reviews on wickes site, used for painting and waterproofing, oderlous when dried, ok as long as you dont use to walk on, just put ply wood back on. a lot cheaper than protecta kote

That's seems a bit pointless if you need to have heavy kit in the van then like a water tank and other kit to load in/out like a pressure washer etc :rolleyes:

its not recomended to paint on areas used to walk on all the time, like paths etc. its main use is to cover the van floor to stop any rust forming in areas where water may stay. the water you cant see. ill just coat the plylined floor sheet with waterproof paint or varnish. easier to put gear on a wooden base, easier to move around.

My Van is fully ply lined and in good condition so I just painted the ply with two coats of blue protektacote . I barely get any leaks but if so i mop them up quickly. I like the ply to screw bits into.
