    Just picked up a new 8x16' enclosed, wondering what would be best to put down on the wood floor to make it last longer. Got a LineX estimate for over a grand, looking to spent a little less than that.

    I thinking something smoother than LineX or rhino lining to make cleanup / sweeping easier without giving up all traction.

    You may try a big rubber mat. A lot of guys use linex. I would prolly go that route. I would also do the tongue.

    we painted the floor when we first got it with sand in the paint for traction and wear resistance , but this year had it linexed. best thing ever man, if you can afford it , do it

    Iam in the same boat. I am picking up my new 8x16 enclosed and we got a bid from linex for over a grand too. The trailer dealer has someone who rolls on this polly stuff and it has speckals in to for traction? Anyone have this stuff or know of a better way to keep crap off the floor.
