I use $20 Walmart carpet in the cargo area (folded over to fit) to keep the original carpet looking good and replace every few years. In my old van, I removed the carpet to fully clean it once and while it looked great when done, it was too much work!

Nice seats buddy. I didn't think about it, I have some left over beigeish carpet remnant from my house in the attic. Maybe I can lay some of that in the van. NEW PROJECT!!

I have an area rug from Ollie's bargain outlet in mine. I seamed (overlapped) it underneath the back seat.

Thanks. Eventually I want to replace the carpet with bamboo flooring and insulation underneath. Thought I'd have been able to get to it before now.
