Enclosed Trailer Flooring

I have an 8'x20' Enclosed trailer. The previous owner didn't cover the floor when he used it, and leaked some gas which has soaked into the wood. Since I'm planning on using it to sleep in occasionally, I thought I might cover the floor with either tile flooring, rubber flooring, or something else to seal out the gas fumes, make it easier to clean, etc... My budget is $200-300. Can anyone make any suggestions in that price range? Pictures would be helpful if you have them.

Re: Enclosed Trailer Flooring

Peel & stick tiles seem to be popular but you might have problems with them not sticking good to a dirty floor. Toy haulers come with roll vinyl--don't know why theat would be a better choice. Seems like it would be easy to install in a trailer. Might be slick when wet, though.

How about astro turf?
All weather carpet (polypropylene)?

Re: Enclosed Trailer Flooring

I don't think carpet, or astro turf is what I'm looking for. I want something I can spray out to clean. I like the Epoxy idea, but my floor flexes a little, and has seams in the wood, that I'd be nervous about cracking/peeling. Plus, I'd have to sand and prime the floor first.

Thanks for the ideas so far.
Any other thoughts?

Re: Enclosed Trailer Flooring

go to lowes or home depot and buy a gallon of grey floor paint and paint the floor. once you do it, the next time will be really quick. $20/gallon and once it's done, it will do the floor 3-4 times. make sure you de-grease the area with the stain, and clean the floor good.

Re: Enclosed Trailer Flooring

i use a blower to clean the trailer. i also re-paint the floor every other time i use it (i know i'm crazy) but it takes me 20 minutes if i keep up on it. good excuse to have a cold one!

Re: Enclosed Trailer Flooring

You could spray with Rhino Liner or something similar....
or a cheap cushion floor, or wall to wall carpet maybe, in an Orange Shag!! With the white balls on string to decorate the top of the walls where it meets the ceiling....and a drop down disco ball..

Re: Enclosed Trailer Flooring

I haven't even bought a trailer yet, and I have already been lookinng at flooring...lol.

I was thinking of going with the 12"x12" rubber/plastic tiles that they sell at Sears for garage flooring. They basically snap together, and can be removed if you need to.

Re: Enclosed Trailer Flooring

I put a sprayed in bed liner in my enclosed trailer and went up the walls about 2'.it looks great and is skid resistant.just make sure you used a rubber type bedliner .the linex liner is actually a hard plastic and offers very little if any skid resistance.I'm a reflex dealer so I like it the best. but rhino is almost as good.we can do most colors with reflex also.don't even waste your money on the roll on or walmart liners in a can they are total junk.you can go on the reflex website and find a dealer near you.Reflex Truck Liner - Home .my 6x12 trailer used less material than a truck bed so you might get it done close to your price range since theres no sanding or prep work other than masking it up. hope this helps ,if you have any questions feel free to ask.kybodyguy

Re: Enclosed Trailer Flooring

Langford, how much are the 12" tiles at Sears? (Edit: I found it. $119 a box, and I would need 4 boxes... YIKES!)

I would love the Rhino line option, but it's too expensive ($1000+ for my trailer.)

Thats exactly what I was thinking, paint should do the trick

Yeah, they aren't cheap...but I like the idea that they aren't permanent. You can probably get them cheaper online though.

Re: Enclosed Trailer Flooring

I painted my floor and it works well for me. I like the lino idea but I would steer away from any thing that would trap dirt/mud/sand and not be easy to clean.
