Our rig came with a fitted, industrial type carpet over the tile. The rig came from FL and has Crown Club on the carpet so I assume it was custom made for Lazy Days.
Looks a lot like the industrial black carpet you see at Home Depot or Lowe's.

I am a commercial flooring contractor and purchased a level loop commercial grade carpet. I had my normal installers install it and they did a great job. A little technical note were the carpet transitions to a resilient floor ( tile or wood ) have the installer "turn and tack" the carpet edge or use a "Fire place metal" transition. This will give you a finished edge without any molding strip.

I cheated :)

I have a new to me Class A that came with wood floors. I knew they'd be scuffed beyond repair on the driver's side in short order, so right away I bought a bathroom toilet mat in a nice shade of brown to complement the wood floor and just laid that down. The cutout goes nicely around the base of the driver's seat and the carpet covers the floor all the way up to the pedals.

Bonus: when they get dirty you can just pick it up and shake it out or toss in the washer. Got super dirty? Just buy another one for ten bucks.

Same as GearGirl, but not the toilet mat. I just pick up whatever small mat Wally World has cheap that day. Not a bath mat, because I don't want fluffy shag, but any other kind of short-knap mat about 2x3 or smaller, as long as it's at least mildly non-skid and some kind of earth tone. Change it out every few months.

We bought a really good grade carpet from a local carpet dealer. We had mats made from the same carpet for the entry and under the driver's feet. We use double-sided carpet tape to hold the mats in place! We have enough of the carpet left to replace these mats in the future when they wear out!

I buy cheap 20"x30" door matts that are carpet with a rubber back. If they get very dirt or get road tar on them, throw them in the trash and buy another

I have a brown carpet/mat bought from Walmart. There were reveal similar there. Dunno the dimensions off-hand, it fits very well the area under my feet at the drivers seat. Has kind of a rounded shape on one side, straight on the other. About $5 iirc.

We bought a couple almost matching mats from Wal*Mart for about $1 each. The ridges run the long way rather than crosswise that would match the original one but the color is exact.
