For those of you that have enclosed trailers, what type of protectant do you use for the floors???? I have a 20' enclosed that I just bought, and it is an all wood floor, and I am looking for something along the lines of a rhino line material. Something durable and something that has some grit for traction. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I just orderder a 20' enclosed, I'm getting treated plywood on the floor and ramp. I wanted to do the bed liner but it was about 1k to spray a 8.5x20.

I'm planning to paint the walls after I get it.

go to a pepboys or tractor supply co and get herculiner brand do it yourself bedliner. i just did a 7' x 16' enclosed with 1 gallon kit it cost around 80.00. it looks awesome and is pretty thick. follow the directions and it should go ok.

Fire,

Did you have to sand the floor or anything like that? how hard was it to do and how long did it take? THanks.

i did not sand my floor. I put on a light coat, let it sit overnight and then put on a second coat. just make sure floor is clean and dry. the only problem i had was 1 spot where i did not let floor dry and i had to re do a square about 1 foot. if you get a kit dont use the roller that comes with it go ahead and get a regular width roller and a log handel. it kills back bending over to do it. Each coat took approx 30 min to 1 hour to complete. Got estimate from rhino liner for 800.00 to do what i did.

I got a quote from Rhino Liner and they were charging anywhere from $600-$1800, depending on thickness. I then checked with Zeibart, and they quoted me $3600. Obviously, Zeibart did not want the job. I will be doing it myself. Is there a difference in the paint roller that the Herculiner kit provides, or is it just a standard roller. I have an extended roller pole that I will use. Thanks.

I got a quote on a Wells Cargo, and they offer a spray liner from the factory for $3600. :eek:

saw the herculiner today at vip I think that what I am going to use on mine. cabelas had one where you hook it up to a compressor that run about 200.00 to do a 20 footer.

I also have a 20footer. Im selling it though.

IMO. its a trailer, Im not worried about the floor getting some oil spots. The exterior gets washed weekly and the interior gets blown out after every day that we use it. A few oil spots are not a big deal, I dont see why some of you guys would care about it. But to each his own...

The only thing I can see doing is rhino lyning the ramp door for extra grip when its raining and/or the wet.

I had Line-X on the floor of my last trailer. It was well worth it. I paid right around $600 to have my 8x18 done.

FIRECAPT,

you said you used a larger roller with the extended handle. What type of roller did you use? I tried all over today to find a large roller the same type as is in the kit, and couldn't find anything close to the same texture. What type did you use and how did it turn out? Hows the texture and traction? Thanks.
