I have been trying to locate a supplier of aluminum planks. I would prefer to replace a few sections of my planking which are pitted versus sheeting over the floor. Trailer is a 2000 Sooner Revolution with aluminum floors. Planks are 10.25" (w) x .5" (d) approximately, lengths vary and are interlocking edges. Sooner manufacturer has no information or help.
If you have any sources I would really appreciate it.

I think Sooner, Featherlight and Exiss are all made by Universal now and if I understand it right, a trailer as old as your may not have a compatible design for the planks they currently use now. I just went thru this with my trailer. Even finding a suitable flooring replacement today with aluminum is going to be super expensive not because of materials, but the labor involved in repair.

Thanks for the reply. I have investigated several planks but none seem compatible. Just have a few spots to repair and it appears like my best option is to sandblast current floor, seal/paint, cover with aluminum sheets 3/16. I will have to screw the mats down so they won't slide.

I think your Al sheeting idea is your cheapest route but can't you find Al diamond plate? I know trailers that came from the factory with sheet flooring and the mats don't slide, but they are wall to wall and hold each other in place.
