We bought two of those from Camping World and they were not $70 but less than that. We have been using ours for 3 to 4 years and they work very well.

Just looked online at Camping World and the prices have gone up since I bought ours!

We have 2- 9'x12' mats from Walmart. Have held up pretty well the 3 seasons we have had them. Only issue is they don't match our 32 we bought last July!!! Lol Oh well, we may get a new set that does. Do wish we had a storage bag to help keep the pass through cleaner as some dirt does stick if a little damp or wet. But as mentioned dry stuff falls right off these newer style mats.

We probably will go with 2 again due to being a little easier to handle. And at times we may only put one may out due to the site: more grass at the site, obstacles, etc.

Check the pics below. It's a 20' but we folded it down to fit the smaller space available due to a permanent bbq taking up the area.

Our next cg we will be able to fold out the whole 20'

[purchased on sale at Camping World.... chose the color we did because it matched our new tt. check this ad

Our previous mat was purchased at a Walmart in 2010. That mat must've had at least 8 months of wear and tear over the six years we owned the 2010 Jay Flight. Even over rocks and pebbles, it held up well.

Love how these mats have the creases to make folding up a breeze. We usually keep it in the bed of truck against the cab for the trip home or to the next c/g, but a storage bag would otherwise be nice

We did 'outdoor carpet' as well with our first camping experience many years back; ugh. Learned fast that it didn't fold back up easily like the current outdoor mats, and didn't wick moisture away when it rained.

Glad we had a forum like this to learn about the all-weather reversible mats that are easy-peezy for maintenance, fold down to compact sized, that can be purchased locally as well as online

I gotta agree with Denise on this one...We have 2 of the foldable mats from Walmart. The older one is 3 years old and still going strong. Very easy to fold up and put away.

We tried every type outdoor mat out there, and hated all of them short of building a temporary deck which obvoiusly for us who venture out routinely is not an option. We stumbled across the woven straw 8x 20 checkered flag mat at a nascar race. We actually bought ours off amazon, made by Meng, Chinese but so far it works. It gets full of mud, grass, beer, red wine and everything else spilled on it but I t gets pressured washed few times a year. Honestly this is our first one, going on it fifth season and still looks good except where some grass stains didn't come out. I don't think there's another option better for weekenders.

If you have a Camping World nearby, they have a patio mat storage bag for $12.99. Works great for a 9X12 mat, very roomy and seems to be well made.
