...... any colour you wanted what would you choose?

I'm repainting mine and I've just stumbled across the world of tractor paint and the wonderful array of colours, wow!

I can't believe people paint their trailers such dull colours with tractor paint at their disposal :)

I'd probably go for the same colour as the car towing it because I'm a bit sad and having them match would please me!
I have a little lorry though so I've had to make do with matching horse's travel rug to the lorry...

i turned a blue trailer into a red with black accents trailer, it looked super smart when I had finished and sold very easily.

Mines currently standard IW silver which does have the merit of matching my towing vehicle (a Shogun) ... But as I have a highland pony, maybe get it done out in tartan!

Fire engine red to match the tow car!

I actually have some white Bateso and have been meaning to replace the yellow stripe with a red one to compliment the truck

Ours is flourescent pink and we get a tenner a year off the insurance as its hard to steal. We bought it from a family that did pony parties so it had balloons and cartoon ponies on it too. we kept the ponies and dispensed with the balloons. Everyone loves it

My trailer is plain, boring white (blank canvas :D ) which happens to match the plain, boring white Titan.
However, as I am out and about a lot this summer, and my business is all about serious colour that can be seen from a distance then my trailer will be getting a face lift, free advertising :D

Just have to choose something to put on it ...

Youd think so! But for some reason the most silly ones get stolen. I think sometimes just for fun.

On the other hand, who takes any notice of an IW passing by? Lurid colours at least draw attention and someone will notice it, even if only to think how ridiculous it looks :)

I have recently brought an old rice trailer. It has recently been repainted dark green but have been contemplating changing it to dark purple. May just do it when we finally get some nice sunny days.

ME! I literally window lick at any horse box. I can spot them a mile away. I'm rather obsessed, can tell the make, type and sometimes year :D

Wow pictures are great. I've been thinking about a light blue as well. Can't do two tone as the lines don't match up on my Richardson. Think it'll be grey with teal decor :)

Ifors don't seem to take to painting very well, I'm toying with doing mine as its getting rather scarred looking now after ten years of ownership, but seeing other peoples paint jobs puts me off.
