Carpet for RV steps..

So I found some cheap rubber/carpet mats at Lowes, and I cut them up to fit my steps.



Now I need to glue them down.
Any suggestions for brand of glue that would work best?

You might want to use black zip ties instead of glue. You will need to replace them at some point.

You might want to try using some carpet tape instead of glue. They would be easier to remove for cleaning or replacement with a lot less mess to clean up.

What Dexter said...black zip ties work great, aren't noticable, hold well, but yet make inevitable replacement easy.

I don't see how he can use zip ties. His are cut to fit on top of the steps and don't wrap around like most. I think he's going to have to adhere them directly to the step somehow.

He could drill a couple of holes.

I did the same to my steps and used contact cement.
If it needs to be replaced, lacquer thinner will take glue off.

How about decorative duck tape. Just kidding maybe a good double face tape what ever you do will need to be good or they will be gone when you get to camp site. You could put eyelets in the corners then screw it down.

Looks good I like carpet on the steps, but a word of caution. I had the wrap around carpet with the springs on my Bounder steps. Where I park the Bounder I left my steps out and my lawn sprinkler system kept the carpet wet and caused the steps to rust and pit very bad under the carpet. Lesson learned don't leave the steps out and don't let them stay wet for expended periods. I may do the carpet on the steps again but remove it between trips.

Very nice looking. Might have to plagiarize you on this!

By the way, my steps have a square hole near each end of each step already. So some method of attaching these should be easy.

I'm thinking a thin wooden or aluminum dowel the length of the width-of-the-step could be held under the step by a black tie-wrap punched through the carpet in a loop. Would be hardly noticeable and easy to cut and replace.

Ok so I went through my extensive collection of random leftover nuts and bolts and found these short pan head bolts. They will hold it in place and were the perfect size for the holes already in the steps.
Then I used a little hot glue to keep the edges from rolling up.

I had no idea you already had holes in the steps. I was trying to keep from drilling holes.
