    Is there any recommendations to protecting the PT wood floorboards on an open trailer?
    UV, anti skid, water sealer?

    Lots of folks (most) don't do anything and just run it as is. I rolled CWF (clear wood finish) on mine as soon as I got it and do it once a year or so.

    I agree with ROCK, put a clear coat on the wood and it should last you longer then not coating it at all

    I put some sort of Armor All wood protectant on mine. Seems to be holding up realitivly well thus far.

    I used this for my enclosed, but it might work for an open also.

    I used Behr porch and floor paint in gray. I added a 1 pound of sand per gallon and painted the floor. Came out ok, but the sand would settle fast, even stirring every couple of minutes.

    Wouldn't treating the flooring make it slippery when it's wet?

    Thats what I thought originally, but mine seems to get tacky when wet. Actually makes traction better..

    A polyurathane would make it slippery. I use like a deck sealer, with cedar color which looks awsome, and it does a great job. No Slippyness at all.
