For Airstream refurbishing it is a great choice.
Actually if you read the label you will see that you are supposed to use Vintage Trailer Supply - Vintage travel trailer parts and supplies! and then Vintage Trailer Supply - Vintage travel trailer parts and supplies! and then two coats of POR 15 and then Vintage Trailer Supply - Vintage travel trailer parts and supplies! because the POR 15 cannot be exposed to UV light. That is what you are supposed to do. If you choose to simplify it it to two coats, that is your business.

Thumbs up Master Series

Rustoleum will never do what POR 15 can do.

Another alternative that I have used and have had very good results with is a product called MASTER SERIES

MasterSeriesCT Coating Line Rust Prevention - MasterSeriesCT
MasterSeriesCT Coating Line Rust Prevention - Product Info

POR 15 is UV sensitive, Master Series is not. ( silver )
It can be painted over with any color.

I know this has probably been covered before, but refresh me: what about parts that still have paint on them? for example, the upper parts of most of my x-members look perfectly fine...still have the original paint, but the lower parts (where the insulation held the water against them) is all rusty. Do you have to strip all that paint, then metal-ready it? or can you POR right over it?

Basically just clean it up. I sandblasted the entire frame, but you don't have to do that. The POR website explains it pretty well.
