1- Did you consider and/or use Rustoleum to paint your bus?
Yes I considered it, and that is what I used...
2- If you considered it, but didn't use it....why not? What did you use?
3- How did you apply it?
First of all, I had to mix it down a little according to instructions on the side of the can, the mix-down was 15% Acetone to thin it a little... I then used a HPLV sprayer and did the paint job outdoors. It came out very well, only found 1 bug stuck to it.
4- How long ago did you paint your bus?
I think it was 3+ years ago...
5- How do you feel it's held-up, including any problems like flaking, fading, chipping, staining, chaulking, etc. Please list any problems you had I didn't mention.
Rustoleum is great stuff if you want something that will stick to anything. So with that in mind I did NOT do any sanding on my bus, I simply wiped it down with Acetone to remove any prior (yellow) oxidation, dirt-grime, etc... I had a couple of spots where it did chip with contact by a tool or hard object. I also had some flake off where the Roof A/C run-off had dripped all summer long. Though it seemed like it would loose it's shine, all I had to do was wash it and it would shine again. I did notice that in the last couple of months the front valence over the drivers windshield was oxidizing or chalking, and some of the oxidization would run down the windshield and leave white streaks on the glass...wiped up easily though.
6- Would you use it again for an overall paint? Why or why not?
If I was willing to sand the bus first, I'd use an automotive paint. But that is a lot of surface to try and sand. Not sure I'd use it again or not, I could see it developing some issues...but it otherwise worked well enough.
