Thanks for the link. I think the epoxy garage floor coating looks like the way to go.

I use whatever paint I have left over from various jobs........... does the same thing- seals the floor.

I had linoleum floors put in my trailer when I ordered it in 2008 - Interstate 1 - 20' V-Nose trailer, 9,900 rating. 8.5 ft wide

No issues with the floor. I only have about 6-7 minor marks in the linoleum, the marks have been from only stuff I haul in the trailer not the Model A. The ramp door is also covered in linoleum, The trailer had been used for 45,000-50,000 kilometres or 28,000-31,000 miles.

Great Trailer

Another option would be RaceDeck flooring. Made for garage floors, it is highly resistant to oil & chemicals. I also use the poly sheeting that is on my walls to cover the drive in rear door. (from Mennards) that way they can be easily replaced.

How about that spray plastic material that is used to spray pick-up truck boxes? It would certainly be durable and available in various colours to match

also dont forget about how much weight different types of coverings will add.

For those of you with linoleum, isnt it slippery when tires/your shoes are wet?

Lightbulb Re: Paint for a new enclosed trailer floor

Cars leak ...

Oil - gas - coolant.

Drip pans can't catch everything.

Unless you plan to add a disco ball - theatrical lighting to your enclosed trailer ...

I got a great tip earlier this year from a high end customizer of enclosed car hauler trailers - horse mats - so I put them in my enclosed car hauler trailer.

I purchased mine from them - but you can get them at YT Tractor Supply
or other farm supply locations:

@ http://www.tractorsupply.com/tsc/pro...ck-4-ft-x-6-ft

They paid off recently when a Model T had a leaky tank - the mat absorbed it - I just tossed the mat and got a new one.

Yes the linoleum is slippery if there is a light rain and you have to be aware of that. I have slipped a couple of time on my ramp, that is covered in linoleum, in the rain.
