Thanks all for your thoughts and suggestions. I have tried a few more concoctions without even a hint of success so I'm not hopeful, especially after reading about plasticiser migration !
Looks like it might have to be a new floor or a large carpet. Look out for my next post where I ask for advice on how to break the bad news

It's a camper trailer. Carry on camping. It'll scuff out eventually.
(I'll let you tell 'er that though.)

I'd be looking for some smaller tires and make some artistic and clever crop circle-like patterns in it. If you can't fix it - feature it!
(or get new rug)

Don't forget to use vinegar as well. It worked for Jack when he and Jill fell down the hill!

Replacing the floor covering in a camper van is by no means easy. The flooring is usually laid before the installation of the furniture so everything must be removed including the kitchen sink!
A possible alternative is to use floor paint. This is a useful guide: **LINK**

We have loose laid rubber backed washable carpet in our van and it works really well, even when we have the dogs with us. It can be taken out and scrubbed if necessary and is kind under foot. I turned yew plugs to fit the table leg sockets so that they finish level with the 'depressed' pile of the carpet.
The carpet is what is used for commercial venues and old folks homes where unfortunate accidents happen with regularity.
The sheet vinyl flooring remains below to help prevent spillages getting into the floor timbers.

Try a paste of sodium bicarb and water, leave it on overnight, but like the others, I don't hold out much hope.

If it is rust, then another vote for Oxalic Acid. I used to work in a foundry, and the iron dust in the air left millions of tiny rust specs in the cars paintwork. Oxalic Acid worked a treat. Bought as crystals and made into a solution. Paint it on and let it crystalize, then wash off with water.
