I'm looking for trailer floor sections for a cherokee trailer. They are smooth on top and have 3 ribs on the bottom. They join w tounge and groove, with just one 1/8 in rib on one side and reviving groove on the other. I need two 80'' long pieces if anyone has some or knows where I can get them.
Cherokee trailer is no longer in business and as I understand ever trailer manufacturer has there own proprietary design so I need help if anyone can.
Thanks Dave O

ave your trailer dealer see if they have contacts with junk yards that handle horse trailers...and scavenge some floorboards from a wrecked Cherokee

Realistically, you are looking for a needle in a haystack. While I don't know exactly what the Cherokee floor looked like, it sounds similar to many. In the real world, you are most likely going to just find as similar planks as possible (frankly whatever dealer you have closest by that may have some floor pieces), and fit them in. With some extra welding at the joint where it  may not quite fit together perfectly, coupled with possibly an angle or tube welded in underneath it, you can make something that will probably be stronger than the original trailer even.

Flooring material is just not something many dealers have sitting around. And there just aren't that many Cherokees, so hence my thoughts there just isn't a very good chance you'll find what you want. To Paul's note- while there may be one, I am not aware of a horse trailer boneyard. Virtually every trailer I have ever seen totaled, was either rebuilt, or there weren't any straight pieces left on it and it went for scrap metal.
