Floor Timber Preservation

Recommended Posts

We were considering buying a new 2015 Bailey Unicorn but since they are not doing a Pampalona layout we have decided to stick with our Barcelona for now.

 

When I was installing the mover and underneath it for the first time I was quite shocked to see it was what I assume to be marine ply on the bottom. I don't know what I expected but I certainly did not expect it to be wooden.

 

My question is with regard to up-keep and maintenance of the wood and do you have to treat it periodically or is there a coating of some description to ensure it does not rot away?

 

I Waxoyled the chassis A frame and the mover metal bits before we put it in storage for the winter last year but did not think about wood preservation at the time

They don't normally recommend treating underfloors these days.

It is marine ply, and is waterproof. No maintenance necessary.

As gravon say's, it's marine ply and has already been treated. You don't need to Waxoyl the chassis either as it's already galvanised

 

We had marine ply on our boat for twenty years and the only stuff that deteriorated was that which had varnish on it where water got in behind it and then couldn't evaporate away.
