Radial Step Carpet

We've got radial steps. On our last camper we got a step cover for $15-18 at CW. We bought one and thought we'd see how it did. It worked well, but even with boot scrapers at the bottom and a large patio mat we still tracked in more dirt than we wanted. Before we could get the other two covers we traded our rig in for a larger one.

Now we have two doors, and twice as many steps, so I decided to make my own.
I found a fairly flexible indoor outdoor carpet in Home Depot's bulk carpet isle for $0.40/sf. I got a 22 inch strip of 12 ft wide carpet. I cut them 22 X 22 and found I liked the orientation and the fact that it overlapped. The overlap allowed me to put four holes, 3 inches in from the edge, along the two edges parallel to the step using an awl, and figured with the 3-inch margin I could skip grommeting it. I secured the carpet to the step with four 14" zip ties through the holes, starting at the middle and working out. For the price of one, I got 6 steps.

Without grommets, I think it will eventually tear thru, but I could be wrong.
