Interior Coating

spent this afternoon stripping out the interior of my trailer sailer. Previously the interior was lined with a foam backed vinyl, but it was pretty disgusting so it had to come out. now this may seem unorthodox , but i would like to spray the inside with white Polyurethane, I like the texture, its really hard wearing and its easy to apply. can anyone foresee any issues? someone told me that it may encourage osmosis due to the Polyurethane not being a breathable material, and any moisture would be stuck behind it.

its the 2 part Polyurethane Im considering, like the spray on bed liner stuff.

Psycho

I'm not familiar with what product you are talking about... But there are members here that have sprayed actual bedliner type material on decks with positive results...

Re: Interior Coating

haha, they advise a specific primer. lots of the jeep kits made of fibre glass use it with great results and positive feedback, but its the osmosis comment that is putting me on a knife edge.

Well if your boat were to sink, yes you might get osmosis on the inside but then who would care?

Re: Interior Coating

After more Reading up on this great forum, I have come to the conclusion that condensation would be a major pain in the ass if I go down the polyurethane route. So now it will be a headlining material or carpet to do the job.

Re: Interior Coating

Condensation!?

Better to have to mop/wipe it up than have it soaking into a material and supporting mold and stank.

You've gone to all the trouble of removing offensive covering and *now* you want to put it back ???? Better quick. swipe with a rag and a Clorox wipe than waiting days for damp carpet to dry or having a rain forest of mold between a headliner and the back of the coach roof.

Best,
Paul
