Well we are about finished stripping our 22 ft. Argosy. Now we have to decide if we are going to repaint her or polish her?

I love some of the creative paint jobs on the Argosy trailers - there's a thread in here somewhere with great paint jobs. I don't think you asked for opinions but I'd vote paint :-)

I'd go with paint also. You'll have to get very creative with the end caps if you polish the rest to a shine. They won't polish at all being steel.

We know the ends don't polish, but we may just paint them silver. We know it will not be a perfect match.

We don't have time to paint it right now anyway, so I think we will just put everything back together and use it like this for a while. That will help us decide if we like it unpainted or not.

There's a lot of great paint jobs in this thread. From the Toyota Silver to some of the great 50s shades....

Ya know what might look good

How about the top half white, and the bottom half polished?

It would solve the end cap issue

You could polish without a ladder
