From what I have read the solvent-based version is much better than the water base version. The above is the solvent (oil base?) version.
Yep, thats the good stuff.

Yep I think I'll add some sort of a fold-down or at least stowable bed arrangement once I have the flooring taken care of.

I have all sorts of **** planned for my gutted 24'. I'm using the linex base dusted with abrasive media and diamondplate in the rear. I also plan on partitioning the hauler in the front for awesome living quarters... including drop down bed/futon, refrigerator, HVAC split system (heat pump), wide screen wall mount, auto-tuning satellite, carpet, maybe even a ****/shower combo.... a rolling bachelor pad

Can't forget about the grill either!

Dark commercial carpet will work best... might not be the softest about will hold up longer.

Well I decided to go with a two-part solvent based epoxy. After much reading and deliberating I went with Sherwin-Williams Armorseal 1000
ArmorSeal 1000 HS Epoxy - Protective & Marine

It is normally used for concrete floors but many have used it on plywood trailer floors with good success. Enough mix for two gallons costs about $150; it comes in two one gallon containers (epoxy and activator) which are mixed together 1:1. I am laying it down in two coats and applied the first coat tonight (only mixing 1 gallon). The plywood really soaked up the first coat so the second coat will definitely be needed to smooth it out. I am rolling it on. Pics later.

You definitely want to use this stuff in a WELL ventilated area. I had the back ramp and the side door both open, with a light wind blowing through, and the fumes were still quite powerful.

My trailer floor is carpet, I live in a double-wide.

I called DuPont on their expoy garage kit when at HDracing, they said not to use it as it would crack at the floor seams. Let us know how it goes - still have to do mine, still thinking of linex stuff.

Yep SW told me the same thing, but others have had good success with the same stuff in enclosed trailers with plywood floors, reporting that after several years it is still OK.
