Anyone have comments about this?
Sure, paint doesn't peel, unless you are doing it wrong. Plus look at the threads about recent gelcoats that have badly faded. The FR rep is full of it. Paint is expensive but better than plain gelcoat. I had plain gelcoat trailers, and I don't not miss the black streaks. We camp in the woods, in the north. If I was camping in the sun in the south, I would go with a light color or plain gelcoat.
Now if you just don't like it, your decision.
