Finishing off the inside of a trailer... - June 1, 2013, 01:37 PM

I have a bare wood inside enclosed trailer that I just got and I would like to finish it off for better longevity and use. Just took an unsuccessful trip to Home Depot and been surfing all over the net and not sure what to do.

I have the essentials covered - shore power hookup, two flourescent lights, two dual plug setups, Pitbull TRS systems, and some E Track.

What would you recommend for finishing the floor and walls? Any good places to find a 13,500 BTU A/C unit (the roof is already braced for a unit)? Other recommendations from your experiences?

DuoTherm/Dometic on Sale! - Adventure RV

This is where I was looking to source one. The 13000 stuff is around $500, but I was actually looking at a low profile. I'm not sure how much that matters. I also talked to the guys at Reines off I66 but never bothered to push much, they may be able to get you into something cheaper.


SV650s for SALE!!!
- 2007 SV650 Racebike-Superbike KWS/Thermosman suspension/Swenz bodywork/All GSXR Parts
- 2009 SV650 Streetbike Race blue with white stripe/No wrecks/fully faired with M4 full system

Shoot me a PM or talk to Nate (Nudist) if you're interested in purchase.

This stuff : 4 ft. x 8 ft. White .090 FRP Wall Board-MFTF12IXA480009600 at The Home Depot

is fiberglass reinforced plastics...it'll take a direct hit from anything and not flinch; use it for the walls; it'll keep the inside brighter; NOTHING sticks to it, everything just wipes right off and it won't allow dents and dings in the walls. The stuff is REALLY tough.

It goes up with construction adhesive and there's different trim and corner strips to keep things neat; they get cut to size with simple shears. Sheets get cut with a plastics blade on a jig saw.

Does it have the rear door that lowers to become a ramp? I have a friend that has a trailer like that and he coated that with a no-slip paint. Not sure what's out there specifically, if there is stuff for wood vs concrete vs metal or whatever.

I had the floor and about 2 feet up the walls done with Line-X. It has held up pretty well after many seasons of serious dirt bike racing.

I wanted to add a deep cycle battery with a solar charger on the roof and replace the fluorescent lights with led running off the battery. Then I would always have light wherever it was parked. Not really racing anymore and will probably sell the trailer, so I am not going to bother with it.

What was the cost on that?

It was part of a sponsorship package, but as I recall it would have been $1200ish. It is based on square footage. You can buy the stuff by the gallon and do it yourself also for a good savings. Get into all the corners, cracks and crevices real good, and come up the wall a bit. Then you can just hose the trailer out if needed without worrying about getting the wood wet and rotting out.

Yea - I definately won't be putting that much $$ into just the flooring.

Anyone have experience with this stuff? Monstaliner do-it-yourself roll-on truck bed liner

I know a few guys who have painted their entire truck with that Monstaliner and it seems to be holding up well (these are off-road rigs)

Probably a lot more abuse than the inside of my trailer will see.

You can finish the floor and sides in Duplicolor Bed Armor. Works on wood, metal and fiberglass.

Good suggestion Dean... stuff is pretty $$ compared to some of the others.
