Floor mats

Please advise, what type of floor mats do you have with your forester, E450 engine? Right now I donít have any and things can get pretty dirty.

I bought Husky floor liners from Amazon. They're a perfect fit. #33251.

I did have to attach a stud on the drivers side floor to hold it from moving forward. Tried velcro, did not last 5 minutes.

I used mat clips screwed to the floor to stop the rubber mats from slipping but now with the carpet underneath I donít need them.

Tomsby,

Did you already have the carpet in place when you got the mats? Or did you put down some carpet just to keep the mats in place?

I bought the rubber mats first, then I found the Lloyds carpet that covers the whole front. I use the 2 piece rubber mats on top to catch dirt and gravel, makes it easy to clean. The carpet is nice it covers the centre section between the seats as well.

If you enter the Motorhome body from the front seats, I think a one piece carpet would be best... I found it on Amazon from the seller, Downard Automotive. Looks like other Sunseeker owners have used this product. Ford Econoline E-Series Floor Mat Carpet Custom Fit Replacement 1 PC front Serged edges & Heel Pad - Black Fits 2006-2017

Do you find that adding the carpet makes the cab quieter or cooler to drive in?

lacrawgator, I did not get the Lloyd mats. I couldn't find them on their website. Google directed me to Amazon, where I found the ones I will order, as shown above. Here's the info. Ford Econoline E-Series Floor Mat Carpet Custom Fit Replacement 1 pc, from the seller, Downard Automotive. I'll put the rubber mats over them.

Iím not sure if the carpet made any difference but I lined the doors and engine cover with Dynamat heat and sound deadening material that quieted down the engine noise. Weíve never really had a problem with excessive heat.

We have the Highland rubber mats from Amazon. They come in three colors (black, tan, gray) for about 50.00. I think they help some with the insulation of the floor, as they are fairly thick and they do hold a decent amount of sand, etc. A one piece mat would have been nice, but we didn't want carpet.

Ok , I narrowed it down to two; the Lloyds Luxe one piece for $165.00 or the Quality one piece for $140.00. The Lloyds has a lifetime warranty and the Quality has a 2 year. The quality has a rubber heel plate.
