"No problem. We actually used the Petite topside paint very similar to the Interlude paint. Both are self leveling. Which I love. Gives that shiny gloss finish right off the bat. I have used both paint systems on various projects in the past coming…"

My husband and I are in our mid 50's, and we recently purchased a vintage motorhome (1988 National RV 27ft. Dolphin). We want to play for a while to see if this is something we would be interested in doing when we retire. At the moment we have been cleaning and updating our motorhome and look forward to using her this summer.
