Ideas for Make Your Own RV Floor Mats

We have a "new to us" 2011 Fleetwood Southwind Class A - I'm unable to find any acceptable floor mats for the front driver and passenger areas.

Someone must have a few ideas & suggestions for Make-Your-Own floor mats for RVs or some similar solution?

We went to Walmart or Target and bought 2 small bathroom rugs that work great and even match the other carpeting in the coach. Something like $8 each and they serve their purpose. The size is 18 x 24.

Another member of this forum posted the they made card board cut-outs of the area and sent it off and had some made. Any good carpet store should be able to make some.

This is what I installed. http://www.weathertech.com/floor-mats-all-weather/
I bought cheaper ones and they got in the way. These are trim to fit but on mine no trimming required

I used these. Ruggids RV Door Mat - Black Granite - Prest-O-Fit 2-0480 - Doormats - Camping World They are very rugged. I got the brass eyelets from Harbor Freight and inserted them to line up with the studs that hold the seat pedestals down. I slid them over the seat studs and put a nut on top to hold the mats in place. I think you could also put velcro on the back.

I like your idea of the grommets to hold the mats in place. Thanks for sharing.

When we bought our new coach, there were carpet pieces (4 of them) cut to fit the steps, the passenger seat and the driver's seat. I took them to a carpet store that added rubber backing and trimmed the edges. They came out really nice and have held up well.

We found some nice rubber backed rugs at WalMart that fit perfectly in our 2016 Ace. The do the job and look very nice. Perfect fit. Cost? Less that $10 each as best I remember.

Those would be the same thing we used as mentioned a few posts back.

I do on of 2 things. for the steps I cut a piece of carpet to fit and then coat the edges with carpet glue. it keeps them from unraveling. I make several at a time so I can quickly replace them when the get tar on them. I use thinner pile carpet as I can clean with a wet rag several times. the other thing that works is cutting to fit hallway carpet runner. Got to get the heavy stuff, but it will last for years.

Since you want to make them yourself, you could consider a painted floor cloth on a vinyl or canvas base. Any size shape color or pattern that suits your rig. How to ideas on line, like this one http://www.addicted2decorating.com/diy-project-hand-painted-floor-cloth.html

Bought regular door welcome mat sized rugs from HD. Got a nice design that matched the coach. Not a perfect fit, but close enough.
