I need to replace the trailer bed: originally was that expanded steel mesh stuff, I covered it over with concrete shuttering ply wood, which is now not very good. Any suggestions please?

Hi Richard

Try Suredeck.

http://www.nonslipshop.co.uk/page.asp?id=suredeck

It is a non slip, resin impregnated plywood. Available in different thickness'. I used 9mm for the new floorboards in Millie. I liked the non slip aspect and it looks like carbon fibre if you paint it black :wink:

Cheers

Hmmm, having just loaded the Mog onto the trailer for tomorrow's Debden sprint, maybe re-bedding is a bit more urgent! Good job I left the expanded steel stuff in place!

Hi Richard,
I used an 8' by 4' sheet of aluminium 5-bar tread plate that when cut fitted mine perfectly.
Just over £100 if recall.
