Even with tie downs, especially the spring loaded variety the camper can still shift on the slippery smooth surface of a plastic drop-in liner.

The liners are not difficult to remove and can be stored for reinstallation for times when you need to protect the bed of the truck, like hauling a load of gravel.

I used a thick rubber mat that was designed to fit my truck bed. I would never consider using a plastic liner on the painted bed surface. IMHO two smooth surfaces could have been trouble. My Lance sat on the mat and did not move at all. I removed the mat when I hosed out the bed area.

P.S. Several years ago a coworker mentioned that he left home with a plastic bedliner in his truck and when he arrived at work, it was gone. He didn't see it fly out of the back of his truck.
