Thumbs up Enclosed Trailer Flooring Question

I've had a couple enclosed trailers, one with LineX and the other is the new Mirage plastic coated floor. Both worked well, each has differences IMO.

I am looking at a gooseneck race trailer I can use for other hobbies and I notice several have the "black coin rubber flooring". I've seen flooring before in Featherlite Race Car Haulers, etc.and they appeared to hold up well to race fuel, degreasers, brake cleaner, water, dirt, etc..

They say it's layed on the plywood floor in one piece, no seams. I guess a guy could just use SLP skins or ski boots, knowing a carbide would probably cut into the hard rubber. Since it's a gooseneck, I'd have to drag them out the back or use the dolly. Do you think you could hose it out still, broom out the snow and ice, mop it on a warm day etc? It looks really nice and appears to be very durable. I know it's a pricey option, that's for sure.

Anyone seen this used in the snowmobile world? Any thoughts or comments?
I figured somebody on here would surely have an opinion! LMAO

Thanks.

Hey Tim,

If it's rubber/plastic, I'd be concerned that spilling the typical oil/grease etc would create a bananna peel effect.

I've been looking at a marine-grade adhesive gel coat that is used to texture fiberglass boat decks - since it would have some grip, and be easily hosed down. It would definitely require ski boots though.

I think I'm going to end up doing diamond-plate with mats and place some of the clear marine gel-texture in the traction areas.

Best of luck!

MD.

The blackdot flooring is very nice and the chemicals arn't the issue the skegs are though and will cut it.

I know this has been asked 7 billion times before...

but why will Rhino Liner sprayed on thick NOT work?

I mean yeah your carbides will eventually cut it, but is that really a bad thing? I mean even with that mirage flooring eventually my carbides are gonna wear that out ...

I've been towing my parents Charmac the last couple days, and it has the plain wood flooring, and after slipping sliding, having to get running starts just to load the damn sleds, etc, it's making my Mirage look more appealing all the time...

The Rino coating is expensive. The best and most durable deal is a marine-grade fiberglass and add sand for traction. Very durable.

You can buy a truck bed liner for $20 at the junk yard and make tracks or cut out a section the size of a ski and strap it to the ski and slide it around without hurting the carbides or trailer floor.

Dogmeat - lots of way to do this of course.

I got a quote for $2K to put in Rino lining - and to know that that floor was going to get trashed - forget it. Ski boots do the trick, but get old - especially when it's cold. I don't mind investing in good flooring material, but I'd be more apt to invest if I know it's not going to get trashed.

DM, I've got a Charmac and was tired of the exact same things. This summer I spent 50 bucks for a two part epoxy garage floor paint kit. It's light grey.
A couple of buddies donated old truck bed liners they had laying around, and I cut runners out of it.

I've already spilled oil and gas on the floor , no problems, and the sleds load so much easier with the bed liner it just about makes me laugh everytime I load them!

Total was about three afternoon of work. Sure was worth it! Bagger

Thanks for the input. I ended up buying a trailer that has the front/cabinet area in the grey dot floor. I'm going to just put rubber backed mats here, as this is the area we're in/out of the most. The remainder of the trailer was done in diamond plate flooring. I'm going with marine grade gray carpet for this year. I'm thinking of having it LineX'd over the summer. I think it will bond with the aluminum and should wear just fine. Agree?

I got too good of a deal on this brand new gooseneck, only thing wrong is the floor for sledding.
