I need some advise on what color to paint my trailer. I'm wanting green with yellow pin stripes but I was told I should paint it yellow. Here is a picture of the lettering on my truck so you can see my business colors.


Here is a picture of my trailer now.


Let me know what you think.

Your equipment looks great!

If you really want to change the color, sell it and order one the color you want. I have done a great deal of painting in the past and in order to change the red to yellow or green you will have to do a great deal of sanding to assure adheasion of the paint. Time=money.

In addition you will need to buy a quality paint, all my other business uses is Dupont, and then you will have to have a paint booth or a good calm warm day.

Good Luck.

With a white truck? Your trailer should be white. A white trailer is not all that common, but is always extremely clean and professional looking.

IMO green or black. White will get dirty QUCK especially with the equiptment going on and off.

Ummm...I didnt vote because there is not a "neither" category. In my opinion, trailers should either match the truck, or be black. I think a green or yellow trailer would look, just, bad. That, or leave it how it is.

I I had to choose between yellow or green, I would go with green. But, if my choice would be black, just because trailers get scratched easy and just about any black spray paint in a can will touch it up nicely.

White shows rust really well, I'd recommend black, or possibly green, but maybe get a professional powder coat. They'll sandblast it and everything.

Why waste your time. Leave it alone. If you paint it, any scratch in the paint will bring it down to the red again. Just buy some red rustolium and spot spray it if you have rust spots.

I'd agree. Leave it the way it is. As long as it's not a rusted-out heap, there's nothing there to turn anyone off as to the way it looks.

If you HAVE to re-paint it, I'd say green. I agree with Joe that white looks best, but my opinion is that is for a fully enclosed trailer. On a semi-open mesh trailer like that, I think white would look funny. And it will get green anyhow with grass stains.

Yellow would be hideous in my opinion.

How about leaving it like it is and put some red on your vinyl to tie it together. That would be alot easier/cheaper that painting it.

I think it looks fine like it is...........if I was changing colors I would go with black

Looks great just like you have it - very professional - should draw attention when you are driving around or working someplace!

someone on here who is a member has a yellow trailer and it is damn sharp maybe you should have made your lettering red on the truck or someother color as its always easier to change logo colors than a whole trailer anyone who has seen my pics know i like the color red .. red trucks and trailer trailer has signs that are green and white
