    With this drought we are having here in southern Va., Ive been repainting and fixing up my 6x12 foot open trailer. This trailer is my spare trailer and one that I use about 1 day a week when I work in town and the 16 footer is to hard to get around with.
    My question is, have any of yall ever used a spray on lining like for the bed of a truck on the floor of the trailer to protect it? Does it make it too slick when its wet? Can you add a gritty substance to it for traction?
    Any help and insight to this is appreiciated :waving:

    I think that trailer applications of the Rhino stuff is mentioned on their website. Pretty sure at least, i was looking into it a little while back but when i saw how much it was just to coat a truck bed, i changed my mind. Just my 2 cents! Good luck!

    I believe that there is an off brand version of this stuff that is cheaper. It is for home applications.

    If you are looking for traction, Line-X hands down. :cool2:

    Thanx, I have a Line-x dealer in the cuty next to me, I may call them and see what they charge to coat a 6x12 trailer floor. I just didnt want something smooth that when it gets wet or damp ( morning dew) that I may slip on.

    Line X feels like sandpaper, nothing will slide around on it.

    I was thinking of caoting the roof of my apt building with that stuff. The building is 60'x 140'. Maybe I'd buy a franchise! :dizzy: To do it in "rubber membrane" is $10,000 just in material! How much would LineX cost me? I'll look into it... :cool2:

    Not sure, but they would have to move their entire shop setup to do it lol.

    My 8 x 20 enclosed trailer is done with Line-X and I love it.

    Certainly not any more slippery than bare wood or paint. I recommend it highly.

    I agree Line-X on my trailer floor was one of my better investments this year.
