I just bought a 2000 t2475 pull along . Camper was washed by someone , and washed some paint off . I thought maybe I'd go to Lowe's and purchase some metal paint and roll it on since it has a slightly textured finish
Is this a good idea ? It is a fixer upper, but everything works well . I repair my own stuff since I used to be an appliance tech . Any suggestions ....thanks

First, welcome to Sunline Club.

I've seen all kinds of paint jobs on travel trailers. Some well done and others not. It mostly depends on adequate prep of the surface and then attention to detail when applying the paint.

Metal paint like Rustoleum can work fine. You might experiment with thinning it a bit to avoid roller marks.

Pics when you're done!!!!

Krylon flat white spray paint blends in real well for spot repairs. Buff out with rubbing compound when dry.

Skip,

Sunline has been out of business since 2006.
Decals are getting harder to find, but someone here on the forum may be able to help you out.

I don't but here is what you can do. Remove one tail light assembly best one is the left because that's where the did the connections trim off a 1" piece and take it to a good paint store they can scan it for you and come up with a match.
