Any ideas on purchase or making driver and passenger floor mats?
Is there anyplace that sells them?
I have tried cutting carpet with rubber backing, but it just moves and rolls up forward and does not stay in place very good.
I have a 2004 Newmar Scottsdale with a Workhorse chassis.
Thanks ................

Are you looking for a custom fit front carpet type mat that covers the entire area or just a pre-cut standardized mat that will work?

Patty and I purchased a office chair mat. The thick kind for a chair on carpet. We made a template of the front of the coach(entrance and drivers side). Cutting caused a few blisters. We then covered it with some rubber backed carpet. It has worked very well for us.

I also used a heavy office chair mat that I cut for under the driver's wheel. I used a jig saw and then sanded the edges. It is easier to clean and I feel more comfortable with it under my feet than a moving carpet.

"Wade" at Lazy Days in Florida makes custom mats for the front and steps. They snap to the floor, the steps are velcroed, and are easy to clean. Since it's a custom job you must be there but we had ours measured and installed in 24 hours with no problem.

I just had floor mats made for my 2008 Canyon Star. The MATDEPOT.COM will make them for you, but you must provide a template. To my knowledge there is no after market company that makes mats for RVS. The mats you have made from the matdepot are LLoyd mats which are the best in the industry. You can also have clear overlays made at the same time. Talk to Gary at matdepot and he can help you with the process.

We used nice thick, but still inexpensive, oriental rugs. I think they were about 2' x 3' each.

We cut holes in the driver's mat for the steering column, brake treadle valve, and accelerator pedal. Slits between the steering column hole and the forward edge of the rug let me install it. The tight fit around the column & pedals as well as the generally very stiff nature of the carpet kept that mat in place very well.

The rug in the entry way didn't need any holes cut in it, so we we used Mat-Lok fasteners to hold the rug to the living room/entry carpet.
