Painting a boat trailer. What kind of paint?

After my car project is finished I am having my boat trailer media blasted and I am going to repaint it. What kind of paint do you think would provide the best corrosion protection and durability. I was actually thinking about using truck bed coating but it seems kind of expensive. Trying to do this on a budget.

marine enamel.. I see your in ny, not sure if you have a Passonno paints near you, but they have pretty decent marine enamel.. my dad painted his boat with it years ago, right over the original starcraft yellow with only light sanding, and it held, and as far as I know still holding as, the boat was sold a few years ago..

Well I did mine with epoxy primer covered with single stage urethane.
I don't think you can find a tougher paint than urethane.
I have been so impressed by its durability that I painted my
aluminum fishing boat with it.
It really has held up better than I would have ever expected.

Kirker makes pre-packaged urethane in many different colors
It's what I used-good stuff.

A good epoxy and a name brand single stage urethane paint will make your efforts worth while. Boat trailers catch h3ll and if you are going to go to the expense of a media blast, then use a quality paint system.
