Enclosed trailer build

Starting an enclosed trailer build and looking to put a protection on the floor, any recommended products? I did look through the prior posts but did not locate anything. Thanks in advance for the help!

If your trailer has a steel floor then it is worth considering ’ Intershield 300 ’ made by International Paints.
Two part pure epoxy designed for marine applications.
Requires proper surface preparation as described in TDS.

The standard cargo trailer, three-quarter inch plywood flooring with a steel frame.

I think past threads have indicated raptor liner and deck over. It might be worthwhile searching for those terms. :+1:

If I had it to do over again I’d go with raptor liner. Deck over wore okay, but not great.

I’ve had good luck with deck over

If it works for you stick with it. I just know that mine so shows every little stain, soaks up oil drops from the machines during an oil change, won’t clean worth a hoot, and where the bleach tank is it’s pearl white and the wood is rotting away.

It’s not the best I’m sure but it has worked for me. had I had the time and money I would have taken it and had it linexed before I remounted everything. I was trying to get back to work as fast as I could. I’m slowly but surely reducing the amount of bleach I use because I’m trying to do more commercial and reduce the residential. for the first time that I can remember a lady called me this morning because a olive tree is loosing some leaves from a house wash I did last week. I thought to myself that I will be glad not to have to deal with OCD Homeowners. she was out there when we were putting her stuff back on the patio saying (move it about 2 inches to the left or 3 inches to the right and so on. I’m really focusing on commercial flatwork and storefront window cleaning even if I have to slow down and not make as much for a while and grow it a little slower

I went to Lowes and got some kitchen vinyl flooring off one of their giant rolls. It was a bear having to glue it down but it’s quite durable.

Has anyone on here used or thought of composite decking ? Just wondering how it would hold up

I can see how Trex might hold up, sure.

My main concern was water leakage rotting the existing floor so I opted for the vinyl.

Yeah,sorry to derail on an enclosed trailer topic. I was thinking it be useful on an open trailer.

Thanks all! I’ve decided to go with Raptor floor lining. I have a couple compressors and I can get all the product plus an air gun for about $450 from Amazon, less if I don’t do the under carriage of it. I called LineX and received a quote for $1800 for an 7x14 with a ramp door interior only. @Hotshot I agree Trex would hold up but make sure you have 16" OC floor supports and remove the original floor. It would be a great way to have air movement with in the trailer!

Nah @SafeServices , I misread you topic,my bad. I was thinking of composite on an open trailer. I think if you apply that theory to an enclosed trailer it would defeat the purpose of a rain tight,and semi debris free trailer, plus it be hard to keep your rig warm in the winter with a barn heater to winterize.
