Hi ggspiller,

Rich (vcrt) painted a previous Sunline he had, you may want to contact him for tips and advice.

Here are some posts Rich's posts when he did his repainting that may be helpful to you.
Sunline paint color

Our "New" 1992 Solaris

Hope this was of some help.

Hi , I think I would get a good quality 5or6 inch roller with a 1/4 in nap and use a oil base paint , rustoleum or the like . Use a red scuff pad with warm soapy water and scuff the surface for paint . Rinse well with water and maybe a final wipe with some prep sol from a autobody supplier . Take your time and you can get some good results .

You COULD brush it, but you'd see the brush strokes up close. I painted over my old stripes with a brush.......



Looks good from a slight distance.

The best thing would be to get/rent a professional sprayer. Once the camper was prepped and masked you could paint it easy in one day.

You'd drive yourself crazy with rattle can paint IMO. Not only would you have a hard time getting it to look uniform, you'd go through many, many cans of it.

Not to mention your poor aching finger.

Does anyone know exactly what the name of factory off-white color from the early 1980s was. I am doing work on my 84 Sunline motorhome and would love to know the name or paint code.

They have paint for alum siding, donít use spray cans.
