    I have read where some of you guys have used the diamondplate on the trailer floors. I would really appreciate any pictures. I am revamping my trailer and adding diamondplate on the front and got to thinking what it would be like on the floor. Do you guys leave the origional wood and put the diamondplate on top? Thanks for the Help! Blair

    I don't have any pics, but the entire floor is diamond tread on our 18' trailer. It's painted steel. I think the trailer is ~3-4 years old, and it's built like a tank. I don't think I've ever seen another trailer that has as much steel underneath as that one does.

    Here's the company that built it: http://www.liberty-industries.com/ They are about 1/2 mile from the DC headquarters.:) This is about what the underside of our trailer looks like, only on our trailer the crossmembers go almost all the way to the front of the bed: http://www.liberty-industries.com/images/structural.jpg
