I'd look at using "Mr Tubby" for the refinishing (and typing without Caps Lock on as it implies shouting or anger).

I used a 2 part epoxy bathtub paint that I purchased at Sherwin Williams.
I am sorry I don't remember the name but I am sure you won't have trouble finding an epoxy tub/tile paint. I painted the fiberglass tub and the plastic lavatory. I did spray it. The box says you can brush it but I did not like the results. You will have to thin it just a little more to spray it but the results I got were great. Also, the fumes are very strong so a charcoal filter mask is a must. After 4 years of use, my bath still looks great with no chips or discoloration. If you do have a chip or mess up spraying it you can let it dry for a couple days to fully cure, wet sand it with a 320 wet paper and respray.

I apologize to you for the cap locks. I work for law enforcement and caps are easier for us. Again apologies.

Thanks so much. I will look into that. So the tubs in the trailer are fiberglass? And sink and counter are just molded plastic.

68 TWind - I was not aware that the fiberglass tub could be painted. Mine is ok but nice to know. Thanks for the info.

Just did this in my 72 Overlander. Used HOMAX from lowes. You must use an adhesion promoter after you clean the parts.
