Weathertech in Ford Transit chassis

New LTV Wonder. According to Weathertech their mats will not work in the carpeted version of the Ford Transit cutaway chassis used in these rigs. Has anyone tried them? Apparently they won't work due to the retention mechanism employed to keep the mats in place. I get that as I have used their mats in other vehicles.

Equal alternatives? The Weathertech are pretty hard to beat...

Buy the Weathertechs from somewhere you can return them and see if it works. I did this on my Sprinter recently and it turns out they work fine.

We also have the 2018 LTV Wonder FTB … found the floor mats like Weathertech on Amazon to fit the Ford Transit. It is "Maxfloormat" sold by Vehiclethings. Also cheaper than the Weathertech floor mats that we had in the Sprinter.

Hope that helps.

I was trying to avoid plugging Amazon, but I could have returned within 30 days. Maybe yours will fit except for some small areas that you can cut yourself. I was mostly installing to cut noise and hand cut a layer of carpet pad and then a heavy rubber door mat just under the weathertech product. Meaningful reduction in noise. And easier to clean than the original carpet.

OK, Maxliner is it. Real sorry I couldn't buy the USA made Weathertech. The Max is a tight fit but seems good. Have not driven with it so can't comment on its potential for moving around or snagging feet, etc., but suspect it will be fine.

Before I tried to stuff it in there I let it sit on the driveway in the sun. Maybe overdid that a bit but I think it helped the install (a bit too hot to handle...).
