I think you'll most likely be disappointed with a quick slap and wipe.
3 weeks just barely gives spray paint time to dry......
Give it the time both it and your family deserve! A breakdown with your family is a major deal breaker that has your family flying home!

The wife and I did this in 14 days, but it was a lot less work than you propose.

I didn't touch the ugly outside, just fresh water plumbing, general repair, and cosmetics.

The fact that I am opinionated does not presuppose that I am wrong......

Sorry for The delay in updating the thread. I did a thorough inspection and found some good, but also very bad/ sad news.

The electrical and inning had been rehabbed at some point. Wiring and pipes were all in great shape.

The fas lines showed some wear.

However, I found frame rot. Many 1"-2" sized holes through the front and rear of the frame. The middle was in very good shape.

I ended up passing on the trailer for now, but may revisit after my trip.

I have some pics of the outside which I will try to post.

Thanks again for your advice and homely I'll be back with a project in the near future
