Line-X on your trailer floor?

Just picked up another enclosed trailer, and wanted to see if anyone here has actually had their floor sprayed with Line-X or Rhino (or another commercial application).

Not looking for home remedies, what kind of paint you used, vinyl, etc.. Only if anyone actually laid down the $$$ and has personal experience with a "real" commercial spray-in liner on their wooden floor.

I've never had it done on one of my trailers, but I'm all but certain I will be with this one (appointment scheduled in 4 days)

There honestly isn't a whole heck of a lot of information on the interwebz regarding this; I assume because it isn't cheap and most people don't believe it's worth it, and the ones I have seen, the pics aren't that great.

Personally, for what these trailers cost, and considering their use, I think spending extra money to protect your investment pays off now, later and ultimately when it's time to sell.


So... Anyone have personal experience with your trailer floor being commercially lined?

Never done it myself but definitely subscribed to see the responses. If other people have had good results with it I may just try this myself.

I looked at having mine done last year. It was 4800 for rhino and over 5k for linex when the trailer cost 5500 I didn't find it worth it. My oldest trailer is still holding up good and it on it 6the season with wood floor

Herculiner here. Did it myself. Base coat was black. Last coat was Gray. If the wood is clean prep is easy. Just need to touch up a few areas.

Must use filtration charcoal breathing filter or else.

Line-X on your trailer floor?

Was quoted. 3k for 7x14x2 ft rhino liner. I have it in my truck not real impressed or maybe I just work it to hard.

Havent done a full trailer but I will tell you I have a fellow work for me who used to analyze polymers for a living. I am getting a pu done he recommed the Line X product over the Rhino based on the different ingredients in Line X vs Rhino

Are you just doing the floors or a foot up the walls and the ramp. This price was for a 8x18 up the walls the floor and ramp

I was quoted between $1500 and $2000 for my 18' enclosed. That was doing the floor and up about a foot on both sides. I have decided to check other options.

A friend of mine had his done. Only big negative he said is if you have a gas spill or anything like that, its dangerously slick.

I'm only doing the floor. I paid an extra $125 on my trailer when built for a layer of white wall overlay on the sides - because I've never had a problem pulling mowers out without hitting the walls

I wouldn't pay those price quotes either. I struggled with the decision at $800.
