    Hey guys, I just bought a trailer that has the expanded metal on in the wrong direction. One direction catches traction better that the other. It has great traction sliding your foot up it but down is like ice. I have had many trailers and never seen a rookie mistake like this. The company is very large, and the rest of the trailer is built excellent. Do you think they should be responsible and fix it?

    Both of my trailers are like that too. When I got the first one I thought it was a mistake. But when I got the second one it was like that also. It's really bad when it's wet.
    Since alot of the spot welds are starting to pop I might just grind the rest of them off and weld it back on the other way.

    Ifyou cant get anywhere with the company go to Walmart or local speed shop and get the roll on liner (like Rhino bed liners ) get a paint roller and apply (works good for traction aid) Oh thanks for your pics on the leaf box!
