Was thinkin' on getting a cargo mat as it won't be til this summer to get started on my build. Need something to keep things from sliding around so easy as it does on the bare metal floor. Quieting it down a little too would be nice. Anyone had any experience with either of these cargo mats?
Weatherguard Van Cargo Mat or the Vantred Rubber Cargo Mat.

Get something that will be compatible with your build. Is the cargo mat the final floor or are you going to put something on it?

You can't wash the carpeted mat but you can with a rubber one. The carpeted mat holds on to debris and has to be vacuumed often in order to stay clean. I bought the carpet style for padding and insulation but ended up topping it off with a rubber gym mat that isn't cut to fit so I can slide it out and wash it off when needed. Best craigslist $10 buy yet!

Been pondering that. Was thinking I'd either leave the mat down and plywood over it or take it up, put down plywood and then put the mat down again over the plywood. guess it depends on the mat material and thickness.

I'd just cut to the chase and put in a floor. 1 inch polyiso and 3/4 inch hardwood ply. 3 sheets each. Even with trips to the store it shouldn't take more than about a day. The only snags that I hit were sourcing the polyiso and getting long enough bolts to use the factory tie down spots (M8 x 1.25 - 70mm - amazon)
