    We are forever banging up the walls on the enclosed trlr so I get out the wood putty and the paint a few times a year and I'm tired of doing it.

    I want to put some kind of material about 3 ft high up from the floor and the length of the 16 ft enclosed. Diamond plate might work and I can get it on ebay for about $200 but I never worked with this stuff and was wondering if its a bear to drill screw holes into?

    Any other metal or other material you could recommend?? thanks much

    When I was working as a Truck mechanic we had a scuff plate that was a hard plastic or fiberglass that was 2-3 feet tall and it held up very well against forklift traffic. I dont know the name of it but if you have a truck/trailer repair close by you might can find it there

    thanks much GCF...your suggestion might be a better option than diamond plate. I'll look into it
