I need some ideas for trailer floor coverings. I just ordered and put a
deposit down on a new 28 ft enclosed race car hauler for my rear engine
dragster. Should about 5 weeks until delivery.
I was a on a budget so I spent what little extra $$ I had on things I
needed. Full 12V and 110 lighting and electrical. Three 12V lights, Two
4ft 110V lights, Two 500W recessed quartz lights to light the pits. 3
wall outlets and a load center. All wiring and conduit is inside the
walls. All this was much cheaper than I could do it. White vinyl walls
and ceiling. Also an electric tongue jack and extended ramp door flap/door
bumpers to make loading the dragster easier.
After buying those items the budget was shot. My in-laws own a cabinet
shop, so I can get some nice oak cabinets for cost. I need some ideas for
the floor. As delivered it will be bare 3/4" plywood. 28' X 8' interior +
72"X92" ramp door.
Aluminum tread plate is out due to cost. I had considered having it done
with spray in truck bedliner. Linex, Speedliner, etc., but I got a couple
of estimates of $1600-1800 due to large square footage.
So that leaves:
paint, epoxy garage type
paint, enamel covered by a clear coat
polyurethane on bare wood
vinyl roll flooring
rubber roll flooring (any sources that sell direct to the public?)
Any other ideas and pros/cons?
