I really like the wood decking on my trailer. It is still the original wood that came on it. The leaking oil from my 3A ultimately dries into the wood. Usually before I get home.

The biggest bonus of the wood deck for me is when I haul other things besides the 3A. It is easy to just use a battery powered drill/driver to screw in brackets, stops, other tie downs, and such. My kids have used the trailer for three homecoming floats and the wood floor makes it super easy to build on.

I have been wondering what to reseal the deck with. I don't have used motor oil and may just end up getting some deck stain/sealer from the local lumber supplier.

Oops, I forgot about this thread. Thanks for all the input. Wood is starting to seem like a better choice. I will call those numbers and get quotes from them. I think that some heavy coats of deck sealer might work better, and be less messier. I'd give it another coat after a few months or so.

Anyone use deck, or other wood, sealer?

I had to put off working on the trailor. Did pick up some really heavy duty torsion axles for it though. They are brand new, 2" brakes, 12" drum, 8-lug. I think I looked them up and they are 8,000lb axles. Dexter is the brand. Got them dirt cheap.
