Thank you both. That all makes sense to me and sounds simple and practical.

After reading my questions to you all I realize I am now guilty of what is called hijacking a thread, so in gonna shut up now. But I'm ever so grateful for everyone's opinions on their experiences to help me gather it all up, process and learn.

Cheers as I drink my after work beer,
Wendy

I am the original poster and I was the first one to tell you about POR-15. As far as Highjacking the thread.....it was all about the underside..so to me the frame still qualifies as the underside.

I have no desire to go through life looking like a Holstein.
You'd have to check with Larry, he's used it quite a bit on his Compact rebuilds and classic cars: Flooring and Frame Paint Advice?


and another post of his in the same thread, direct link: Flooring and Frame Paint Advice?

BillE, we've been wondering for a while if we should coat the bottom of our trailer with the truck bed lining. This was a very timely and appropriate topic for us; our trailer has a fiberglass bottom, however, some call it a "tub" and the plywood sits above it inside. So it probably wouldn't hurt to paint the fiberglass bottom and the rubberized coating should help at least some rocks bounce away without chipping. Right now we're patching dozens of chips and holes everywhere in the naked shell. Hope this thread has been helpful to you, all our very best on your brand new purchase...it'd be wonderful to have a brand new egg!


For YOUR situation, no, I wouldn't coat the plywood bottom. Not at this point, anyway, not with it brand new. It would be a good idea to contact the manufacturer and find out what their opinion is. They should have one!


Hope Darwin is kidding...I've seen some bullying threads, but this doesn't look like one of them. Nor did that seem like a hijacking, and your response to that was very kind and I appreciate all the good civility. If he IS kidding, then ha ha, good joke on me! I took it a bit too seriously! My bad. If he's NOT kidding, I refer him to the "sawdust toilet" thread to see some bullying in person--it's awesome! And the moderator did finally step in and call a halt...one of the most entertaining and cringe-worthy threads I've seen in six months.

Again, our very best to you and your new egg! Happy camping!

LOL...no bullying here ..I guess people don't know me...

I have to laugh...I was responding to a comment about Hi-jacking a thread...

To me ...it doesn't matter at all. I was saying I originally posted the question...someone asked about painting the frame...so I threw out use POR-15....I also said ...heck the frame is the bottom so there is no high jacking at all.

We all need to have a bit more tolerance and not take things so darn personal all of the time. I know Darral T is not bullying at all...

We are all here for the same thing...(well except maybe for that Floyd guy...you know he's from Illi-noise)

Lets all keep contributing and we will all get along fine...Spring time is coming!

BillE, I so agree with you. I am more of a lurker here, preferring to only jump in when so very interested I can't help myself. I guess I just see us all as great contributors in one way or another, but indeed have seen some pretty negative energy at times and don't understand why. My fear of hijacking your thread came from reading other posts where people get angry if a sidebar or related topic develops on the thread. I was afraid you'd be mad at me, and so chose a cautionary route.

If folks could all open up their paradigm, then this forum is people talking, except with their fingers. Real conversations with real people are like that, especially when they like each other and are passionate about something. The conversation just slides like butter from one fun tangent to the next. Just like sitting across from a friend with a coffee and you just talk about one thing and then another.

That doesn't hurt my feelings! Thank you for finding my writing and questions agreeable and topic worthy, but most of all, for being OK with me if they weren't.
