Have a 2008 VDJ78 troopy and need either a decent set of mats for front AND rear seat or does anyone know of a replacement vinyl floor. The kids are slowly trashing the carpet. Unfortunately the 5 seater didnt come with a vinyl floor.

Maybe have a look at the sand grabbers or mud grabbers that are made in QLD. They are custom made, and after 7 years in my previous car, the carpets look like new underneath. Pricey but you get what you pay for.

Why not use a set of Vinyl mats. I got a very good set from Auto Barn to suit the front of a VDJ79. They are trimable. They also have flat mats for the rear and at less than $100 for the two sets, it would be cheaper than trying to retrim with a vinyl floor.

Struth, Bush wanderer and I were typing at exactly the same time lol. The mat idea seems to be winning

;-)

Should have added that you should call them if you don't see a floor for a troopcarrier. Don't ask via email as they can be very slow to respond.

I have had Sandgrabba's in my Patrol for 5 years and they work fine. Not cheap, but u get what u pay for. They have model specific mats so yrs shud not be a hassle.

cheers

I have had SandGrabbers for 100,000km and they are excellent, still like new. Carpet still like new.
They are moulded to fit each different type of vehicle and are raised around the edges so that dirt and rocks and moisture will not run over the side on to your carpet.
Others in my 4WD club have used alternative mats and there is no comparison.

If you relax at a faster pace you can get more relaxation in for a given time.

We have the same vehicle as you.
So far my Husband has made mats from marine carpet just to make it easier to clean and protect carpet underneath. I think he found the drivers side moved too much when he gets in and out so has a cheap car mat from the likes of any Auto shop (trim-able type that someone else mentioned) for that side only. We have the same cheap car mats in our other sedan type car but really in the back where the kids are I find they don't stay in place anyway!

I guess as they say if you buy the good ones you probably only have to do it once. Just depends if you're really wanting to protect the carpet or just something to make it a bit easier to clean I guess.
