I have a 2 x 6 wood floor utility trailer and after 3 years needed to replace the wood. I was taking my garden tractor in for service and the one front tire fell through the floor.

After inspecting the rest of the boards I ended up replacing the entire floor.

If I had to do it over again I would purchase an enclosed trailer. I know there is added cost but they can be used to haul equipment and household items without issue and protected from the elements.

I also had to replace my 16' utility trailers wood floor after a few years.

I rented an aluminum trailer for a day from Tractor Supply since my trailer was 125 miles away. I hauled a SxS on it and it worked great. A nice little trailer that they also sell.

I thought about the aluminum trailer from TS when I bought my steel/wood trailer. Since I don't use it very often I could not justify the additional expense. They are nice and light weight.
