    the screws on the floor of my enclosed trailer are coming out right after eachother, screw them back in, and in one week they are back out.

    Is this a common problem? If you guys have a better permanent solution let me know because I am gutting the inside and replacing all the wood this weekend. Thanks

    I wonder if you couldnt use bolts. that what i used for my D-ring Tie downs to secure me equipment they were bolted to the frame. It a two person job. me and my dad did it.
    he was inside and i held the wrench under the trailer while he tightened the bolt.
    I would think you could do the same to secure the wood.

    If the original screw still holds tight, try using some thread locker on each.
