Default Pit Trailer Flooring

Hey all. I am upgrading the inside of my pit table. I have pulled the bench and cabinets out and am going to insulate the walls, paint, and then cover the wooden floor with ??? I am thinking vinyl would probably be fine for the interior floor. Thoughts? However, vinyl is probably too slippery when wet to use on the rear door. All good suggestions are welcome.

Lowe's has some nice stick on vinyl planks and also some interlocking waterproof planks that you wouldn't have to stick on..

I have hard wood in mine which works well but I think I would use this stuff it's called G Flooring.

The vinyl and fake wood I've seen in trailers has been super slick ever time it rains or is humid. Even the Rino liner and sand mix gets slick.

If I had a trailer, I'd put that really cheap industrial hallway carpet in it. Tear it out and replace it every winter as needed. Nothing slides around on that stuff.

I personally would go with a 1/2 to 3/4" rubber floor. Easy on the back when standing, good traction and no scratches and easy cleaning by taking a hose to it after a race weekend. You can buy it in 2'x2' sheets. Very long lasting as weLL.
