Default replacing wood on an open trailer

Hey,

i have a 4 place open trailer and i am looking at replacing the wood on it. it is seasoned and the carbides have taken its toll on it.

thought about rhino lining the wood before i install it. just wondering if anybody out there had tried that and had success/failure.

looking for longevity against carbide wear on the top and weathering on the top and bottom. hoping it doesn't make it slippery as i have seen some truck beds that are like ice when wet.

Haven't done the truck bed liner on a trailer but I know a few guys have done it. Have you done a search on this topic???

I redid the plywood on my two place last fall and it turned out really good. I ended up utilizing plywood and put all new ski guides and traction mats on. Along with that I stained / sealed the wood, which the stain made the deck pretty unique.

Just remember, you there are certain "green treated" ply woods you cannot use and place against aluminum. Some green treated ply wood will actually start to corrode once it's placed against to aluminum. I would have to do some checking as to which one was the one to avoid. The correct one was not hard to find as our local lumber yards and Mendards had it on hand.

I'll see if I can find that info.

Haven't done any searches. Just figured I would ask around on a few different sites and see what others have to say. I figured if I rhino lined the plywood I wouldn't have to buy green treated wood

From what I've seen and heard about truck bed liners and trailer decking, the commercial grade stuff is the way to go. Most guys that have used the "do it yourself" kits have not had the best of luck or it doesn't hold up as good.
