The back of our trucks and SUVs see all kinds of stuff. People throw outdoor gear, groceries, tools, sports equipment back there and often it is where our pets ride too. What is the best way to protect the original interior of your vehicle? A great and easy way to keep your car looking good is to invest in and install an all weather cargo liner or mat. All weather cargo mats can stand up to any kind of abuse you throw at it and it’s an easy thing to replace if it ever does wear out.
All Weather Cargo Mat Material Options
Whether you are looking for a cargo mat that is rigid and provides more structure or something soft and more flexible, you will find it with the choices AutoAnything offers. If you’re looking for something like the Maxtray all weather cargo liner mat, check out the WeatherTech cargo mat. You’ll love the high quality manufacturing of WeatherTech. It is made of Thermoplastic Elastomer (TPE) material that is 100% recyclable. This material is odor free so it’s a great choice for sensitive noses. The TPE material is soft rubber that is unaffected by freezing temperatures. Lloyds mats are made from 80 mil vinyl, similar to what you see under office chairs but much thicker. These clear mats offer great protection for your vehicle's interior without sacrificing the original appearance. If you are looking for rubber, the ProZ rubber mats are thick and heavy enough to withstand any abuse.
More options for all weather trunk mats include more flexible and pliable materials. Check out the heavy-duty waterproof polyester liner from Kurgo.

Just like the Kurgo, it is made of waterproof polyester on one side, flip it over and it’s lined with vinyl for your messier cargo. ArmorAll also offers a great all weather mat and that is easy to clean, easy to store and made of 50% recycled materials. The options are endless so you will be able to find exactly what you are looking for.
How To Choose the Best All Weather Trunk Mat For Your Car
If you know you need a cargo liner but you are still unsure of what will be best for you, start with what you carry. Take a look at what you toss into the back of your truck or SUV. If you carry a lot of gear that you don’t want damaged, you’ll want to look at mats that don’t slip around in your vehicle AND have a texture on the mat to help your precious cargo from slipping and sliding around in the back. If you are looking for something that simply keeps your original interior clean, look for a mat that is made of materials that are easy to maintain and clean. Pet owners are probably interested in softer materials to provide some comfort for your animal. As you start looking into cargo mats, definitely look at what you put in the back of your vehicle. That is a great way to determine the best all weather mat for your car.
