Rhino Liner in Dump Trailer?

Im thinking about getting another dump trailer. I was wondering if anyone had any experience with rhinolining the inside of the bed? Im just wondering if everything would slide well or if it would get hung up. The trailer is going to be a PJ D9 model 16', either pintle or gooseneck. Thanks, any help is appreciated.

I think I would use the plastic liner used for dump trucks. The bed liner will hang up loads and bust off after a while.

Rhino Liner in Dump Trailer?

You'll be cussing and swearing every time that trailer will have to be shoveled out because 3/4 of the load is stuck in it.

Like mentioned above get the plastic liner used in dump trucks/end dumps and if the trailer can lift it, it'll come out. Unless you do a lot of demo work then I would leave it and not tear the liner up.

Bad idea. The surface coated with Rhino Liner or other spray in is rough. The box on a dump be it truck or trailer needs to smooth and slick so the load slides out. I'd vote for the plastic liner.

Spray in liners work great. You can have them sprayed so the surface is slick.

I have been thinking about this same thing.
I am with R&R in his thinking. I sprayed Vortex liners for about 3 years. I made some of them slick as glass. It is all in the nozzle and the application technique.
I have already skinned most of the powdercoating off of my new trailer. I was just going to wait until after fall to make a decision as to painting it at the end of each season or spraying it (hopefully) one time. I will be interested to see how you like whatever you do.

A spray liner would be expensive and if you work your trailer much it will get scuffed up and not stay smooth. I have a 20' PJ dump. Do not get a bumper pull because they really suck compared to a gooseneck.

My PJ is built tough and has grossed out at as much as 33K. Anything over 20K and you had better spend $3800 for electric over hydraulic disc brakes like I did. Even at 33K it stops great. Always but more capacity then you think you will need.

I ended up buying a 83x16' bumper bull PJ on Friday. I took the one on the lot that had pretty much every single option except the extended sides which I will build myself. Very nice trailers, this is my second PJ. Thought about a gooseneck but didnt want to put a goose hitch on every truck.
