Enclosed Trailer Sealer

I just bought a 7x16 Lark enclosed trailer for a lawn care business - i need to seal the inside wood - My Dad wants me to primer it then paint the walls white but black 18 -20 inches up from the ground with an industrial enamel. I like the natural wood look and want to just seal the walls clear with the black the 18-20 inches from the ground - wondering what everyone has used to protect the wood inside their trailers?

Do you do any fertilizations? I would not do white light gray but not white.

I don't think you should put anything on it. It tends to get beat up.

We rolled rhino linner 18 inches up the sides and floor/ ramp. Then painted the walls with outdoor paint. It easy to clean up spills and the floor doesn't soak up oils.

If you want clear, I always like Behr at HD. You can actually apply it with a pump sprayer and back roll any drips. Will take around 15 min. You can always paint it later if you dont like the clear look.

If used fence post paint from tractor supply. It's cheaper than rhino liner and is very durable. It's very grippy also. I paint the floor and went up the sides 6 inches on my enclosed trailer. I don't use it now because I have a NPR box truck but the fence post paint is black and is very durable. I really like using it as traction paint also on the wood ramps. It's cheap too.

no matter what color you paint it it's going to look like crap in 2 months if you want to use a sealer on the floor that's a good idea but your going to have to do that every year. Just my thoughts good luck

i painted the floor in my enclosed trailers with behr porch and floor paint. i painted the walls white. it makes the interior brighter. sealed plywood would make the interior dreary imho. I wash and scrub it out with a pushbroom out and bleach wite once a year and apply another coat on it. it looks fine.

I did my floor with Pittsburgh Paints Revitalize from Menard's. That stuff is pretty amazing for its durability and how it fills voids and cracks. And, did my walls in oil-based primer and paint. Latex will not withstand trailer abuse, so don't waste your time. I did mine, July '13, and it still looks like new. Pick on the hyperlink in my signature to see what it looks like.
