Painting the floor in my trailer

Hello fellow rodders, it has been awhile.

Just purchased an 8.5 X 20 enclosed trailer to haul my car to the track.

I am going to paint the floor with some non-slip paint to preserve it from grease, oil, gas and such. I am having problem finding appropriate paint for the application. I have looked at garage floor paint that is hard, non-slip and resisted the elements of a garage floor, problems is they are designed for a stable concrete floor, the plywood floor has flex and the hard paint will crack, flake and will expose the plywood.

I don't want the car slipping around on a nice smooth painted surface but I want to protect the plywood floor.

Has anyone had success with painting the floor in their car carrier with non-slip protective paint???

No, but I have mixed sand in the paint for non skid boat trailer surfaces or scattered sand on wet paint. Both methods worked, but were not a thing of beauty.

I think all of my friends have just used high quality exterior paint
with some very fine sand sprinkled on, in between the coats of paint

Maybe you could use the roll-on truck bed liner. Most of those work on wood also. Just a thought.
