MY one trailer has a Rumber floor and it is still slippery when wet so I usually leave some bedding in it.
My new Duralite has checker plate aluminum so doesn't take much bedding.
Used to have rubber mats made from crumb rubber that weren't to bad but they stretched a bit.
My first trailer had mats made from strips of car tire. worked OK until the wires broke and they came apart.

Don't think I was much help.lol

We put a polylast floor in a stock trailer. It is a rubber cushion floor. It works great. Easy to clean, no bedding needed, no more rolled up mats.
