darn.. that oil rack with the fold out table thing looks good... I have one without a fold out table.  :-/ should've ordered one like yours. How big is your trailer that you put a friggin cabinet mang? Looks pretty clean. Did you paint the inside? I'm thinking about laying some masonite and tiling the mofo or diamond plate the sumbiatch. Mine is a 6X12

It's a 7x16.  Just painted the floor and walls this weekend, added the cabinet and oil rack.  The floor will probably get the checkerboard treatment in the back half.  BTW, I highly recommend using Benjamin Moore paint.  I ran out of it and the other stuff I used wasn't nearly as thick and took a LOT longer to dry.  I thought about tiling but I think it would get torn up and paint is easy to fix.

    I have checkerboard linolium flooring in my trailer and am very disappointed in how poorly it has held up. While this is supposedly an appropriate floor for a car hauler, I think it sucks! I sure wish I hadn't been talked out of buying the more expensive flooring I was considering when I ordered the trailer. The problems I have encountered so far are; the oils in tires stain the floor, my roll-around toolbox's wheels leave grooves in the linolium (there hard rubber), and I have also accidentally cut the flooring. I think as far as a checkerboard flooring pattern goes, your on the right track with painting it on, probably alot more durable.

I painted the bottom of my trailer (and the rear entry door) checkerboard, then I coated with floor duty varnish that was mixed with this grit stuff I bought at Home Depot.

It REALLY helps driving the bike into the trailer as well as footing, especially when wet. In retrospect, however, I would just do the door because it makes the inside a b$t&h to clean.

I added sand (special paint sand  ::)) to the black for the ramp so it would have a rough texture.  It seems like it will work well.
