Can you buy a suitable carpet from a regular carpet shop?

You could use the old carpets as a template, cut the shapes out and ask the shop to whip stitch them for you.

Aberdeen Binding Company on google might be useful.
Hope this helps.

I own a carpet shop and can tell you that it should be easy to find a shop that can whip the edges for you, I'd probably recruit a local carpet fitter to cut the mats properly square for you, you could plan the irregular shapes to get them from the rectangular piece of carpet that you'll have to buy. I'm going to use gel backed office carpet when I get my ass into gear, it's more water resistant and designed to be as tough as nails. We have some stuff called 'Traffic' goes under a couple of other names too, damn nice stuff, and not expensive for the sizes we're talking about

note : if fully fitted, it shouldn't fray, would be probably simpler, and cheaper without the whipping

As above took a template using brown paper got an off cut from a carpet was going to have it whipped but decided not to bother because of price. Carpet has been fine it lies flat. Have enough carpet left to make another when this one gets to dirty.

I've had carpets whipped in the past and it costs more than the carpet. I've just fully fitted my van quite easily, its fiddly but not very big. I had to buy some chrome edging strip from B&Q but it now looks very swish.

Never got the carpets on the invoice and charged £320 for I went back to Lowdhams and was told get some made up, the new ones not ordered with the van were £640 after sale and they were not going to pay that..In the end I bought some carpet from the lady who does the shows and cut my own up. They work just fine and are washable in the machine as well. Could not be bothered chasing Lowdhams any more, and let it go. I paid £30 for all of the roll. I have seen the genuine ones and they are rubbish compared with odd bits tacked together with studs.
