Get customer floor protection with this handy tip.
Our new trailer had wall-to-wall carpeting, and we were forever tracking in dirt and getting the carpet at the entrance dirty.
I made a cardboard template of the entryway area. Then I bought a plastic floor mat — the type used over carpet to allow office chairs to move about — from an office-supply store. Using the template of the entrance area, I cut the plastic mat to custom-fit the space.
I then spray-painted the backside of the mat the approximate color of the carpet.
Editor’s Note: Be sure to allow the paint to dry fully before placing the mat on your carpet. Evaporating solvent from the paint could damage the carpet if the paint isn’t cured first.
