I haven’t seen a lot of posts in the 200 tech forum referencing Canvasback’s Cargo Liners - so here is my take on their 200-specific products and some photos of the whole kit installed in my 2021 200 US-spec.

EDIT: to add in a link to Canvasback’s webpage:


Our LC is a family car and daily driver, so I my intent is to improve upon the interior’s durability and to preserve its finish. The cargo area sees a lot of use, so Canvasback’s full liner kit for the 200 was a natural choice - the Canvasbacks will be installed in addition to a full set of Escape Gear seat covers; my order is currently being fulfilled via Equipt and should ship from South Africa within the month. I’m doing my best to bubble wrap this LC! 🤣

I purchased the rear floor liner, second row seat back cover, third row covers (when stowed), third row head rest covers, and a tailgate cover. After some discussion with the rep from Canvasback, he agreed to work in some large pockets on the third row covers ($40 $50 surcharge). I also asked them to provide openings in the floor liner to ensure the rear tie down d-rings were still accessible.

Install took about 30 mins. Note that I cleaned the tailgate twice with alcohol prep pads before installing the adhesive Velcro tape (for the tailgate cover) - both the car seat removal/reinstall and Velcro tape install took the bulk of the install time.

Here are the photos:

Thanks for sharing, Steve - look great. I had a set of the Canvasbacks on my old 4th gen V8 4Runner and they were quality.

You bet - no problem. Canvasback is a cool little “mom & pop” operation; well worth the six week lead time and it’s great they’ll customize their products within reason.

I’m still surprised they make these liners for such a low-volume production vehicle like the 200-series. IIRC, years ago a member on Mud let Canvasback measure his LC’s cargo area for a full set of liners and the rest is history.

I've got an order in with Canvasback for the tail gate cover and 2nd row seat cover. I can't order the cargo cover yet, because they don't have a 2 row template yet, and it's a long drive to Minnesota.

I'd love to see an assembly that protected the plastics when there are no third row seats present. In my '98, the entire cargo area is protected all the way up to the windows by a heavy canvas liner and it's designed for no third row.....saved my plastics and carpet from 20+ years of abuse, but unfortunately, the company that made them is no longer. Maybe Canvasback can fill the void.

I would venture to guess Canvasback would do it if you made an appointment and could commit to leaving your vehicle at their shop for a day or two for measurements, etc.

I’ve considered doing something similar when I eventually install a set of ARB drawers in the rear of our 200.

@MTN2SND I want to pass this good news directly from Canvasback.

Today I received an email from Cameron at Canvasback and he thanked me for creating this thread - apparently a client emailed them the link to clarify some details before ordering a set of liners for their 200.

Cameron saw your post and mentioned to me that the HE / third-row-delete rear liner is in the works and should be listed on their website within two weeks. A 200 owner has already left their HE LC at the shop for measurements and an initial production unit has been manufactured. For email alerts when it’s live on their website, send an email to: info@canvasback.com

He sent me some photos of the pre-production unit, which I told him I would share with the Mud community:

@yona thanks for this thread. I ordered the exact setup you did for my white 2020 with 3rd row. Great that you took the time to swap the rear weather cargo map from under to ontop of the cargo liner and get pics. Do you think the tailgate piece is redundant with the part of the cargo liner that covers the tailgate? It looks like a good option to have when not running the full cargo liner. My total was $519 with only 2 headrest covers for 3rd row seats. That is less expensive than a Gunner dog kennel that really would not fit with one of the 3rd row seats in use. Same for having both folded and a fridge with the kennel. This setup is the bomb for our Golden Retriever.

No problem at all. Yeah, moving the cargo liner on top of the Canvasback liner just made sense. The rubber OEM mat is there to absorb any abrasions from strollers or gear being loaded/unloaded and the Canvasback liner fills in any gaps missed. The Canvasback material also catches any loose sand or dirt and keeps that debris from imbedding into the carpet - the canvas material is so much easier to vacuum and clean.

Not sure what you mean by the part of the cargo liner that protects the tailgate. My OEM rubber liner doesn’t cover the tailgate (see the photos). I don’t think any component of the Canvasback liner kit is redundant; I would recommend buying the full suite - especially if you plan on keeping you dog in the rear of the vehicle.

My confusion between the first and second sets of pics. Different colors made me think there were 2 layers on the tailgate itself.

I appreciate y’all doing a lot of the front in work. I’ve always admired canvas backs design. The design for the 2016 4Runner is slick.

Since I don’t intend to sell my 2020 cruiser (Silver/black) I’m on somewhat of a mission to “bubble wrap” it within reason. My 2001 thundercloud/grey still looks incredible. Unfortunately that light and dark grey color combo is long gone and the black plastic in these scratches if you look at it wrong.

I’d be very interested in a solution that protected the plastic on the sides and wheel wells. Also somewhat mitigates the issue us non HE owners have with removing the seats(have yet to do it).

It sounds like canvas back is up for anything if they have the car to take measurements. Not in the cards for me to drive up from Atlanta.

Anyway. If anyone else is looking for the same I’d love some insight. I’m going to reach out to canvas back myself but sounds like some have already had the conversation.

Always appreciate the help,
Noah

I too would like the plastics covered from the floor, over the wheel wells, and up the bottom of the windows, although I'm removing my third row seats just like my 1998....took them out 22 years ago and they're still sealed in plastic.
