Anyone have experience with this product, for anything, or specifically to refinish a boat trailer white?

Seems like it would be a nice bulletproof coating. I'm not clear how much you would need for a trailer.

I used a can of regular old semi gloss Rustoleum on mine this weekend.

I’ve not used the Whitecote, but I have used the POR-15 Chassis Black (on a jeep chassis) and the Silver (driveway gate latches). I don’t have the jeep anymore but 10+ years later, out in the North West weather 12 months of the year, the latch is showing some rust in the wear areas. I think it is pretty amazing stuff. S

I used the POR-15 black on my trailer (comes in grey/clear/black) after I removed all loose paint by sanding/wire brushing/needle gunning. Not bare metal....
You really need to follow the instructions for this coating system exactly. It is intended to lock in rust. I have gotton good results.

After two coats of POR-15, 2nd coat within 16-24 hours, very important, I put 2 top coats of beige enamel because the POR-15 basically has no UV protection. I'm quite happy with the results.

It's not cheap stuff...but for me I don't want spend the time to do that again, so it's worth it so far.
