Hello folks,
Just found this site and am excited it exists.
We are the FlamePainters, Jeannie & Jer from Northern New Mexico, up by the Colorado border, north of Taos.

Never owned an RV before. A year ago I inherited an old 1963 Shasta travel trailer. It sat on my property for 6 months till summer. I wondered what to do with the thing. Decided to clean it first, that took 3 weeks. WOW. It was gorgeous under all that dirt. So I spent the summer working on it. We discovered the grey stripe that ran around it was actually aluminum. Jer buffed it out till it gleamed. We were hooked. New hobby! I've spent the winter doing research. There are others out there with the same obsession! Next will be new paint. We are custom auto/bike painters so this isn't a big deal. Just deciding on the color scheme seems to be the hard decision. Then I discovered that the vintage nuts are going with themes. Ahhhhh, now another decision. I airbrush so now I'm thinking I've got a clean canvas to work on. I've spotted another vintage out on a ranch. Gotta work a deal for it. I think this could get to be a full-time hobby. I might be in trouble.

Interested in talking to other Vintage nuts but I'll talk with anyone for that matter. I'm hoping the vintage trailer people are as welcome here as the big riggers.

Since we are professional painters, we are happy to answer questions regarding paint or paint problems. Always like to contribute a little something to the group.

Happy New Year!
Jeannie

Finally figured out the picture gig.

Thanks for the Welcome!

This spring/summer we will be painting. The black buffing compound washed off, leaving a shiny stripe.
