recommend Cargo Liner for when rear seats are down

I recently purchased a 2019 Honda Fit. I put the rear seats down before I left the dealer, and they have not been put up since. I like taking my dog hiking, but he gets into the back with muddy paws.
I am seeking your opinion on a removable, washable cargo liner that can cover from behind the front seats to the hatchback. If the liner can go up the back of the front seats, that would be amazing.

Also if anyone has suggested accessories for dog owners (70 Lbs Golden Retreiver) I am all ears.
I plan on taking a 5,000 mile road trip in the fit this summer with my wife and two dogs (we are getting a new puppy in a couple weeks)

Thanks and regards

Why not just put a tarp (canvas, not plastic) down and then you can spread it out to cover the entire area that you want to protect. The fabric should be heavy enough to hold it in place, especially if you tuck it down into any available crevices and corners. Easy to take out and shake off. Not sure what the washability/durability of canvas is though.

Well hats off to a 5000 mile road trip with yourself, your wife, a 70lb Golden Retriever and a puppy in a Honda Fit.

I actually bought a canvas drop cloth/tarp at a home depot like store. And it's what I use when folding down the seats and hauling something, and it's worked fine.

But given a Golden Retriever and a Puppy?
Not sure that's what you want.
I use the canvas drop cloth, mostly when just hauling inanimate objects...or the opposite of "puppies",

Don't know how much Do It Yourself you might be interested in approaching. What I might do, is just take a stroll through your local "Home Depot" like store. Check out drop cloths, tarps, and even carpet materials...see if you find something you think might work.

I have a moving blanket from (Horrible Tool and Freight aka Harbor Tool and Freight) that covers most of the back area,


I also have under the blanket the Rear Seat Protectors from Honda


you might try attaching some velcro hook material to the movers blanket to grip to the interior and keep the blanket in place much like the Rear Seat Protectors do or the old 2015-17 Fit had https://www.ebay.com/itm/Genuine-OEM...-/171421906699
f you can find one.

I would go with a canvas tarp or a mover's blanket. That reminds me I need to put my mover's blanket back in my car!

Where did you find a 2019 Fit? I havenít seen one show up locally since last spring.
