I love old campers!! I just got one but I need some advice on how to fix it up. I put some pictures of our camper on now, but I'll try and update them as we do more work.

We can't find any older rims for our camper and we need an extra for a spare. Does anybody know where we might find one?

Advice on painting the outside of my vintage trailer

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

Cute camper and I am sure it will be adorable when you get it completed. Looking forward to seeing your camper when you are all done. :o)

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?
