Here are a couple pictures covering the floor with smooth ply, than making a template to cut out the vinyl.
The vinyl was cut and laid in one 17 +, foot piece.

Mud and dirt just dries on the surface and comes right off. On a plush carpet, the mud penetrates the fibers as a "stain" - this does not happen with commerical carpet because the fibers are not absorbant, and yet, oddly enough the stuff feels soft to the touch. Think of "Polartec Fleece" for a moment. It is made of PLASTIC and yet it is very soft to the touch. The industrial carpeting is made from a similar polypropelene plastic and thus absorbs nothing.
How is this product different than indoor outdoor carpet which is real cheap?
Mind you, I am a hardwood floor person and am just considering carpet for 68 Overlander and screened in porch...
