Since your planning on keeping it I think something unique would be cool. Im not a big fan of the blue thats on it but i think it would look cool if you repainted it like it is but just did the white and then where the blue is either purple or a light green would be pretty cool.

Yes I am from AZ. I live up in Prescott.

So we basically have the same trailer. I would love to see what you end up doing with it.
This is mine. I can't wait to get stated, but it's been tough finding the time.

I would do white, and if you are feeling really creative, maybe do some accents that match the color of your vehicle. Black, dark blue, whatever color your truck is. Tribal sort of designs are my personal favorite, but you could also do scenery. I honestly wouldn't paint the whole thing purple or anything too crazy. Dark blue is as far as I would go into color, and that's only if the truck is that color. Black is also pushing it. Darker the color the more it conducts heat, though I'm sure none of this is news to you :p
