    Default Water-proof sealing and non-slip coating for trailer floor ???

    To all,

    Just got a Carry-On 6x12 enclosed trailer. I want to put a non-slip, water-proof coating on the floor.

    Can anyone recommend anything like that for wood? I'll likely be putting only dirt bikes/supermotos in the trailer. Mild use, not a workhorse. But I want to seal/protect the floor.

    Thanks,
    Barry

    That does sounds like a good idea.

    We looked a doing that. The only reason we didn't is that linex or rhino liner are heavy.

    We ended up just doing the krylon garage floor treatment kit. Works great. Has held up to 2 full races seasons + lots of off season racing.

    but it's worth it's weight in gold. if it ever tears or gets damaged it gets repaired for free. plus its resistant to just about every chemical known to man. you could ask the dealer to spray a thin coat if you were really that worried about the weight.

    Does that stuff hold up on wood? I've only seen it on metal.

    I looked at doing Line-X when my trailer was new. No problem going over wood, according to the installer I was talking to, and he'd done a bunch of snowmobile trailers with great success. He quoted me around $600.00 IIRC to do my 16' enclosed and couldn't get to it for several weeks, so I just used two part epoxy floor paint (has worked great and very durable for the past year).

    I DON'T recommend vinyl floor tile/sheet even though it looks great. If you get the slightest bit of water on it the floor is as slippery as ice. I had it in my 20' Pace and that was one of the reasons I sold the trailer! Of course, I find myself frequently loading/unloading in rainy or snowy weather.

    what brand of epoxy did you use? i'm thinking about using garage floor epoxy with the rubber pieces you can add.

    Look into Benjamin-Moore M55 Non-Skid coating. Industrial Latex coating, comes in purty colors... 3 shades of gray are available !

    Anti-Slip Latex Coating M55

    A high-traction coating designed to provide asphalt, concrete and wood surfaces with the maximum in safe footing in all types of weather conditions. This coating is formulated with epoxy modified acrylic resin for excellent abrasion resistance to heavy foot traffic, chopped fiber glass for film building, and an anti-slip aggregate for safe footing. It also offers excellent durability and color retention. For best appearance, Anti-Slip Latex Coating (M55) should be applied by squeegee and/or roller.

    Barry,
    Use a name brand spray in or the epoxy. Whatever you do don't use the inexpensive roll on stuff. I have had both Duplicolor and Herculiner on wood and they don't hold up well after a season. That stuff from Moore sounds good too. Of course the most important thing with a wood floor is the prep since its prone to splintering.
