AFM Safecoat makes a good sealer from what I hear, I've never used it hosever so I can't know with certainty. Also, check this out:

I have it starting right at the part where he talks about the coating they are using on the lumber. I'm assuming it's to prevent terpenes from off-gassing? I haven't looked into it but found it interesting.



I've used Bioshield paint, smelled like dirt, no odor when dried but wasn't resistant to water. There is also a brand KEIM which I've heard has lasted on building more than 100 years and is from what I understand natural but it was super costly last I looked into it about 5 years ago.

FG trailers are so small, they don't need much paint. So an "expensive" paint might not cost too much after all.

I wanted to paint the lower half outside with a rubberized paint (not black)--but it was only sold in gallons at $60 per--which might've been okay, but the shipping was close to $60 a gallon also. Today, it might seem worth it, but in 2015 we had so much to do on Peanut we didn't rubberize it against rock chips. So far, no major issues with chips yet.

Depends on how the paint is sold. Some paints can be had in very small containers indeed. The rubber paint I was looking at back then only came in gallons. AND it wouldn't keep once opened. If you had some left, in a month it would've hardened and been useless for touching up.
