Padding material for horse trailer

I am re-doing a trailer I just bought. What is a good material to upholster the padded areas with? We get some wicked humidity here in SC so I need to to withstand moisture.

How about canvas? Doesn't crack like vinyl, which seems to be the norm in most trailers.

I thought about that but I worry that it would get dirty way to quick. It has some kind of vinyl plasticy stuff in it now that aside from fading looks great....it's just an ugly pee color that I don't want to look at lol

How about some kinda rubber , instead of padding and covering ? Maybe something like anti fatigue matting a couple layers thick.

I want to re-do the padding inside the horse trailer..but I am afraid if I remove the plastic rivets I won't be able to re-attach the padding once it is covered. Any suggestions?
