Check this out. Based on some of your ideas, I think what I am going to do is put down some 1/4" thin Hardi-backer board over the plywood, screw it down, and then maybe have the backer board floor surface spray-coated with Line-X.

What do you all think about this option?
This is basically what I did since my floor was nasty as i bought it used. Put down the hardi board then used the Herculiner "do it yourself" roll on bedliner. Worked really good. If i bought a new trailer i would just put the liner right on the floor.

go to home depot and buy yourself a linoleum Rembrandt floor. Costs about $80 for a 6x12. Cut it to fit perfectly, and staple it along the edge. then cut 6" high pieces of plywood and put them against the wall to hold down the floor and protect the mowers from messing up the walls. look at these pictures of my old trailer:

I've been planning on painting mine this spring, but I also emailed the BLT LLC people about pricing on their floor coverings. Does anyone have any good or bad reviews of it?

The spray on is nice, but pricey. I'm doing the white and black checkers in the spring. Just peel and stick. Keeps water off and wears well.

i dont spill much, so i'm fine...

These floors do take a beating. Last month I bought 1/2" plywood and overlapped the existing floor seams. Also put very hard quarter round at both ends. Will prime it and paint it this spring. This was last done 4 years ago. Easy to do and inexpensive and does not add much weight. We also have diamond plate running length of trlr on both sides and up 18" from the floor.
I would stay away from anything that might break down or move around with machines in and out all the time.

The roll on bedliner is so easy and durable! 2 coats of that on the floor and 18 or so inches up the wall and you are good to go if you dont wanna spend the money for line x. The roll on liner has grit mixed in and you can put it on as thick as you want. Do that, paint the walls a nice color and be done with it.

Has anyone ever used Plasti-kote roll on bed liner? I'm thinking about doing this to the floor of mine and up 2 foot on the walls. Heres the link
