Trailer ant-skid tread pads

Anyone know where I can order some of the rubber replacement anti-skid trailer step pads? I have a 2007 MasterCraft X-15 trailer.

Thanks!

I've been looking into this myself but don't plan to do the stock pads. A couple guys have replaced theirs with traction padding similar to Sea Deck, which while they do have a template for my tandem axle trailer was really expensive. As such I'm going to give making my own a shot.

So here are a couple I've been looking at….

Aqua Marine Deck seems to be the cheapest. https://www.aquamarinedeck.com/
$134 for a full 39”x78” sheet

Agenda is another cost effect supplier. http://agendasurf.com/molded-diamond...-pwc-boat.html
$119 for 47x86

Hydro Turf is the cheapest so far at $75 a sheet. http://hydroturf.com/products/man/Sheets_of_Turf

I used hydro turf look on amazon under 50 bucks I think. Then I cut out the MC logo and glued it to trailer. 2 year ago still looks good.kinda hard to see but here are before and after.

i used this stuff:

It feels just like the original stuff we removed when we repainted the trailer too. It's textured rubber, not like the skateboard grip tape. This is the only picture I can find on my work computer:

I used the hydro-turf, came out pretty good I thought. Seems to be holding up well.
