Camper Build IX

The basic build of the folding camper is complete. The panels are insulated and I have begun painting. I decided not to fiberglass. I am using a high quality house paint, The painting and finishing takes time and you can spend as much or as little on it, but it is directly proportional to how it will look in the end. I am trying to strike a balance because I want it get it on the truck and use it soon.

The top, front and side panels will be ultra white. It is taking between 3 and 4 coats to get good thick coverage. The bottom half and underside will be either black or desert tan, maybe forest green, I am still deciding. The inside may not get painted until I use it a few times but I plan to urethane the floor. The interior walls may be what ever color of extra paint I have from other house projects :-)
