I can see where the trim at the bottom of the cap was masked off, but the paint seems to extend under the window trim.
So, was the front endcap painted from the factory (the beige does match pretty well), or was this done by a previous owner? I assume a good primer and paint will cover the old finish pretty well. I seen the Sherwin Williams primer mentioned in a few posts.
And if I decide to refiish the rear endcap, is there a finish that will hold up in the shower area and sink?
Thank in advance for your help. TomE
The end caps in your trailer are made with fiberglass and are "gel coated," which is a fiberglass paint, that does not peel off.
The paint that is coming off, was applied by a previous owner.
Remove all the paint before you attempt to refinish. Then you must sand the headliners, not scuff, but sand.
Apply primer, let it age up for a few days, and then paint the primer with a "HIGH" quality paint.
If you use some cheap paints, you will create more problems for yourself.
