Anyone have an opinion for the best, most durable spray-in bed-liner?

We have a truck camper, and a rubber bed pad that works well. We will install that over the bed-liner when we load the camper. But want a durable surface when camper is parked off truck, which is most of the time now.

Only 2 prominent choices and Line X if you want a hard very durable surface, but no slip resistance. Rhino for a more rubber like surface that stuff doesn't slide around on.
If you have a bed mat, I'd do line x and leave the mat in for normal day to day use. Easy to remove if you're hauling something more conducive to the hard surface.

2007 I took my brand spanking new 3500 longbed down to the shop that did Line-X spray in

It has held up VERY well.....no chipping/flaking and only light fading (AZ SUN)

Tough--durable


Course as with anything sprayed on...PREP is the key
Ask questions of vendor about their prep work


Is it time for your medication or mine?

Line-X is the best I have seen and used.

The difference between Line-X and Rhino-liner is the finish. Line-X is more evenly sprayed. Both have lifetime warranties. I used Line-X on my Dodge. 15 years of construction use.....no wear what-so-ever. Rhino-liner came on mt 2000 F350. No wear issues on this one either. Knowing how each looked, I went with Line-X on my wife's '54 Chevy.....show quality.

based on jobs I've seen, the biggest thing is how well the prep and spray is done. For good adhesion they really need to scuff the bed VERY WELL and clean it very well also and then the masking job and quality of the spray.

Had Line-X sprayed in about 12 years ago, and it still is in good shape. The truck is mostly a 5th wheel tow vehicle, but has hauled rock and other stuff. It basically looks like new. I would do it again in a heartbeat.

I thought that one of the big 2 required any repair work to be done by original installer even if you have moved 1000 miles away.

I had a Line-X in my Tundra and used it as a truck. I'd load it up with logs and firewood, mulch, gravel etc. I got a couple nice gouges in the Line-X from tossing big logs in the back. That's when I found out that the warranty is only good from the original installer. I never found time to take it back to him, so it was rather annoying.

I've had a few line-x liners.
As noted, if you load pallets, gravel dirt etc in a true construction worker manner, they do peel, break lose etc. Or drag gravel out of the bed with an 188" wide tooth bucket on a track hoe.....
Anyway......ice known folks in landscape biz that say both have same issues if you abuse things per day in a daily basis. Find out which franchise locally if you can has the best rep, go to that place.
