The cargo tray is one of the first accessory you should get for your Odyssey. It fits in the rear well behind the third row seat. I recommend getting the Honda OEM cargo tray instead of the Weathertech cargo tray. I know Honda's only comes in black and the Weathertech cargo tray comes in gray, black or tan. But I have three good reasons why you should get the Honda cargo tray:

1. Functionality - the Honda cargo tray protects your rear well a lot better. The sides of the Honda cargo tray are higher (ranges from 4" in the back to 8" in the front, while the Weathertech is only 2" all around). It will hold more spilled liquids and catch more dirt.

2. Durability - the Honda material looks and feels more durable than the Weathertech (IMHO).

3. Fit - the Honda is contoured to the shape of the rear well and the side is higher in the front where the well is deeper, while the Weathertech is a flat tray with a 2" lip all around.

I know this because I have both. I originally ordered the Weathertech for the choice in color (tan). But after a month of using it and getting stuff from Home Depot, I ended up getting the Honda cargo tray from handapartsforyou.com to give my rear well better protection.

Just sharing my experience, FWIW.

I have pics of your Weathertech tray and will put them online this week. Thanks for sending them in and for the update.

Did the Weathertech not wear well?

I've only had it for a month so I don't know. I'm still going to use it on an every day basis. On occasions that I'll be going to Costco, Sams, Home Depot or Lowes, etc., I will simply put in the Honda cargo tray on top of the Weathertech. Also got the Honda cargo mat just in case
I need to make the magic seat 'disappear' to haul stuff.
