I had Husky's in our last rig and they worked awesome. They never moved. I too am interested in different floor mat options available.

I use them and have had no issues.
However, I do use industrial Velcro for a lot of things. This should work well to stick the velcro loop part on the Huskey Liner. Then it should just attach right to the carpet or your regular floor mats.
It may be worth a try and save some $

Joe, I hated mine too, was always catching my feet on them coming and going. Finally I took the van to Ford and had them take the front seats out, rip out the carpeting (which I also hated) and put in the kind of industrial rubber matting the contractors use. Now all is well.

You can find some pretty darn good velcro at fabric and hobby stores or at Wally World in the fabric and hardware areas. They are even multiple styles (two sided or one) and widths.

I got those plastic tray type mats supplied by SMB. Mine would creep forward all the time so I put a loop and snap on it, then connected it to the seat. They stay put now. For the cabin I just cut out a cheap carpet to fit and it works well, never slipped yet.

CJ,
I generally get it at Home Depot. It is in a box that has about 3' length rolled up in it. it is 2 inches wide or so.

I use it for everything.
