What wood for trailer floor?

Postby stretch on Mon Aug 29, 2016 3:03 pm

Need some advice on what type of wood to use on a trailer floor that will be exposed to the elements. Was thinking marine ply but will be too slippery. Any ideas?

I'm with robbie, used phenolic ply on my trailer floor and sides. Nine years and still looking good.

There is also omniboard which is synthetic, it's construction is a square section honeycomb sandwiched between 2 sheets. Tough as old bots and light weight and welded if needs be.
Remember, keep the greasy side down!
