Okay, give you that. Guess I'm too lazy! I did the roll on liner on a trailer I bought. Never thought I was going to be done....

I was able to mitigate the effects though by removing the liner periodically and cleaning it out. It did trap a considerable amount of dust and crap in there, and did not often dry out from either the car wash or rains.

That being said If I were to continue to be haulling lots of concrete and rocks, I'd go with a rigid liner again in a heartbeat. My last one took some incredible impacts with little to no damage to the bed walls
Not having to haul rock, bricks it did not occur to me, but you make a good point.

You make a good suggestion to protect the truck bed.
