    Trailer wood stain treatment

    Moved my trailer into the basement garage so the wood stays dry a week or so before I give it a stain/sealing. Ive read about people using used motor oil. I have a 5 gallon pail of used diesel oil. Thoughts on using it versus buying some kind of stain/sealent? Brush it on? Or roll it?
    Thanks!

    My trailer sits out all year around. I tried stain but didn't seem to last. I painted it last summer with outdoor house paint. I picked a color that looks close to natural wood. I like it and it still looks good a year later.

    Just pour the motor oil on and wipe it around with a rag. It will take a while to soak in and dry.

    Works well.

    I've used engine oil many times. I mix a little diesel fuel with it, helps with the application.

    The big thing is have he wood be able to dry out when it gets wet. Help it last much much longer.

    I always use old motor oil, never new motor oil. For some reason, used oil seems to work better. Been about 2-3 years since I oiled my trailer. It will be done this year for sure. I was gathering oil today just for that purpose.
