Where can I buy these?

I'm having the hardest time finding a may that will work with my ramp on my trailer. My trailer ramp has boards that lay horizontally on the ramp and then a Mat screws into them. Only problem is that the mat is 1/8 or 1/4 thick and I'm having the hardest time finding that size with a good amount of tread. If I get anything bigger then that size the ramp wont close. I've found rubber mats that come off a roll at Tractpr Supply but they have no tread which isn't going to work. Anyone have any ideas?

Also, the only thing holding in the windows is weatherstripping which is becoming hard to find. The current weatherstripping on there is dry and needs to be replaced but we cannot find it anywhere. We thought about caulking it but I would like to try to find the weather stripping first. I've checked the horse trailer accessory store online to no avail. Here's a picture of the weather stripping. I know it's not great.

The mat doesn't need tread on it. Have you called the company that built the trailer, for the window gasket? If they no longer use that style, I would call RV surplus stores.

It's an 88 trailet so they're no longer in business unless I try Hawk. And how doesnt it need tread? It's for the ramp

The pattern on rubber mat is usually just visually appealing. I've seen smooth, ribbed, tread plate designs, raised circles and they all worked just fine. It ads nothing to the function in my opinion.

Have you tried this place for parts?(found it in a Google search)
Trail-et Horse Trailers, Bumper Pull, Gooseneck Trailers, Living Quarters

You also might try doing a search for corrugated or ribbed rubber mats and see what you come up with. The ribs might provide a little more traction if laid horizontal than a regular stall mat for your ramp. Otherwise you might try those tacky strips they use for boat docks on your boards? I don't know I never actually owned a trailer with ramp..LOL.

Our trailer ramp has a rubber mat without any ridges or tread and We've never had a problem with it getting slick. Those rubber mats are pretty tacky all by themselves.

That's weird. We had a rubber mat on ours and it was worn and got pretty slick and was horrible in the rain.

Years ago laths were nailed to the ramp about every 12". If the horse's foot started to slide the lath would stop it. This is lighter and a lot cheaper than matting.
