Far better results with standard Rustoleum in a quart can and a cheap-o spray gun; thinned to "hot syrup'' viscosity.

I think I might just pay the money this year and have my whole trailer "rhino lined" That stuff is pretty strong.

What do you mean by thinning it to hot syrup capacity? Just add paint thinner to it? how much?

Add mineral spirits and stir until it is the same viscosity as hot syrup.
Still sticky, but mostly drippy.

It's thicker than you would normally use for a good finish; but good for trailers with all thier nooks and crannies to spray into. It also keeps the spray mist to a minimum.

With my setup, I generally don't use anymore than 10-15 PSI for utility grade work.
