Rubber or foam interlocking floor temporary

Has anyone ever used the interlocking squares to cover their wood floor as temp flooring to dry/find/fix leaks?

I've used those mats for various projects over the years. They are nice on the feet and easy to cut. But they WILL trap water underneath.

I used them to cover the carpet floor in our 13' Casita. I got them locally at an auto parts store . It only took 3 squares to fit the floor

I then covered them with carpet entry mats from Bed Bath and Beyond.

The reason, the mats would walk over the carpet with use, the rubber squares stopped that problem and added a bit of insulation to the floor and gave a nice feel to the floor.

In your case just use them in the walk ways.

The original carpeting is gross. I want it out. But, until I am sure that the trailer is dry, I can't put down a new floor. The rubber mats can be removed after each little trip.
