All About That Base - Trailer Decking Options

Let’s talk trailer decking. Depending on how you use your ALCOM aluminum trailer, your decking and floor needs will vary, and we have options to suit your hauling style. All decking options are designed to stand up to the elements and last for the long haul, so you can load up your ALCOM aluminum trailer with confidence.  

Why waste time worrying about the longevity of your trailer floor when you can choose from our water-resistant options, instead?


Let’s take a look at some of the trailer floor solutions ALCOM has to offer so you can choose the best decking for your needs and budget - then get ready to hit the road!  

Water Resistant Wood Decking 



In an enclosed ALCOM aluminum trailer, a popular decking option is our ⅝” or ¾” water resistant decking. The underside of this decking is water resistant, keeping the elements out for the long haul. Recessed D-rings can be built right into your trailer deck so that you don’t have to put holes in it to add tie-down points. 

You might also choose pressure-treated or heat-treated planking, available in many of our open aluminum trailers. Heat-treated wood delivers improved weather, pest, and damage resistance and is a long-lasting upgrade for your open ALCOM trailer. Pressure-treated wood is also designed to stand up to moisture and decay for years of adventure. Hauling whitewater rafts? A marine plywood trailer deck is a great choice that isn’t afraid to get splashed. 

Each of these wood decking options are durable and designed to resist expansion and deterioration. No matter which ALCOM aluminum trailer you choose, our wood decking options have got you covered! Learn more at our ALCOM brand websites or by contacting your local ALCOM dealer. 

Vinyl Decking  



For a stylish look and a dependable floor, check out the vinyl decking options in our ALCOM enclosed aluminum trailers. 

Get a grip with slip-resistant TP coin flooring in your enclosed trailer. The trailer deck, ramp, and even the starter flap can be decked out with durable, water-resistant TP coin flooring.  

Putting our quad-ply flooring in your car hauler is a gift that keeps giving back, mile after mile. It’s a long-lasting, super-durable option that looks new longer than other flooring types. Plus, it’s oil resistant and can be washed with soap and water. 

If you’re off to the races, our checkered flag vinyl decking is an upgrade that performs like a champion and looks great, too.  

Aluminum Decking  



Hitting the trails in your ATV or UTV? Hauling lawn equipment around to job sites? Or maybe you just want to be prepared for anything with your ALCOM aluminum trailer. 

Extruded aluminum decking is an easy choice so you never have to think twice. It’s the most water-resistant and long-lasting trailer decking available. 

With extruded aluminum decking on your aluminum frame trailer, your whole trailer is built to resist corrosion, reduce overall weight, and help you get more done. Extruded aluminum decking promises low-maintenance longevity, no matter how much mud or rain you put it through.
