    We have removed the fitted carpet from our MH, for the summer at least. (Much easier to clean with 3 little furbabies!!)....However, OH (whose idea it was!!) :Doh: is moaning about the cold floor etc. :Rofl1:
    Wondering if any of you can recommend washable NON SLIP mats of any description?? :Wink: Thanks, Ana x

    Hi Ana

    We also took out the fitted carpet (it only fitted in some places:Doh:) and now just have a small rug (£6 from Lidl) in the lounge area. To stop it sliding, I have put a couple of anti-slip mats under it. This works for us - even the Jack Russell doesn't move it when he rearranges everything in sight in order to get a comfy sleeping position.

    The carpet in my van is well fitted so i didn't want to take it up in case it wouldn't go back properly. Bought some thin rugs from aldi cheapo 6' x 2' protects the original carpet, and can be taken out cleaned or replaced problem solved:BigGrin:

    They are bigger than that - slightly larger than A4 size. You can also get a roll that you cut to the size you want - I have seen these in Instore but I think you can get them at Pound shops.

    I have tried the non slip matting on top of the carpet with no success as it still managed to walk by itself. I also bought those gripper strips advertised in magazines and they walk also. Now only have carpet at the back of the van in the hope we can get to the muddy paws before they reach there, with the wood surface only at the door and the front area, excluding the cab.

    we left the sticky back clear plastic protective sheeting on our carpets.
    it was fitted by the dealer to stop the punters leaving muck on the carpets and has been down for 18months now and has served very well but is now in dire need of replacing.

    bit like thick clingfilm and the last time i saw it it was in aldi....£10 for a 30mtr(?) roll.

    remember...aldi's specials come round again each year so may be in store soon.

    ill be getting a couple or rolls when they do.
