A high quality upfit generally means replacing the stock flooring, which is 5/8" thick and lacks thermal or sound insulation.

A replacement high quality flooring consists of:

  • Cork subfloor for thermal and noise insulation against the metal floor. Cork is mold and rot resistant.
  • Marine grade plywood 3/4" base over the cork subfloor.
  • Finished floor over the plywood.

Options for the finished floor over the plywood layer include products like Lonseal:

Examples of LONWOOD 'Dakota' topseal flooring

Examples of LONWOOD 'Loncoin II Flecks' flooring

Two examples of LONWOOD 'Lonzebra Topseal' flooring

What I chose

I ultimately chose the Lonseal Loncoin II Flecks, Color 150, Onyx, shown below in sunlight.

Vinyl flooring gets hot in sunlight (e.g., van door left open and sun intrudes)—this is a significant negative.

Floor mats

The stock Mercedes floor mats do a good job of covering the driver and passenger area including the middle floor area. There are probably better options out there trap loose dirt and stones better (which I regularly track into the van), but these mats are a big improvement over letting the carpet be dirtied and not particularly expensive.
