WBG,
If you want a really durable trailer, strip it down to the bare trailer and take it to a place that does sandblasting and baking and powder coating.

The first sand blast the trailer, then give it a good wash to get all of the sand blasting media off of the rig. Then, bake it to dry it out and then powder coat the trailer in the color of your choice.

When done properly, never a worry about finish again. It will cost a few $$$$$$$$$ but if you want a great looking trailer that is virtually bullet proof, tough to beat the finish.

Let your typing fingers do the searching through the internet to find the shop of your choice and enjoy the final product.

Take care

REW,

You are absolutely correct about this process going to cost a few $$$$$$$$$

Most folks don't have the equipment to load a bare trailer frame onto their flatbed and haul it to and from the powder coating facility. Plus many powder coating facilities with the capabilities to handle a project this big only accept new and/or pre-prepped work.
