Hi we just got a 1968 Woodsman travel trailer. I would love some advice on how to paint the outside. Some things I read say to use thinned out oil paint, And then cover with latex. Is this good advice?
I read pros and cons on both, but what I went with was exterior latex. I didn't want to go with automotive paint or take it in to have it painted as i didn't want that gloss type look. I want it to look clean but with a mat type finish. I'm painting one side per weekend. I just finished the passenger side (side with door) Ii'll try to get some pics up before the weekend
Oh and one other thing. I noticed that the woodsman logo on the front of your camper looks pretty clear. Mine is very faded and i'm wanting to make a new one. Would it be possible to get a close up picture of that?
I have done lots of work to my camper. New springs and interior odds and ends, added ac. The hardest part is finding a spare rim to fit the fayette axels on this camper. I am actually in the process of painting it right now, what would you like to know?
