Just get regular 3/4 inch 6 foot x 4 foot stall mats and trim them with a jig saw to fit. They're heavy enough to stay put on their own, they won't roll up, and sometime you can find perfectly good used ones on CraigsList for super cheap.

Also I find rubber doesn't slip a lot when weighed down by a 1200 pound animal.Measure twice, cut once and you won't have any fitting problems, and if you do just shim with the trimmed off pieces.

We went with a antislip rubber mat from farm and fleet. Measured and cut it :) Fits great we did screw it down. Though we have spaces in between the boards for them to dry out

Also if you have the stall mats just stand them on edge then use your vice grips on each end to grip the mats and 2 people can Carrie them out of the trailer.
