    What does everybody do to the floor for there enclosed trailers ? I just baught an 18 x 7 and was wondering if you just leave it, paint it, or maybe use an epoxy paint to protect it ?

    My 7x14 I just left them wood but I'm thinking of doing something. Its 3yrs old and its starting to look shaby. The only thing I would worry about is get to the screws to replace the boards.

    Go to Lowes or Home Cheapo and in the "safety" paint and concrete paint section they have Non-Skid Paint. It has a sand like substance in it and in makes the floor look very nice and has a great grip to it. Its $21 a gallon and comes in grey, dark grey and brown.

    Get some aluminum diamond tread plate. It will be expensive but worth it and it is tough.
