 Replacing trailer wood floor

I aquired a 10' landscape trailer that has rotted wood floor. The floor fits into metal channel(?) beams.....
Any tricks to fitting the new wood back into thse channels?
Thanks!

A friend of mine jacked his up in the middle to let it flex, thus spreading the front and rear channel apart enough to insert the new timbers. Don't know if yours is the same setup but it worked for this particular brand.

 Replacing trailer wood floor

I replaced the deck on a 16' trailer that I had. It had the same channels on the ends that you describe. I worked from the outside in, both sides. Most of the boards just slid in. When I got to the middle 2 I fit one end in the channel, the other end under and jacked up the middle of the board until the end snapped into place. Might be harder to do that with the shorter board length though.

How about cutting the board so that the cut lines up with a supporting cross member and then securing it with screws through the cross member......

or using a Simpson Strong Tie product to restore the integrity of the lumber?

If I were doing it this way I would alternate the cuts with for and aft cross members to ensure the maximum possible strength.
