In this simple DYI project, we make a custom rubber floor mat for the campervan to protect the floor from dirt, mud and snow.
With the amount of rain and snow we get here in the Pacific Northwest, protecting the floor of my camper van from dirt, mud and rain is a priority.
I made a custom rubber floor mat the cover and protect the van’s original carpet. The mat is made from 1/8 inch rubber sheet and the edges are trimmed with a self-adhesive rubber trim.
The mat is waterproof, fits between the sliding captain’s chair and its track and feels warm to the feet. It’s high friction surface also helps to keep stuff from sliding around on the floor while driving.
This is a pretty easy DYI project that only takes about 90 minutes to complete.

Detailed description of mounting a Rhino-Rack roof rack and Yakima awning to the roof of a Mitsubishi Delica L400.
Also includes design and build of a quick-deploy “mini-awning” that can be set up in 30 seconds just to cover the side entry door area when the full-size awning is not needed.
We make custom bug nets to cover the camper van’s pop-out side windows for both insect and rain protection, with easy magnetic attachment to the van.
Campervan Ventilation & Heater
This post covers development of a custom ventilation fan and use of hcalory portable diesel heater to keep the van well ventilated and dry, thus protecting it from moisture, mold and mildew.
We finally get to test out the camper van conversion on its first camping trip in Olympic National Park to photograph the rainforest and wildlife.
