    Painting a RV

    I want to paint my tailgating mobile with Cyclone colors but have read about 30 different opinions on how to do it and what to use. Has anyone done this successfully or know enough about paint to provide their recommendations on what to use?

    Thanks in advance.

    I used house paint on my bus - it looked shiny and fabulous for about 2 years. Now it's starting to dull and flake off. But then again, it's stored outside, so the paint probably would have lasted a lot longer with a roof over it.

    What does a player of your caliber (DJK) need with an RV? Do a little pregame tailgating prior to pregame warmups?
