Trailer rubber coin floor

I talked about doing coin flooring the day I bought the trailer.
A year or so later, I got around to doing it a few weeks ago.
I still have a whole list of mods to do but...
I ordered G-Floor garage flooring ( http://www.bltllc.com/coin_pattern.htm) from NorthernTool.com - they had the best price.
I emptied everything out of the trailer. Unbolted the D-rings and wheel chocks. Rolled out the flooring and cut to size. Cut holes for the D-rings (and my thumb, but super glue fixed that). I still plan on glueing it down.
I'm so happy I finally did it. It seems so much cleaner while sleeping in it track side. We'll see how it holds up. I used the "commercial grade" thickness even though the blt site says to use their thicker "industrial grade" stuff.

1- Cleaner for camping/sleeping. I can easily sweep and wipe up the floor after unloading the bikes when I setup everything for sleeping. Then treat the trailer as a camper and take my shoes off at the door. Then at night when i crawl back into my double thick queen size air matteress, I dont have bits of sand and crap on the bottom of my feet. Or play the game of trying to tip toe around on flip flops getting dressed after a shower.

2 - I suppose it could get slippery with oil and water, but the plan it to keep a clean environment. I haven't done the ramp door yet. I might do that in rhino liner for more grip. But, this is the same flooring that comes in the $15K ATC trailer/toy haulers. Its just a vinyl flooring, so you can clean it the same as the vinyl in your house. And now when the oil drips from the generator, cuz I didn't carry it level, I just wipe it up. Just figure, anything that was soaking into the wood decking can now be wiped up. I just have to worry about tears and stretching and potentially hot tires sticking to it.
