I have done some checking locally and neither Home Depot nor Lowe's nor any other chain building supply stores carry 5/8" (19/32") plywood. However, one of the few remaining local building material stores, Star Lumber, carries nominal 5/8" exterior plywood in both AC (about $34/sheet) and AB (about $44/sheet) and both are decent looking. It's interesting about what you can and can't get and where.

Although my trailer has 5/8" OSB floors, I'm planning to use 3/4" plywood as it's a better thickness match to the adjacent OSB that is still in fairly "good" shape except for some swelling due to moisture and the fact that it's sitting on some fiberglass insulation. I plan to plane the perimeter that goes into the C channel.

Hate to sounds like a broken record but check with smaller advertising 'sign' workshops and see where they get their signboard plywood from. I went that way with true 3/4" 49x99" MDO (medium density overlay) and am very happy with it - for about the same money as the AB you mentioned.

Thank you, I did find a "REAL" lumber yard, had to buy a 4X8, hopefully I won't need it all. Will have it for other projects.

I hate buying 4 x 8 sheets when I only need a little, but eventually it all gets used.
