Does anyone know if the fitted rubber mats sold for standard boxer van cabs will fit a Nuevo cab?    I'm wondering if Autosleepers use different bases for the front seats and therefore off the shelf rubber mats wouldn't fit.

Also has anyone any recommendations for waterproof seat covers?

Many use large bath towels as easy to wash and cheap to replace. Its easy to keep a spare pair in the van in case the first gets really damp.

That's what I've been doing but it's not always been successful.    I'm frequently straight out of the water in a wetsuit and into the van to move it to another location and the towels get too wet and then the seats themselves get wet.    After 2 or 3 days the number of towels gets a bit overwhelming !    

So what I'm thinking to try is use a waterproof seat cover with or preferably, without, towels on top.

I bought a set of two for my cab seats off eBay a couple of years ago , plenty on there.

I noticed my brother in law who works on a farm has a waterproof cover on his car drivers seat, probably the same as on the farms Land Rovers, maybe worth a look at the Land Rover Range Rover dealerships?

We had some similar to this which were very strong and durable, and might be perfect for you.

They were rather sweaty in hot weather, but I guess that would not be a problem for your intended use.

I always ask my mechanic for a few disposable covers when I get the car serviced. I use them when the van is parked outside the house to keep the sun from damaging the seat fabric.
Good idea for the use mentioned above so you don't have to sit on covers all the time.

If it's good enough for wet dogs it's good enough for me - although my wetsuit smells pretty foul...

I eventually bought these from the Roof Box company:  UKC COVERS, XL FRONT PAIR.   A lady there new exactly what I was after and what size I needed - unfortunately they were waiting new stock so I had to wait.    They fitted a treat and very waterproof.    Exact reference number is UKFXLAR02.    They also fit our Volvo v70 front seats.   I have no connection with the supplier except as a customer:up!:.

Regarding the rubber mat for the cab, I bought a one-piece standard Boxer one for my 04 Nuevo expecting to have to do a bit of trimming, but it fits perfectly.
