Default What's a good product to protect plywood

I want to paint or spray somthing heavy duty on the exposed plywood on the underside of my new off-road pop-up trailer. It's going to get muddy and wet etc. and I want to protect it.

What's a good product for this.

Any of the 1 part uratane products such as Duraback, Line-X, Rhinoliner, etc..... That stuff really sticks to wood!

That's a good idea, Scott, I can't believe they leave that usb exposed like that. Dang another thing I need to do this year... (thanks a lot, buddy!) I would think just paint or primer would work too, in the interim until you can do something more substantial.

Though given some recent off-road history, maybe sheet metal is more appropriate?

LOL I was thinking the same but I think 3/16" would be minimum Yoder plating!

I'm thinking Scott would need quarter-inch steel. I don't think he's ever heard the word "finesse".

In my head is a picture of an old rowboat, bolted up to the bottom of the camper. Protection to go through anything, provides great aerodynamics, plus internal storage!

Scott, the toughest coating for wood that I know of is marine spar varnish. It's made for decks and masts on boats, so you know it will handle the worst environments. I use it on all outdoor wood, and is vastly superior to any polyurethane product I have tried. I am currently using it on my redecking project.
