    Default Carpeting for camping trailer

    I plan to install automotive carpeting in my camping trailer. Is it preferable to do it in view of the fact that it can attract dust but on the other hand protect the stuff normally packed in a trailer?
    Does one glue the carpet onto the surface or can one use velcro to facilitate the removal of the carpet to clean it.?

    Also went this route a few years back when I had a XT140.I glued it.It does get lots of dust but once the weather is warm I emptied the trailer and went in with a hosepipe and some washing powder.Good fun.

    I used self adhesive carpet tiles
    Lusted for a Landy but the Pajero was sexier and bigger in the right departments, just like my Missus.

    Any reason to not use the rubber type clip together tiles?

    In the sleep area we use self adhesive tiles that we stick on with glue. I guess that if you use a roll carpet then you can have it attach with hook and loop. Depending on what you want to protect why not use rubber sheeting? that can be glued, doesn't attract dust and can be hosed down. . .

    I prefer to be able to remove the lot for a good clean. Velcro strips in strategic places to keep them in place...

    Ons gebruik van die mat wat in van die voertuie gebruik word. Die mure plak ons en die kaste se kante. Die vloer gedeelte sny ons dit so 5mm groter en pas dit los in die laai. Jy kan hom dan maklik skoonmaak na elke rit. Haal uit, skut en borsel en sit terug. Die wat ons plak vee jy af met nat lap. Nog nooit probleem gehad nie. Op die vloere van die kampers gebruik ons van die viniel teels wat plak. Werk uitstekend.
