Slowcowboy I used the mix . 3 coats of it and at increasing strength. Then I applied 2 coats of the same rubber roofing
that the Woodbutcher used from Menards. I rolled it on. The only concern I have is the drop floor and I'm thinking of adding
a deflector shield to it . In the photo the floor is inverted for applying the sealer and rubber coating. The product is(Duck Coat) It's white . It's a thermoplastic coating . It can be applied in temps as low as 35 ( not the temp i would do it in) and it covers 70 square feet per gallon.

I used 2 coats each, exterior latex primer, then exterior latex paint. Been 5 years. Pulled through flooding rains, dirt roads, and so on. Still looks perfect! My opinion, don't seal the moisture in. Let it breathe. Look at the bottom of any factory produced camper out there. Any rot I've seen, and experienced through owning a pop up, came from a top side leak of some sort, not off the road. Good luck!

Slow:

I wouldn't want to add a layer that may trap moisture.

If it were me, I'd slather thinned oil-based polyurethane on that stuff and be done with it. But take a look underneath your teardrop and see if it's getting beat up at all. I think you'll find it's nice and tidy after all these years.

Driveway crack filler. Rolls on and fills all the little voids and is flexible and cheap. A quart is about 7 bucks and does a 4 x 8 easily

Slow I thought of tin ( or sheet stock) on the bottom side at one point but also afraid of trapping moisture in between. If there were a sealer and finish I'd be more apt to try something like that . Even my worry about a rock shield on the drop box on my build. I still wouldn't just screw it flat against the ply and mine is all finished with the mix and the rolled rubber roofing. Your area of the country is surly tougher on the bottom side of the trailer and probably would benefit from a tougher bottom like that. I think of a boat that is made of wood and fiberglass . The wood is it's form and structure and the fiberglass it's strength but the number one failure is the rot within the fiber glass. It does't allow the moisture to escape.
