Anyone find any custom after market floor mats yet for the Carnival? Have checked Weather Tech and Tough Pro - nothing yet.

Carpet mats will do for now but will definitely want to upgrade to something nicer!

I called Weathertech last week and they do not even have a delivery date for custom fit mats yet. They do offer a 4 pc. "Trim to Fit" mat. These are 27" long x 19" wide for $49.95 (part #11AVMOTHSB). You can buy the same set at Costco for $29.95. Sam's Club offers their own Members Mark "Universal Fit" 4 pc. set. It is 28.7" long x 20.3" wide for $19.95.

The front row of the Carnival has a footbed that is widest near the seat at 23", then tapers to 21" before sloping upwards. Fitting either of these mats to the front row passenger side of the Carnival is easy. For the Members Mark mat, about 1.5" needs to be trimmed from the upper right corner.

The driver's side of the Carnival is a different story. This is one of the few vehicles the uses a hinge on the bottom of the accelerator. This isn't a big deal, unless you need to control liquid, like melting snow. The hinge is about 14" from the rear of the mat and is close to the flat part of the footbed, so you will need to make a hole in the mat for this hinge, with a slit that allows it to be installed around the hinge. This is where the liquid can leak out. It will be interesting to see how Weathertech and the others deal with this with their custom fit mats. There is also a footrest on the left side of the driver side footbed like most vehicles have, and you will have to trim the mat for this.

I ended up choosing the Members Mark 4 pc. set because it is wider and cheaper and nearly the same quality. Choose a set that has been on the shelf for a while so it has had time to outgas most the chemical smell. It took me about 30 minutes to install them and these are far better than nothing. I may even forget about the custom fit mats and save some money.

Just received and installed the custom mats I ordered from Custoarmor today. Looks and feels pretty good. Only con is that the mats for 2nd and 3rd row are a little short on the sides so it has a small gap as you can see in the pictures attached. Not a big deal because overall it looks pretty good. What do you guys think?

Interesting find. How much did they cost?

I was hoping that Tuxmat.ca would have their mats ready but no dice. However a few days ago, they did email me and say that they are being designed as we speak but are still a few months away from being available.

Weather Tech floor mats finally delivered today. Ordered on June 3rd. Extremely happy with the fit. I had them on my previous vehicle and can’t recommend them enough. Also have it for the cargo area. View attachment 341

Can you take a pic of the cargo mat? Is it the same material as the drivers and passenger mats? I'm only getting the cargo with the bumper protector since I got my mats from another vendor. I've had Weathertech for my Mazda and while I like them, it isn't as easy to clean as the ones I got now. Looks good!

Yes, it's a little flimsier than the front floor mats, but I enjoy that because if something spills (kids snacks, sand from beach, etc) I can slightly fold it in half and shake it out. Comes out very easy and can just take a hose to it to clean it. When I ordered this a few weeks ago they did not offer the bumper protector or I would've paid the extra money for that one. Nonetheless I'm extremely happy with it.

Hello! I know this message comes 2 months late, but I finally got my hands on some WeatherTech floor mats; HOWEVER, as mentioned earlier by someone else, only the first row and cargo mats (optionally with the bumper flap, as well) are available. No one, as far as I’m concerned will all my searching, makes the 2nd and 3rd row mats, yet. If you wait until all are available, whenever that may be, WeatherTech will take up to $45 off your total for the combo of ALL floor mats for your Carnival; However, this option is not yet available.

Weather Tech has them available at WeatherTech.com, but I actually got mine from AutoAccessoriesGarage.com. They will price match to Weather Tech’s prices, and give a 5% discount off your total if you can provide proof of Military/Vet service. I asked them what was the point of buying through them vs directly through WT, and they told me because they’re available all the time. Well it’s no joke. When I opted to chat with them, they took care of my issue within the minute. And when I called them directly, after selecting my choice for calling, a human picked up immediately and was very helpful.

Below is a pic of my order (pics don’t match the actual item, it’s just a general image, but the item skus are there) They are pricey, but my husband checked prices for his 2011 VW gti, and WT mats we’re almost as expensive as these new-to-the-market ones, and the cargo mat was actually much cheaper than his. So 🙌🏼🙌🏼. BTW, I ordered today (6/17/21) and they are set to ship no later than 6/22/21 and from there are delivered within 3-5 days generally. As for taxes, that depends on your state. From what they told me “FL doesn’t charge taxes on the mats.” 🤷🏻‍♀️ PA def does.

Alternately, I did find an Amazon seller with their version of WT mats for a slightly cheaper price, but the wait to receive them currently is a bit nuts. Cargo mats can be ordered, but they don’t know when they’ll be available for shipping.
