    Was wondering if anyone has ever sprayed down the walls of an older reefer trailer with some rhino line or anything like that. Is it plausible?

    Why?

    the walls are not important, the insulation is and they degrade enough the reefer needs to be scrapped.

    Do not spend money trying to beautify an old reefer trailer. It's money down a hole.

    That being said, almost nothing sticks to Kemlite, it would probably peel back off in huge sheets, then you'd have one hell of a mess.

    The blue and red paint from painted pallets sticks great. You can't get that crap off.

    I would not waste money on the inside of an older trailer. If you have holes or tears where the insulation is exposed, use outdoor window sealer. Before you decide on which one to purchase, read the label for the temperature ranges.

    That stuff even stains the walls of my new trailer that has some magic non-stick stuff that is super slippery. I've tried every pressure sensitive adhesive vinyl known to mankind, trying to put the unit number inside... no deal, they fall off after a day or so. But Chep paint, yep, doesn't come off even with Purple Power and a pressure washer.

    Nothing gets it clean and everything stains it. Phosphoric acid does take a lot of the stains off.
