Slippery non slip ramp.

I loaded 2 of my dirt bikes up in my new Vengance 25v while it was raining. What appears to be a non-slip surface on the ramp door is quite slick when wet. It's even worse loading up after camping and racing in the rain and mud!..Has anyone done anything to improve the traction on the ramp door?
Thanks
Bob

You can buy non-skid adhesive material at a hardware store. Maybe you can bolster the existing material with some of that. It may be more aggresive/coarser than your slippery when wet material. Or the existing material is clogged with dirt/mud, and needs a good brushing to restore it?

It's brand new and clean...I don't believe a roll of adhesive anti skid will bond to the existing surface as it is not smooth..

Don't they make an Anti-skid paint that you could roll on and make like a track to roll the bikes on ?? Swear I've seen paint like that. Maybe just a dumb suggestion.

Answer to post #4--Yes. I used this type paint when I bought a new cargo trailer with ramp some years back. The problem was that as I went in and out of trailer the non-skid material wore off. A friend of mine suggested a coating kit made by "Rust-O-Leum" that is for painting the inside of truck beds. That stuff worked really good. The only drawback, now I know, is that you have to mix up a gallon. It took about 1/3 of a gallon to put a good coat on my ramp. The leftover is an epoxy mix so you can't keep it. The coating is still good on that door. About $100 bucks for the kit back then

Any good thick exterior paint and add grit prior to drying
