VHT frame and chassis paint is what we use. I usually wait until I get enough area needing attention to justify my time redoing. Just redid back bumper, mounts and part of rear frame. They had painted straight over chunks of rust.

I think any descent paint is fine. Rustoleum is in my cabinet as well.

I might be a little hesitant to use that stuff as it would not show what is going on underneath it for a year or two and could cause more problems. Just my thoughts

I had similar rust problems.
I sanded down the back bumper and resprayed it with multiple coats of black paint.
I removed the stabilizers, sanded them down, coated with 2 coats of DOM16 (a product similar to POR15), then coated with automotive undercoating, then a couple of coats of black paint.
For the tongue I sanded down and coated with 3 coats of black DOM16.

So far no rust showing again.

If these treatments work OK I'll tackle the frame next summer.

I have sprayed the parts of the frame I can get to with WD40 after every wash and sometimes more often than that. It has kept the frame from rusting thus far. It may not be the best solution but it has worked for me.

Part of my annual maintenance is touching up paint. Wire brush and rattle can style. It's quick and easy.

I definitely understand that this is a maintenance issue but I think it's almost robbery that we are even paying for the paint on these frames. In my opinion it should last at least 2yrs before any major rust begins. I feel like my brand new trailer already looks 10yrs old.

I would love to see some pictures of how bad the rust is on some of these new trailers.

As for materials, I like POR 15. As for anything you put on the rusty metal, if you do not do the prep work, it will come back.

I went on a trip from MD to OH a couple of weeks ago for a bit of a family emergency - all along the way, I saw many transports (you can tell cause the type of TV doesn't match the TT, nose up or down, being towed at high speeds) and every one of them was covered top to bottom in salt and chemicals... made me glad we bought ours in the middle of summer and it was towed when the weather was good!
