Tread for steps

Any one know where I can buy the classic rubber tread flooring for the steps into the bus? The original in my shortie was blaock with about 2 inches of white right at the edge of the steps? I am a bit of a purist and would love to get something much like the original.

Thanks.

Check at a Bluebird dealer, they can probably still get replacement step mats for your bus. I am replacing mine with rubber checkerplate mat, but I don't think my original ones are in good enough shape to be worth saving. They have some cracks at the edges and who knows what underneath...

Might be a little cheaper than a dealer. I believe the first two on that page are what you need, but I'd suggest calling them before ordering to make sure.

Re: Tread for steps

Holy crap, those are expensive! I am going to try to save mine when I remove them in case anyone needs them. No guarantees though, I will take a closer look tomorrow.
