Well worth the money - May 30, 2005

Reviewer: Nick & Marianne Plastina from Santa Cruz, CA

Review: We do a lot of off-road and desert camping, often meeting up with other folks. It never fails that someone remarks about the great mat we have outside our rig. We always recommend it. Sand and dirt filter through the mat and it doesn't collect it -- like woven mats or indoor/outdoor carpet -- which makes storing it so much easier. Once we are home, a simple hose rinse makes it like new again.
I was trying to find the same outdoor mat that Nick and Marianne had in front of their trailer at Dove Springs...well whaddaya know?!

Hee Hee...boy, they sure do get around, don't they?!

Phatty...I think since King & Sandy have one of those, you could actually give us a link to the webpage so we can order one also! If they have one WE'VE got to get one also!

Thanks Phatty!

A little steep @ $89 for arti-grass, but I'm assuming it's the woven design that makes it lightweight and cleanable- I've learned you don't try to hose off carpet or artigrass unless you've got a firehose!

Sean,

I have two of them, not the exact ones Sandy has, but the Presto version. They do clean up fairly well, and so far seem durable.

Sean, you can get it for less when it's on sale, I think around $75, and even cheaper if you are a "club" member at Camping World. I think it pays for itself over the long run compared to the crappy plastic woven ones.

When I saw that post it was on sale for like $56 or something, I slacked on buying it, now it's back up to regular rip-off rate.

if you noticed,
there is a small woven mat right outside the door of MoodyBlue.
They SHOULD be writing reviews for the darn things, they have a long proven track record of experience with these mats over the years.

You guys have the funnest thread on the forum! Any way I'll throw a couple of pennies in the pot. If you're looking for a mat for your rig, shade cloth available at any garden center is the best. Buy it by the foot; here it's $1.99. It's 6' wide so a 6X10 is 20 bucks. It' even available in colors. I put grommets on the corners of ours and secure it with large nails. It's porus and does'nt absorb water so when breaking camp all you do is give it a good shake. Try it. You'll like it!

Hoverbug!

We aim to please! Hey...that screen cloth- is it pretty heavy-duty? And is the mesh closed up enough so you don't track the ground under it into your TH? I like the idea!

How about that everybody, we're famous! I knew if we kept up the hard work and all those late night efforts, it'd be recognized someday. Didn't quite figure it'd be this way but....we'll take it. Thanks Hoverbug!

Oh, and good info on the material.
