Thanks everybody. I went with this one http://www.amazon.com/Reversible-159...atio+mats+9x12
Altogether it had great reviews. We got a little better deal on ebay and free shipping. Haven't used it camping yet but threw it out in the yard to check it over. It feels very comfortable under your bare feet, looks and feels like good quality and the bag that comes with it is huge... so no fuss getting it in and out. The bag is a little flimsy so we'll see how long it lasts. I'll post more when we get some use out of it

We have used the reversible type for the last several years and love it. Much to our surprise on our last camp out the squirrels loved it also and had it for dinner. For dessert they used our BBQ hose. Each trip seems to bring a new event.

The patio mat is one of the best things we ever bought. What a difference it makes in keeping the interior of the RV clean. If it is dirty and wet after a camp-out we usually just fold it up and wrap a bungee around the thing and toss it in the bed of our tow vehicle. When we get home we can hose it off, dry it out, fold it and then stow it in the trailer for the next trip.

If mine is muddy etc I hose it down laying over the picnic table or laying out in the gravel roadway... Drys real quick. I have no idea what mine is made of - got it from Camping world in Myrtle Beach while on a trip.

I wish I had a second one...

They're great mats - brush them off before you travel to get the dirt off - when you get home hose 'em off and they dry quick. Well worth the investment!

I bought my 9X18' awning mat from RV Awning Mats many years ago. It is still in great shape.

When it gets dirty , I hose it off and let it dry. If it gets very dirty I open it in my driveway, spray Chlorox Clean-up on it, scrub with a push broom, rinse and let dry.

My first mat was the astro turf stuff from a harware store. It was heavy, was hard to clean and smelled bad after a couple of seasons. I'll never use that stuff again.

I also carry a Ryobi 18V leaf blower in the camper. It is quiet and quickly blows leaves and dirt off the awning mat.

When i bought my last trailer - the owner gave me a good sized chunk of astro turf as a front mat. Eventually the grommet ripped out so i bought a grommet kit cheap @ Harbor Freight and just put new ones. We have a nice "lawn" in front of the trailer and are happy.

Oh, to the OP - we store in one of the tubs kept in the front storage of the trailer. One one side of the trailer we have 2 of the type designed to fit under the bed (also from the prior trailer). They work great.

We bought two big mats from costco this years. They are the best ones we have had, best price and they fold easily into their original shape because the fold lines are marked with thread
