I dont think ive ever seen it untreated or not fully used up, oil soaked etc.. and am not the right guy to name joints.  I dont know joinery.  The trailers were always hammered, boards splintered, busted, rounded off.  There was a few oem new trailer planks in the shop that were said to be apitong.  thats the standard for aluminum flats to stay light. We just filled in holes good enough to not break a leg.  It was probably only 4/4.

 Im not saying it isnt good wood.  But it was known for being expensive and hard to find when 2x4s were 3 bucks.  The value just might not be there right now.  Especially for anyone who has acess to the resources of this forum.

I've seen mixed results with treated. Some has been great, other stuff has curled and twisted,lifting 4" off the deck.
