    Does anybody have a rough idea how much it would cost to get linex done on the entire floor and 2 feet up on the side walls in inside of an enclosed 8x16 w/ v nose trailer? How much cost difference would you think between that and a 7x16?

    I'd say about $1500 for the 8x16 and $1200 for the 7x16. If you have both done at the same time, you may be able to get a better price. But I can't imagine you will spend any less than $2000 for both of them, I'd honestly price it closer to $2500-$3000.

    Just to line-x my current truck, it was $475 (short bed truck) and my old truck was $1000 (long bed, service body). Line-x is expensive stuff but is real nice.

    Well a 6' truck bed is $425-475 so I would use that as a starting point to guestamate.

    Thts going to add a lot of weight to the trailer. I used garage floor paint with grit in it and added a cup of play sand to each gal.

    My HD has a new product for decks that looks and feels like linex but it is made for wood. I am going to roll my open trailer. If the above guys are right on the cost my question would be how much is the spray rig and chemical to spray your own.

    I don't know why I didn't mention this earlier...

    Line-x does offer more products, outside of their traditional bedliner spray. They have a whole variety of products to do floors with. I have never looked into those products but can only imagine that those products are much more economical for your application and should do everything that you want. If you can find a line-x dealer that offers these products and doesn't just do the bedliners, I would talk to them about that.
