I think Honda made their mat shorter because its easier to roll-up and get the magic seat out. But that weathertech mat looks like it gives good protection to the whole back. It's like an oversized cargo tray!<font face="Verdana, Arial" size="2">Originally posted by errol:
Makes you wonder why Honda didn't size their mat like weatertech.
A heavy tarp could work, but shower curtains, unless they were made of rubber (now there's an idea for a new thread!), wouldn't stand up to the abuse. I have tried lots of ad hoc solutions (old curtains and blankets, mainly), but I wanted to find something heavy duty that wouldn't take three hands to keep from moving around when I am sliding a heavy sheet of particle board into the back, like what happend to me last week at the Home Depot. I may just try to find a heavy mat for another van or application that is bigger and cut it down-$129 for something that I know will get torn up is rather unattractive.<font face="Verdana, Arial" size="2">Originally posted by sdp:
I always use tarps for that type of hauling. You can get a size to fit pretty well, they're tough, relatively cheap, easy to fold up and stow, and there's a choice of colors to boot!
