Floor in cargo area


Hi All,

I was wondering if anyone has replaced there floor in the cargo area - above the drawer (T31). I was thinking of replacing the standard with some MDF. The reason for replacing is due to the family dog!

Why don't you get the rubber tray for the boot area from Nissan instead?

Re: Floor in cargo area


I want something a little stronger than the standard floor. Our puppy is only 6 months old and already weighs 20kg. Im guessing that hes going to weigh in at around 40-50kg fully grown so I want a floor that can sustain his weight. As for the wear & tear of jumping in and out, I was going to get the rubber tray to put ontop of the new floor.

When I go bush I usually fold the rear seats down and put a mattress in the Exy, before the mattress goes in, the kids like to get in there and run a muck and I end up joining them as well.
I have never once felt that the floor sagged in any way with the 3 of us jumping in the back.
I don;t think you will have aproblem with the dog mate.

If you do replace it with some MDF (medium density fibre board) or particle board, then you have to use a thick board say 16 or 18 mm thick. That would mean a good 20-25kgs extra weight that your carrying around. Any thinner and it will be worse than the standard floor.

Do as Jalal says, buy the rubber mat and be done with it.

thanks Tony & Jalal.
I jumped on ebay and found this guy selling a genuine Nissan xtrail mat (2nd hand - in very good condition) for the back and cost me $22.50. Not sure how much Nissan sell these for, although im very confident its over the $100 mark.
