I had the carpet kit in my 2004 SSR and I liked it a lot. Then I get my 2005 SSR without the carpet kit and I found that I really liked the look of the entire bed uncarpeted. The only thing I would want would be a bed mat just to line the bottom and to be easily taken in and out if need be.

I cannot find any after market bed mats for sale for the SSR although Gmpartsdirect.com seems to have some kind of mat (they call it large mat, or small mat, no pictures so I am not buying). So I raise the question: What are you using as a bed mat to those that do not have a carpet kit? If you are, what are you using? And, would you post pics?Also, if anyone knows about any bed mats availble lead me in the right direction.

Thanks in advance!

I have the carpet and strips and I use a Yoga mat over the top to keep it from scratching plus the Yoga mat comes in lots of different colors and designs and it keeps everything from sliding around.!!!

GMgoodwrench has a bed mat for sale as well but alas...no pics, no money from me. I dod not understand why GM has a bunch of accessories availble for the SSR with absolutely no Pics anywhere! The dealers I have gone to do not even have them! Part numbers do not mean a thing to me, show me the goods! I have money to burn GM get those pics up!

:lol

They are made by exactmats and they come in clear or black. You can find them at exactmats.com or on ebay.

thanks for that Jeff! I need to get carpet first, but those will work great as an extra cover. All I really want is some decent looking carpeting to lay flat on the bed. There has got to be some out there! :ssr

Have you tried to see how a black indoor outdoor carpet would look. Just a thought.

Try some of the local car upholstery and carpet shops. I think you will find someone who can make exactly what you want for less than you might expect.

I ordered a "custom" carpet, with proper bound edges, and am really happy with the results.

The contact info is:

RVandVan Surplus.com
888-303-8586 "Mark"
You could duplicate my order no. S33405

"42" x 50" charcoal carpet for SSR, bound edges"
ordered 2-21-05 $38+$14 shipping

They have other colors, but I wanted the closest they had to pure black (NObody offers truly black carpet!), so ordered "charcoal".

kwhopper89: I do NOT think you could use the side saddles with my solution. I believe the side saddles requires access to the outside floor rails to fasten in, and my carpet covers those.

This was not a factor for me as I don't like the way the side saddles make the bed area far less versatile than what I want.

The SOFT side saddles, like Buffy has, MIGHT work with this arrangement.

Soft sided bags

The soft side saddles should work fine - they connect to the upper side channels.

My only concern with the carpet would be the scratching of the bed strips!!!

I called them - price quoted was $49 plus shipping. I thought that was a pretty steep increase since February.

Did you actually quote my order number and price to them? If not, you should!

Or, maybe they found they lost money on mine! They did it as a fully custom job for me.
