I tried that tub paint on a steel bathtub in my home, and it was a horrible experience brushing it on. It would not go on without really bad brushstrokes.

I later paid to have the same tub sprayed, and the spray job was perfect.

YMMV

i didn't have a sprayer so i used a small roller. it worked ok but would have had a much better finish with a sprayer. it has more of a "textured" finish but it looks fine. i would have preferred a smother finish.

Thanks!

Thanks for your reply. Just knowing that it really could come out in one piece gave us the courage to try again.It only took a little while on the 2nd try. What type of black water tank do you have? Is it the original, or did you get something else? We are thinking of using a used aluminum fuel tank. Has anyone tried this?

Chemicals in a black water tank, will attack aluminum.

Plastic, fiberglass and stainless steel, are all ok for a black water tank.

i used a plastic tank but it was aftermarket and much larger than the original. i think it is 34 gallon. i piped my grey water into it as well. i have valve so that i can shut off the grey water and catch it in a tote if needed. ive never need to do that yet. i just keeep a close eye on the tank. it was difficult to find the right tank..some were to tall some to wide, etc..i finally found one that just barely fit. it seems like there are some posts about it but it has been so long i dont quite remember.

Bathroom renovations

Hi Bob

What did you paint your tub with? We're in the middle of doing the bathroom in our 1965 Safari and the tub, sink and bench are looking pretty bad.

Thanks!

JoAnn Smith

I can't get the links to your photo albums to work, but I'm desperate to see the remodel. I'm in the same situation myself.

Great job...and a question

Loved seeing the results of a lot of hard work on your trailer. I too am going to swipe some of the ideas for our 1966 when we get to it. I would really like to get a kitchen sink like yours for the trailer. Where did you get it if you don't mind my asking?
Thanks.
Sandy

We used "Tough As Tile" epoxy paint from Homax. Brushed it on but very important to maintain above 72 degrees for several days curing time. We are very pleased with the results and did not have to remove anything.

Different Bathroom layout..

We had the old fiberglass tub/sink removed and shifted the toilet/sink to the side. The shower is now a stand-up shower with a bench.

I don't remember where I found it. I googled round sink and it popped up somewhere. If I remember it was about 80 bucks. We are really happy with it. It is very deep.
