It looks like the Honda cargo tray is a black unsightly rubber mat not available in gray. In checking the web sites of aftermarket providers none have Pilot accessories out yet.

Has anyone ever ordered from Urban Jungle SUV or have a recommendation for a similar aftermarket seller of cargo trays? Urban Jungle SUV sells Weathertech and Cargo Logic cargo trays that are more eye pleasing and I'm guessing more durable and in calling them said they would have Pilot accessories in a month or two.

Does anyone have experience with the Cargo Logic system that uses some type of velcro "pillars" to hold items placed on the "velcro" cargo tray in place. How easy is clean up on this type of system?

Cheese, I saw the Honda cargo tray at a local dealer lot and it wasn't the ugliest thing I've ever seen - I just didn't want to pay their price for it. In fact, with my red-clay-dirt attracting, baseplaying son already bringing his contribution to the rear space of the interior, I went ahead and ordered the cargo tray (plus side steps and rear mud flaps) from Tim at hondacuraworld yesterday.

Can tray roll up easily?

I'm sure there are now quite a few of you with cargo trays. Mine is on order from Tim, but I thought I'd check and make sure it's what I really want/need.

I want protection for the cargo area, but I also use the third row seating fairly often (two or three times a week. Is the plastic stiff and unwieldy? Will it be a hassle to roll and store?

Basically, would you recommend it?

Re: Can tray roll up easily?

Yes, I would. I just got mine from Tim and it came rolled up quite tight (it's quite flexible). IMO, it would easily fit in the space even with the 3rd row up.

How much is hondacuraworld charging for the cargo mat as it doesn't appear on their website, also I'm curious about other accessories, particularly the rack parts.

One more thing, what do people think about the differences between the cargo tray and the cargo liner, why is the liner so much more expensive?

Liner description: The liner protects the floor, the sides of the cargo area, and the backs of the second row seats. The 2nd row 60/40 split feature can still be utilized when the liner is installed.

Tray description: The tray protects the carpet in the cargo area.

In addition to the above, I have the tray and based on the web pics that I've seen of the liner (i.e., http://www.collegehillshonda.com/2002.htm), it looks like there is much more to the liner (but more than I, personally, wanted).

Roll that cargo tray

The cargo tray is soft enough to roll up when the 3rd seat is up. Because it is shaped to fit tightly around the wheel wells etc, you may have to bend it in the middle to get it to roll. Once rolled, the front can act as a cargo cover for small items. And the lip keeps it from falling out when the hatch is opened.

Thought I'd report my thoughts about my cargo tray, which arrived last week (only a few days after order with Tim on hondacuraworld.com).

I like it! I debated getting it -- even considered the liner briefly -- but in the end, am happy with what I got. It provides the necessary protection for the carpeted cargo area, yet can be rolled up (not tremendously easily, but it can be done without a giant production) so I can use the third-row seats when needed.

I also think it looks pretty nice in a Silver EX-L. I like the way the design pattern matches the outside trim and carries through the design details of the Pilot. The color is fine in the Silver Leather, because there are already touches of very dark gray/black in the trim.

And it was a lifesaver last night, when my boys decided to find a mudhole at a party! While we adults partied, the boys muddied, and my 7-year-old was barely recognizable under the mud!

Without the tray, I would have freaked out, but with it -- off went all the clothes, shoes and socks and into the cargo tray. I scooped up two towels (whch I keep folded in the hidden cargo area...partially to pad those headrests and partly for such emergencies).

A few wipes of the leather seats this morning, and we're good as new!

Truly a Family Adventure Vehicle!

I got the cargo tray when I got the Pilot. Really haven't had a need for it yet, but just wanted protection for the carpet in the cargo area.
My son has a CR-V and he got his cargo tray from Weathertech. They didn't have one listed for the Pilot but give them a call and will probably have soon.

aftermarket trays

Watch out for those, they may not have the cut-outs for the six tiedowns.

The factory one is molded around the tie-downs and IMHO looks great.

Yes, it's black, but really keeps the dirt in. We went to the beach last weekend and was amazed at how much sand WOULD have gotten in the rear without it.

A lifesaver.

Cargo tray rolled up pics

I was just searching through all the "cargo tray" threads trying to figure out if the cargo tray would roll up ok when you wanted to use the third row seats.

In another thread about cargo liners someone pointed out the acuramdx.org site and said they had pics of a rolled up cargo tray with the third row seats up.

It took a little digging but I finally found the pics and thought I'd post the direct link (it's the 7th pic on the page):

Absolutely. I'm of the opinion that it should be standard equipment in all Pilots.
