Photo'd the wood in my van, had a proper look for the first time and it just appears to be 5/6mm MDF, who would even think of putting MDF down for a van floor You can see what the outcome is anyway.

Did you get your trailer off that crowd? I'll give them a ring once they open and see if it's the same stuff they supply and if they do a fitting service at all or sell it separate by the sheet, thanks.

Yep, I got the trailer from them. They're not cheap, and I doubt that they are the importers, so they surely have a mark up on the sheeting.
I couldn't find any other supplier.

Rang them up and they were pricey enough on it alright!

Just got a quote of 280+vat off NVD to fit 12mm wisadeck so I might go with that. Have been onto a few others but haven't heard back.

Please don't use Chinese ply. Try Waller and Wickham in Dublin. Robbins is reputed to be well worth it. Enjoy the building, I hope to start soon, PM me if you wish.

Yeah got the quote of and it's quite expensive, maybe too good for what I need it for (just a floor in a van). What's the "robbins" you're referring to?

Quote of 295+vat for 10mm birch wisadeck ply with phenolic resin (from Finland, probably good stuff!) from Cafco.

Just got a call back from NVD who confirmed it's 9mm hardwood ply made in the UK with a penolic anti-slip on it and will be 280+VAT fitted. They'd only have it next Thursday though and I was hoping to get it done sooner so will see if Cafco get back to me and what they say.

Robbins is a company in England that specialise in marine plywood etc. Expensive, but perfect for marine use.

Ah yeah, think I saw them mentioned on the transit forum I posted on re a new floor. Checked their site and no sign of wisa deck.

Waller and Wickham in Dublin are buying their marine-ply in Robbins- UK, who buy their marine-ply at Burguet in France .
So, try to buy from France straight away !!!
