Painting my caravan

Hi there,

I bought a beautiful caravan recently that I want to repaint. I saw some videos on YouTube where they turned old caravans into new looking ones and now I want to give my caravan a fresh colour. I’ve done some research on the sort of paint I need and I think will I need to spray coach enamel. I’ve never used that sort of paint, but I assume I will need some sort of mask to protect myself from the paint fumes. Is a simple disposable respirator enough or do I need proper protection like this half-mask respirator when I work with enamel paint?

Has anyone of you ever renovated a caravan and has experience with painting the outside? Which paint do you use? I am thinking of a light green.

Cheers,
Chris

Chris’s enquiry also appears on the Practical Caravan forum, where there have been a few responses

GOOGLE offers advice about using coach enamel and on spray-painting masks

How good the mask will need to be will, to a degree, depend on where the spraying is to be done. In an enclosed shed wearing a high-quality mask will be very importantl: in the open air less so.

I’ve no hands-on experience of large area spraying tasks, though I remember becoming high as a kite after varnishing furniture in a small bedroom.
