Those old 2 horse Miley trailers are classic!
If you could buy it and redo it for that cheap, I would.

Right when we left Tx I seen an old Caddy towing one all dolled up, and I immediately started singing a Chris Ledoux song! LOL

That looks nice enzoleya! Good job! How many coats did you do?

Hahaha, cowchick! "There's a bar in the barn and the place stays paaaacckked! Til the cows come home at cadillac ranch!" Lol

Yeah my first trailer was a little miley 2 horse straight load like this. I loved that thing. And I could tow it with my 4runner, but my horse at the time HATED it. Haha.

I just found out, also, that I have access to a paint booth at my uncle's shop. That would be SO nice.

I shall commence my justification speech to my husband. Hahahaha.

That will be really nice if you can get access to the paint both! I'd say the clear took at least two coats. The white on the inside took about 3 since the trailer was originally dark blue and the inside was still dark blue. It wasn't cheap I'll tell you that! Rust-Oleum is pricey, but I think it will be worth it in the long run, it's a pretty hardy paint.

Ok, nice! That looks so shiny for two coats of clear! Inside looks really good too! I just did primer and paint on my stock trailer. Should have done clear over that, but didn't have the time. I agree, rustoleum or a rust resistant paint is totally worth the cost. Here's my stock trailer I did 2 years ago.

Yours looks good! I'm glad you agree that it holds up well. I've only painted metal fences and what not with it, and it's held up really well on that stuff, I'm hoping it will be the same for the trailer. My husband kept giving me grief telling me I couldn't polish a turd, I told him you could clear coat one though! He hates the blue, but I think it's cute, lol.
