    Hey all...
    I have read the threads here about some that have either installed themself or had a bedliner material sprayed on the floor and a little up the wall of their enclosed trailer. I chatted with our local Ford dealer about doing mine and they said the liner doesn't work on wood. Have any of you that had this done had any issues? Whose liner do you have>?? Thanks for the replies. I think this makes sense in the long run and the ability to hose out the floor would be real nice!!

    I covered the plywood floor of an enclosed snowmobile trailer with Herculiner. It is the best stuff out there- so tough the carbides and studs don't even touch it.

    i used some trash from a.m leanard, it works good now but was a pain in the ass to put down and was very expensive. great idea to protect your investment.

    I know the Linex dealer by me has a wooden axe handle coated to show customers. I painted my trailer floor with porch floor paint and it works fine for me. I would like to try the linex on my next trailer. It would waterproof the floor and sides, as well as protect the flooring.

    I talked with Line-X today and was assured their product made a waterproof bond to wood. Waiting to hear back on a price which may nix the idea...hoping not though!!!

    i just bought 2 herculiner truck kits. I am planning on buying some 3/8in plywood and cutting a 12in wide piece for along both sides, and coating it plus the floor and rear ramp.

    That's what I did a year ago. Since my trailer wasn't new I put down a sheet of subfloor material so I knew it would stick good. Used 1.5 gal. on 7x18 and went 12 in. up walls and did ramp.We use the trailer for mowing every day and it has held up great. I spray it out with a hose.

    how about that garage floor stuff, the grey poly coat with the flakes in it (you sprinle on while wet) would that work?

    I've seen this done before. It works, but you're comparing apples to oranges here.
