Make Subfloor Flat and Smooth

Check the subfloor to make sure it is in good condition. It needs to be flat and completely smooth. If the subfloor is wooden, any seams should be sanded smooth and should be level with one another. This will prevent the seam from being visible when the floor is in place. Once the floor is smooth and level, it should be cleaned thoroughly of all debris and allowed to dry completely. Meanwhile, the flooring should be acclimated to room temperature at least 24 hours before cutting.

Cut G-Floor® Trailer Flooring

Unroll the flooring into the trailer, making sure it is straight with the trailer walls. Mark the area where the excess will be cut out. Cut with a utility knife or heavy-duty shears. Carefully remove any excess material to fit all the angles of the trailer, so that it lays flat on the floor.

Apply Adhesive and Install the Flooring

Your new trailer flooring will require a full glue down application. Make sure to use an adhesive suitable for securing a scrim backed vinyl to your specific subfloor.

Step 1: Put the Floor in Position

Lay the floor in position. Then fold back half of the floor. Lengthwise is recommended.

Step 2: Apply the Adhesive

Using a notched trowel, apply recommended adhesive to the subfloor. Always follow the manufacturer’s instructions when applying adhesive.

Step 3: Cure the Adhesive

Let the adhesive sit according to instructions. The open time will allow the adhesive to achieve its best hold.

Step 4: Lay the Floor in Place

Carefully roll the flooring back into place (do not “flop” the flooring back over). Using a hundred-pound roller, roll the entire floor to work out air pockets and ensure the adhesive is evenly distributed.

Step 5: Affix the Remaining Floor

Repeat steps 1 through 4 for the other half of the floor. Clean any adhesive residue left on the floor.

Step 6: Finish the Bonding

Using the floor roller, roll from the middle to the edges to fully secure the flooring to the trailer subfloor. Roll firmly over the entire floor.

Step 7: Allow the Adhesive to Dry

Keep foot traffic to a minimum for 24 hours after installation to ensure the best bond.

Cleaning Your New G-Floor® Trailer Flooring

Cleaning and maintaining is simple: Keep it swept and use a damp mop with mild detergent and water.
