Bought first horse trailer, need paint advise..............pleaseeeeeee!

Well, we did it! Not sure how it happened but it did! I didn't expect it so I am still in disbelief, lol.

As you can tell, this is my first horse trailer purchase. Nowwwwwwwwwww, we need paint!!! I need serious help here from all those that have re-done trailers or anything of the like. We have rust, I do not think anything is rotting through but need to convert it and prep and paint. I first read of this rust converter on this forum but have no idea how to use it or how it works. And after you use it how do you get it smooth to paint???

Any and all advise will be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Have an aluminum trailer so no help with the rust or the re-doing but wanted to say Congratulations. It is nice to have wheels to move our horses around :)

If there is rust I would say find someone that does sandblasting

That will remove all of the paint & primer, then you can repaint yourself or find someone to do it for you:

Primer (look into sandless primers, I don't really know anything about them but heard of them after helping with the last trailer paint project I helped with)

Then a good quality paint, you can get them where it's a paint that is also acceptable for exterior, or a paint then a clear coat over (just like a car's paint job)

Okay dokey, I had a 1980 stock trailer, some rust had set in. I bought a brand new slant and needed to the sell the stock. Hubby sanded it down a bit, used spray can primer and then spray painted it with Rustoleum paint, that's it, turned out great. First picture is of before, then after. 1st person who looked at the stock trailer, bought it.
