Shellac is another good choice to protect the wood. I did a wooden liner for a trailer with shellac and it still looked good after 4 years when I sold the trailer. It was a light brown colour.

I'm surprised because Shellac by itself is only a sealer and not waterproof unless it has an additional coat of poly or something.

Thanks, and I will.

Thanks.

Today I received in the mail a set of helper springs that Bill ( HDWildBill ) graciously sent me. I was a bit skeptical they would do much after looking at them but I installed one and it noticeably makes that side a bit stiffer. I need to grab a second U bolt to install the other one but I'm interested to see how much they improve the carrying capacity.

Thanks Bill.

That's right! Hmmm... it's been 8 years. My memory isn't what it used to be. It was 1" rough pine and I probably put some exterior poly over it. The trailer held up really well but I did keep it under cover in the winters.
