the race guys use white paint to brighten it up rustoleum real thick oil based, cleans up nice when its done

and they checkerboard the floors to finish it off

Put tools and shelves in it and you won't even see the walls......:whistling

I covered the floor of my trailer with grey indoor-outdoor carpet which has held up well. I left the sides as is because of the racks and shelves.

I primed mine with a good stain blocker and top coated it with 2 coats of exterior Valspar 4300 White Latex. I really like oil base paints but I wanted a quick turn around. This paint I have used and seems to hold up good.

Use a garage floor epoxy for the floor. Paint the walls or change the ply with a white 1/4 melamine

Have you ever heard of RhinoLining?
If not, you should look into it.
It's sprayed on and extremely durable.
Don't know if it is offered in your area, but if so that's the way to go.
I bought my trailer 7 years ago and Rhinolined it immediately.
It still looks like it did when I first got it done.
It's pretty popular here.
Comes in a variety of colors.
Beats all of the other methods.
I also did my truck bed.
Definitely check it out!!! :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:

I second the rhino lining type material. I went ahead and did rustoleums floor epoxy for walls and floors with the colored flakes on floor. Though it looked sweet, and a year lter still does, i would like the long term durability of the bedliner product.

paint will be the most effective way to do help you here man. It weighs the least out of everything too. And since OPEC'KERS are keeping the price up.. erry little bit helps.
