Want to bring your furry pal with you on a trip, but don’t want to muck up your vehicle? Canvasback has your back (seat) with high-quality, custom-designed cargo liners with a tailored fit for almost any vehicle.

Traveling with your pet in tow can be challenging, but with the right gear at your disposal, sharing a vehicle with your four-legged best friend doesn’t have to be stressful or messy. On your must-have list for driving with a pet should include accessories that ensure your pet’s safety, such as a seat belt leash or a seat barrier, tidbits to ensure their comfort such as travel beds or booster seats, and of course – the right equipment to keep your vehicle protected from your dog’s muddy paws, curious claws, and mountains of pet hair they often tend to leave behind. Enter – Canvasback! This woman-owned, Minnesota-based company creates waterproof, easy-to-clean cargo liners that are made for specific makes and models of vehicles (SUVs, trucks, Wagons and even some sedans) to ensure a perfect fit and provide complete coverage of your vehicle’s cargo area, all handmade made in the USA!

Canvasback has been producing quality custom cargo liners for over 20 years and they have a cool origin story! Check it out below.

So how is Canvasback different from the 100’s of other solutions out there on the market today? Their waterproof liners contour the entire cargo area which includes the back of the second-row seats and third seats (if applicable). No more removing those big heavy plastic liners to use your third row! And when you lay your seats flat for maximum cargo room, they have you completely covered! All seats can work independently and depending on the vehicle configuration, the custom cargo liners can come as either a one piece or have several pieces for more accessibility. Access points, such as d-rings, child restraints, storage latches, etc. can be ordered to suit your specific needs. They use a Velcro-like Hook/Loop fastening system where Hook tabs are sewn under the liner to grab the carpet in your car, keeping the liner securely in place. This is super easy to install, check out this install video!

These liners are custom designed to the exact specification of your car’s make and model, providing an OEM feel and fit. They are available in 11 different fabrics, in various solid colors or fun patterns, with options for custom stitching or monograms so you can make them your own to the very last stitch. In addition to the cargo liners, Canvasback also produces accessories for the protection of the vehicle interiors, such as bumper flaps, seat covers, cargo side pieces, seat barriers, and more. You can even add on some fun accessories for your best friend, like a matching travel dog bowl or foam dog bed so your pup can ride in comfort and style! You don’t have to compromise on having outdoor adventures with your pet and a clean, tidy car – you can have both when you pick out the right protection. And thanks to Canvasback, you don’t have to settle for generic options which never seem to completely cover your whole cargo area properly (and we all know how those pet hairs magically find their way through cracks).
