Hi Guys,
Just did a search of trailer bed treatment & didn't find any comments in the first 4 pages. I just bought a new 82.5"X16' open trailer & am wondering if anyone does a treatment of the wolminized decking & what did you use? I know that the treated lumber is pretty tough but every used trailer I looked @ had the wood beds starting to rot.
Also, has anyone ever used contractor tool boxes as the storage box on their trailers? (i.e. Greenlee/ Ridgid). Waterproof, lockable, 2 bolts in the rail & roll it off.
Thanks
GREAT SITE

When I bought my trailer 3 years ago, the guy at the dealer said to use thomson's water seal. He said coat the top, but not the bottom, so it can 'breath'. He said if i did that it would "last forever". Have not tried it though.

I have a sixteen foot trailer that I used deck stain on. It lasts about two year before it starts to wear off.
p.s. I used the kind that has extra sealant in it.
