Re: Canvasback saga

Here are some pics of my black Canvasback liner in my WK2. Note that in some of the pics the liner looks gray due to the camera flash. The black liner is perfect for the WK2's black interior. I purchased the add-on side liners for $20 more.

First pic is my Mopar rubber cargo liner on top of the Canvasback liner.


Here is the Canvasback liner by itself.


Shot of the subwoofer liner.


Shot of the other side liner. This covers up the little pocket but since it's attached with velcro you can easily get to it.



Shot of the seam for the 60/40 rear seat liner.


And finally here's a pic of the logo and to show that you are able to access all the hooks and handles necessary that the liner covers.


The Canvasback liner isn't cheap but I think it adds a little bit of protection for the areas a cargo liner doesn't cover. And since my 2 boxers ride in the back the liners make it a lot easier to keep the factory carpet hair free and clean.

Re: Canvasback saga

Nice pix!

In NJ, PA and some other states, BYO restaurants are commonplace. But what to do with leftover wine?

If the bottle's been opened, you're supposed to store it where it can't be reached from inside the vehicle -- an impossibility with an SUV. So either you leave it behind, chug it all down, or shove the cork back in and take your chances driving back home.

The Canvasback port side cover, however, allows a bottle of wine/whatever to be discreetly stored in the cavity, away from prying eyes and bored cops with flashlights.

Just got mine in and it's nice. My 13 year old German Shepherd loved the two treats that were included and the thing looks nice. Planning a trip next weekend and taking the dog so will get some good experience with it. I also it with the side pieces and it's nice to have all that protected as well.

Great product so far.

Tat2boy, thanks for great thread/review. I received mine last week and love it. My set up is just like yours with my slush mat over the canvasback...and, my English Springer Spaniel, Clover, appreciated the two biscuits It came with as well!

Re: Canvasback saga

Almost 5 years later, canvasback has your old liner for sale.

Re: Canvasback saga

I know this is an old thread brought back to life by BigJosh, but I just wanted to comment on Canvasback's supreme customer service.

I ordered my liner back in September when I traded my 2012 WK2 for a 2015 WK2. In an attempt to keep the back carpet dog hair free (white pit and german shepherd puppy), I ordered the graphite canvasback. In tandem, I also ordered the travall pet barrier. Both arrived, but I only installed the pet barrier at first. It ties down to the d-rings to keep it secure and from rattling, a great design and I've been very pleased with it.

Fast forward about a month and I finally get around to installing the canvasback (much easier than expected by the way), just to find out that the liner I had ordered, since I had not requested it, did not include cut outs for the d-rings. I was bummed, thinking since I had waited so long to install it that I was kind of screwed. I went ahead and emailed canvasback anyway to see if there is anything they can do, and their customer service pleasantly surprised me.

After exchanging a few emails with Pete (the COO) and explaining the situation, we were able to work out an agreement for them to send me a new one. They just so happened to have one already made, ready to ship out. So rather than having to build me a new one and have to wait a few weeks (they build them all to order), they cut out the d-ring holes, and sent me the new one. The only thing I had to do, since I never used the initial one, was send them over the tracking number after shipping my initial order back to them. Something like that would never work as seamlessly and effortlessly with another company, and I am extremely grateful. I recommend canvasback whenever I get the chance!

We'd had an iron-tough Rear Gear treated canvas liner since 1994 for our prior Grand Cherokee, and it remains in near-new condition to this day. But, alas, Rear Gear folded a few years back, so we ordered a more basic black canvas liner from Canvasback at Canvasback Custom Cargo Liners

It looks good and fits well, but after several weeks developed a three-inch separation/tear in the middle, and along the grain, that was as clean as a laser cut. Never mind that we'd hardly used it and treated it like a Persian carpet, it separated in what looks more like a defect than from wear or use.

I emailed Canvasback, expressing our disappointment and comparing their product unfavorably to Rear Gear. Result: six days later a replacement appeared at the front door. They also provided a UPS label to return the old one at their expense.

They say tears are most unusual, and given the extremely neat nature of the separation it looks more like a manufacturing defect than failure from wear. Whatever, it has a lifetime warranty and, obviously, superior customer service, so we're pleased.
I worked with canvas for 6+ years as a teenager and into my 20s for my dad's small company in Central Wisconsin.

Minor flaws in material are not uncommon and sometimes can be missed during manufacture of a product.

My dad gave me one of the industrial sewing machines when he retired and sold the business...
Contemplating sewing something like this together for myself.
There's a canvas supplier right here in the Twin Cities where I can buy the raw material.
