Rubber duck

I bought a 2-piece drivers rubber set for the driver's and passenger side of the truck. Put a rubberized mat down for the bunk area floor.Then another larger one for between the seats. It makes clean up a lot easier. It seemed I was always sweeping out the whole truck when I stopped for the night. The mat by the bunks is also cushioned about 10 bucks, the floor set was 16 bucks at Wallyworld, and the center mat was 11 bucks. But cleanup is much easier.Then I only have to remove the mats and sweep every 2 days.

I guess I'm too cheap to buy carpets and mats ( or hardwood lol ) I just took some of those rubber mats used by Westrock (Smurfit Stone) under their paper roll stock. I can cut them to fit, easily remove to dump or replace if damaged or too dirty. A little windex after a shop vacuuming and all good. They make great driver floor mats as they are custom fit and if it gets muddy I throw it away and cut another one. Since they are free I dont have to worry about them.

They have some heavy duties ones at The Home Depot. Expensive though talking like 75 dollars. They have one that i think Makita makes that I'm considering. Im not thrilled to be spending that kind of money but i bought a 30 dollar Black and Decker one but it shorted out after 3 months. Just stopped charging itself and really wasn't durable to begin with. Might as well go all out and be done with it.

I use pledge on my dash. Repels dust and leaves a nice scent, but even that will be slippery. I use floor mats, and I'm considering going with a large carpet remnant and cutting it to fit. My vacuum broke, so floor is dirty right now. I'm considering my options because I want a compact reliable vacuum for the truck.

They are awesome, but not cheap. :)

Walmart has 4 x 5 rugs that work great and are cheap

I have rugs too... but remember I have a furry friend on board. the attachments allow me to get under and around the seats, do the upholstery, mattress and curtains.

One of the perils of pets is massive hair everywhere. Sometimes I brush hi. and can build another cat with his fur.

You could make pillows stuffed with his shedding.

Transportation Worker Identification Credential

Truck drivers who regularly pick up from or deliver to the shipping ports will often be required to carry a TWIC card.

Your TWIC is a tamper-resistant biometric card which acts as both your identification in secure areas, as well as an indicator of you having passed the necessary security clearance. TWIC cards are valid for five years. The issuance of TWIC cards is overseen by the Transportation Security Administration and the Department of Homeland Security.
