Now that I've discontinued my business (and have become a schoolteacher), I no longer need my Hauley to move product so I am thinking about building out the interior as a full time camper.
My first thought is that, um, "water happens"... eventually a window or a doorway or a water line leaks
, and the floor gets wet, and it might not be noticed right away. The Hauley is FG on the underside, like a tub, and any water that gets in will sit there until it evaporates.
The thought of building wood cabinets and having them someday get ruined by water soaked up from the bottom edges is unappealing. I am wondering if there is something practical I can put down on the FG surface that will totally withstand getting wet? And if so, I think I would have it on the entire floor area before building cabinets and stuff overtop of it. Does anyone know of such a material?
I suppose the alternative might be to somehow waterproof the lower parts of the cabinets with some sort of coating. Perhaps someone has a suggestion regarding a good waterproofing method for wood? As small as these cabinets will be, I'm sure I could afford some hardwood if that were part of the solution.
