We got one from Camping World and it seems to be working well for us. It's made up of vinyl straws, and we tore a few strands over sharp rocks. But, it's easy to clean and put away. It came with a velcro strap handle.

I second the woven plastic straw type.


We used outdoor astroturf carpeting for years and it was always a mess after the third or so trip.


The woven plastic straw type is easy to clean, dries quickly, doesn't hold sand (large stone won't pass through ) or pine needles. I have a couple of them and we use them all the time.


I think there pretty much all the same. We have one from CW and one from Wal-Mart (that we bought when we realized the CW one had been left at home). The CW model folds a little bit nicer than the one from WM, but paid about 30$ more for it.


If either were destroyed, lost, stolen or otherwise. I would immediately go replace them with similar.

We have the woven plastic straw one as well. Bought ours at Costco, they seem to have stock in spring only, so may already be gone, but saw some there last week at our store. Limited choice of color, but a lot cheaper than buying at CW.


Ours works great. I just sweep ours, roll it, and bungee it to the TT bumper for travel. Hose it off every fall after the season before storing away. Still looks fine after 3 years of duty.

Big fan of the woven plastic straw type. I have also used the astro-turf type in the past and after a few trips out with some weather they kind of fell apart. I bought mine from Camping World. I think it is a 16'. Would love to upgrade to a 20' one.

I, too, use a pair of the CW "plastic straw" type. I also use a small (4'x6') door mat at the base of stairs, on top of the mat, so that folks can wipe their feet before going in the trailer. Picked it up very cheap at one of those "bargain basement closeout" stores, figuring that it if I got 3 or 4 seasons out of it, I was good.... It's on it's third trailer! (12 or 13 years!)

Thank you for your responses, probably get one from Walmart it's about $73.00 unless anyone has seen one for less.

We opted for the 20' foot mat only so we didn't have to anchor down two shorter mats with our new longer tt (matter of preference).

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

I have a 21 ft awning. I bought two 12 foot patio mats as I won't always need the full size and being a bit smaller they are easier to handle.

I bought them off Amazon for around $30 each
