1) LineX, DO NOT waste time or money on Rhino, it peels, scratches, chips out and stains. I let the dealer talk me into it instead of LineX like on my past 3 trucks, I regretted it less than 30 days after I had it done on my new '17 F 350. Rhino had 19 reasons why I was at fault: "It's rust stains and not covered under warranty": REALLY, you realize the '17 F series is ALL Aluminum! "Well then its leaves you have let set in to long and they stained it, not under warranty": The truck is less than 30 days old and its garaged day and night! "Ehhh Rhino won't stick to Alum and that is why it's peeling and chipping" Duh it's not raw Alum, it's painted like the rest of the truck and YOUR GUYS are the one that installed it!!!!!!!
ETC ETC ETC till I left, other Rhino shops just said your shop did not install it properly and we cannot warranty that for them, you need to see them..
I ordered my '19 F 350 with the Ford Spray in and so far it looks good after almost 2 months.
2) Now that you have got it LineX'd it's time to cushion the floor of the bed for that Camper. Tractor Supply Co Horse Stall Matting and no it won't cost you several $$$ bucks for a thin piece of rubber that does nothing for you, the camper or the truck. https://www.tractorsupply.com/tsc/pr...BoC8t4QAvD_BwE
If you go to one of the TSC's that is in a rural area or in a horse friendly town they will have it on a roll: It come 4 ft wide and as long or short as you want it.
4 ft. x 6 ft. x 3/4 in. Thick Rubber Stall Mat
SKU # 221900399
My TSC carried it a roll as out here in ranch country most have long bed truck, figure less than $60 bucks incl tax give you a 4x8x3/4 piece. How long will it last? I had it in the bed of my truck for 7 years and the guy that bought my camper bought it from me for $50 bucks, it was like new in-spite of having an Arctic Fox 1150 4,200 lb camper riding on it for those 7 years. In addition when the camper was not in the bed of my truck it was my ranch truck, hauled rocks, pipe, brick you name it, never a dent, never a tear or any damage. You will get your money back at trade in time.
As it's made for recycle rubber it will cushion anything in the bed of the truck and keep stuff from sliding around.
