    Default 4 Star owners-WERM flooring

    Any feedback on WERM flooring vs rubber mats? Is the WERM flooring slippery? Can you haul without shavings with WERM flooring? Is it a lot easier to clean?

    Will cost around $1,500 to get it installed in my trailer.

    The WERM flooring in my 4Star is hands down it's best feature--worth every penny. I don't ship without shavings because I find that while the floor itself is not slippery the manure and urine deposited on it is. You will not have to worry about corrosion they way you would with conventional mats because nothing can leak under it. It's like Line-X for your trailer--far superior to a plastic bed liner. You will not regret having it done!

    How often do you sweep out all the shavings and hose out your trailer?

    I don't usually use shavings because it makes it so hard to get the trailer really clean. Might not be a problem with the WERM flooring since there aren't cracks that collect manure and nothing gets under it.

    My trailer is a 2001 but still in excellent condition. Service manager suggested adding the WERM flooring.

    Werm is worth every penny! I clean it out every time it's used, it sweeps up nicely and also use shavings as well.

    I muck the wet shavings and manure out after every use but I only strip it about once a year when we pressure wash it. It looks brand new afterwards.
