    you could ask local carpet fitters, they usually have some decent small off-cuts

    hi, these days you can get rubber backed carpets cheap. aldi/lidl etc have them sometimes . i use one in my trailer and have a longer one in the hallway at home. cash n carry places have them as well.

    Got my 2 runners in Dunelms at £2.99 each. So cheap I just throw them away when they get dirty - mind you not had to do this yet and they've been in the van for a year!

    thanks, guys.
    have already tried our local carpet shops, but to no avail so far. will have a look in Dunelms and keep a lookout in Lidl/Aldi too. :Smile:
    previously we used offcuts from our kitchen carpet at home, but we've none left now. some years ago had Flotex which was really hard-wearing, but seems to cost a fortune now.
