    i've been looking at tailers. it seems some have plywood;3/4 on floor, 3/8 on walls untreated(intertsate). the H&H 3/4 treated floor, mohogany walls. but thet want like $650 more.

    i believe the cargo hauler has some type of a vanier.

    i notices some you have your enlosed painted white inside did that come stock?

    Our UXT enclosed 14' that we bought last fall had a plywood floor. Not sure of thickness. It recieved a linseed oil application before we did much with it. The linseed is something that can be re-applied as needed. There's other things out there too, but that's what we used. The underside came painted/sealed, so we didn't worry about that.

    The walls are 1/2" (I think) MDF (medium density fiberboard), with some sort of white verneer/coating.

    As long as the underside is coated/painted, if the walls are what you want, the inside floor can be treated before you put anything in it........

    When I had my enclosed trailer a few years ago the floor and walls were untreated when I bought it,so what I did was got a gallon of sealer and put a couple of coats on it to protect the wood.
