Main door threshold?

I'm getting ready to install flooring over an entirely new 5/8" plywood subfloor. I'm close to making a decision on the flooring product (probably marmoleum but luxury vinyl is another alternative) and need to find a good exterior door threshold. Any great suggestions that hold down the wood and protect the edge of the plywood in this relatively exposed area?

Also, a couple folks have told me that some of the flooring adhesives turn brittle, crunchy, & fail when exposed to freezing temps. If you have recommendations on the best adhesive for trailers, that would also be appreciated.

Thanks in advance

Adding a picture

My written description isn't very clear - so here is a drawing. Basically, I've seen an exterior main door threshold solution that I like and would love to get as close to it as possible. Attached is a drawing. The one I've seen uses has a smooth ramp that facilitates sweeping small bits of dirt out the main door, caps the end of the sub-floor, and has a little drip gasket.
