How do you like the full vinyl floor? Do you have any complaints with it, or does it ever get slippy?

Thanks again

My impact has full vinyl floor. Not sure if Lund still offers that?

Pros:
EASY clean up
Virtually snagless
Good traction when dry
Hides spots you didnít clean up really well

Cons:
Hot - Over about 85įF on sunny days itís hard to stand on bare footed, a towel where your standing works well
More slippery than carpet when wet
Can tear on edges where it sees a lot of use
Can lift off in corners if factory didnít glue properly

To me, the pros outweigh the cons and Iíd do it again. Carpet IMO wears too easily, stains, and is a bear to clean at times. Hooks are also difficult to dislodge.

Others probably have their opinions on this matter as well. If my boat saw more recreational days with the family Iíd probably go with carpet due to it getting really hot.
