I had my stock trailer sandblasted and painted last summer. I took it to my grandpa who does that stuff so all i had to do was pay for the paint which was dirt cheap. But i do recoment sandblasting it...it looks like a brand new trailer...and i got the same paint color as our truck so it matches really nice and i hand painted out brand on the front of it...so it looks good for a stock trailer...lol

good luck!

Ive painted 3 trailers in my life.. The first one was a small one horse that I hand sanded and did all the bondo work on - The next two I had sandblasted and we rented an airless sprayer and sprayed them. Saved THOUSANDS.. Good paint jobs are not CHEAP.. If you are not looking for a top notch finish you may try getting in touch with an ag or auto body program at a high school. You can usually get one done there for a few hundred bucks.. But they are really not that hard to paint.. If you sandblast one be prepared for big holes where ever you had rust on your trailer. You will have to patch, maybe weld and fix those spots..
