After 2000k on a mud and gravel road the rough finish on the storage box will never look new no matter how long you scrub and how stiff the brush is ( has a yellowing tinges ) . It's just ware and tare , maybe after a few years fresh paint would help . But what type ? the upper half is hit by passing cars and trucks , mostly on the drivers side.
Got some of them already . They don't look new for ever . If you use them.

I think you'll find Krylon Fusion spray paint in Dover White is what you're looking for. It's made for plastic, so it will stick and it's a colour match to my eye.
Just watch for over spray. You don't want to get it on your plastic lens glasses.

I think that's the same color of Fusion paint some folks use to spray the propane tank cover. That bright white (from the factory.. NOT ETI) doesn't match the trailer

I have found that big damaging rocks (we lose a lot of windshields to them here) are far more commonly tossed by oncoming traffic, or by same-direction traffic in adjacent lanes, than by the vehicle directly ahead. Staying back is good, but cannot avoid all damage.

It is the paint I and others have used on the propane cover ( which is a blue white ). I has stood up to time, and is easy enough to re-spray.

Here is link to original thread:
Propane Tank Cover - White no more...

The rough box surface is a spray-on bedliner; ETI used to contract out the spraying locally. Not sure if it's Line-X or Rhino brand.

Just out of curiosity, could spray-on bed liner be applied directly to the vulnerable, front of the trailer?

It has been done. Think it cost around $500. For another $200, you get the box.

I'm relieved to know that the box has the spray on liner. It's well worth the expenditure of it saves the trailer and keeps our heavy, dirty outside hardware safe and outside the trailer.

Box also has drain holes, so toss in your wet stuff!
