Enclosed trailer flooring
 
What is the best flooring to install in an enclosed trailer?

RTBS 09-09-2018 05:03 PM

I'm guessing this is for an existing trailer? I have one that is just painted plywood and is getting damaged by the carbides. I'm in need to cover mine also. I've looked into some of the plastic tiles and heard they don't hold up so well so I'm looking for other options. I've been considering just using ski glides on the plywood and not cover the rest and repaint the plywood.

I ordered my new trailer with Nudo flooring. Don't know yet if I'll put glides down

I like drymax flooring. I have pulled it 3 seasons so far. Very durable.

Check in to SwissTrax Ribtrax...think I'm going this route in a trailer I just picked up.

I am picky/anal guy and after owning my first enclosed trailer for a couple years, I really don't get why all the fuss for a trailer floor. My new trailer came from the dealer with 3/4" drymax OSB for the floor and it has very few, if any blemishes after 2 seasons. I am really happy that I did not spend big bucks to cover with anything. Moving sleds by hand is a breeze and the water just beads/pools on the floor. I did install traction mats and ski guides on the doors which I would recommend.

Had Nudo flooring in a Wells Cargo trailer for 2 years. Loved it!

I didnít put any glides down. My skis did scuff it up a bit but it was just cosmetic.

My trailer is a 40' gooseneck with 32' of floor space. I think the cost was around $1200 or so. It was very easy to install and took about a day (mostly getting all the cuts as good as possible)

how is that to clean/sweep out? Is dirt a problem? can it be pressure washed?

I just use an electric pressure washer, but i must add I have in floor heat system that doubles as a drain system it drains like a champ so I have no ice build up

I have SwissTrax in my garage in CO and pressure wash it all the time using a floor washing tool on the end of a pressure washer (amazon has them cheap). Cleans up like new each time.

As for cost, I just ordered SwissTrax for my new trailer and it costs about $4/square foot if you want new material. I've found that the company often times has "used" flooring which they have snapped together once/twice at a car show (i.e. Barrett Jackson) that they are willing to sell for cheaper. You are limited on colors as they usually use black, grey, red, white at these shows, but those colors are perfect for most trailers. With that said, I paid $2.98/square foot for my used material (black/grey) and it will be here this week.

I'll shoot some pictures after I install it.
