Finally! Someone else who is looking for what I've also been searching. I too, have spent countless hours on the internet looking for this rubber/vinyl. I also checked with dealerships and finally a Ford dealer. The dealer didn't have anything that would fit my old boat (1998) Gulfstream Ultra, but the 2014 he found would cost about $600! Seemed pretty pricey. So I now have another sympathetic ear looking for me at the local RV dealership. Please let me know if you have had any luck and I will do the same. Where are you located? Hubby and I are in Coopersville area and camp with our horses.

Our little old Toyota chassis camper of yester-year had the industrial rubber flooring in the cab. It never looked nice but it sure was ideal for camping. When our current-day RV installed front cab carpet gets ratty enough, I'll be on the hunt for the same as you.

Here was our little Toyota camper cab floor.
The rest of the camper interior was tired with the walls and ceiling coming down looking like bed curtains HERE

I replaced the old carpet in my E350 Coachmen with carpet bought at Home Depot. It was a very easy job. I removed the seats, doghouse and plastic inserts around the step wells. I removed the old carpet and used that as a template for the new material. I also used spray glue in the installation. It came out very nice.

Hey Mich F,

My DH wants to replace the cab carpet (after watching carpet replacement in an old car on Wheeler Dealers) and found this thread on a Google search! I see this post was a year ago, any issues since the install? Any additional tips to share? Seems pretty straightforward and simple, and yours looks great.


Cheers!

I put in the new carpet in Oct 2013. I had another MH I was using at that time while renting that MH out a few times before selling it in Dec. 2014. I never had any issues with it while I owned it.
I don't recall any issues doing the install, other than being careful while removing and reinstalling the trim pieces. It would be fairly easy to break the clips that hold them in place.

My 'C' (that I bought new) had carpeting in the cab area. I installed rubber mats over the top of the carpeting the first week. They're easy to remove and clean on the garage floor. They're a little worn by now, but it won't be expensive to replace them. The carpet underneath still looks new.
On foot, I seem to be able to find the single 3 foot diameter mud puddle in a 3 acre field in bright sunlight.


Retired and visiting as much of this beautiful country as I can.

Mich F,

Your picture appears to have the house floor at the same plane as the cab floor....no step. Is that right?

BTW: Nice job done. Good to know. Thanks for sharing!

There is a step in that MH, it's only 3 or 4" if I remember correctly. My son replaced the really bad looking house carpet (it was turning an orangeish color) with wood look vinyl strip flooring, and I redid the cab. It did come out looking very nice, thank you.
