondering if your roof or body of the pop-up is textured or smooth. All of ours is textured so we are concerned about getting the paint to stick and also with getting new decals to stick since the surface is not flat. How much paint and primer did you use?
