Garage Flooring

What is the standard floor covering material on the garage floor. Does it hold up well to gasoline drips? Is it easy to clean? Are there any optional flooring materials that are better?

What do you want?
Shiny? Non-skid? Color? Where are you putting it?
It's easy to put a coating down-getting it to stay down is the tricky part.
Do you have pics of the area and an idea of what you want?
I used to be a commercial waterproofing contractor in Los Angeles, so hopefully I can get you going in the right direction. It's literally painting the floor with three or four coats. The surface preparation is the tough part.

There really is no "standard" garage flooring. As stated above, it depends on what you're looking for in a covering for the cement!

I picked up some rubber mats at Menards (our local hardware store) and put it down where I park. They are a little expensive but I really like them. They fit together like puzzle pieces and you can trim them to size.

All of the trailers that I have seen have a light gray textured floor in the garage area. Is this the standard floor? What options does the factory offer for flooring in the garage?

Are you looking at trailers with a dedicated garage? The smaller Toy Haulers that don't have dedicated space for the garage all have the same flooring that the rest of the trailer has. I'm figuring the floor is the first thing they put in before anything else.

Yes, a dedicated garage.

It is usually an epoxy paint with fine sand (#60) sprinkled in the top coat.
What is on the surface now?

There is a video showing how they build a toy hauler.
