Do all Great Dane trailers have silver roofs or can they be white ? I all ready striped the chrome off the front end and rear doors .

They usually leave the roof bare aluminum but I don't see any reason why it couldn't be painted. I'm sure thee are trailers out there with painted roofs. The most likely would have the trailer number painted on the roof as well so it could be spotted by helicopter?

That sounds good to me Ben Thanks, I'll go with a white roof.

I used to fix great dane trailers and unless they are painted fleet colors you will find them bare aluminum or coated with a clear (which becomes quite grey) weather sealer.
