Rubber Mat for Cargo Area of TH? Suggestions??

Hey guys, complete newbie here, I tied to search other threads before I posted this to make sure the questions hasn't already been addressed but I couldn't find exactly what I was looking for.

I just bought a 2004 Thor Wanderer Vortex 33ft Toy Hauler last week, it came with this flooring that looks like faux wood but its some type of linoleum (guessing). My problem is that when I haul my RZR I am afraid it is going to track in a lot of mud and I want to keep the interior as clean and easy to clean as possible. I have heard about others using horse stall mats for flooring in their toy haulers so they can take them out when the RZR isn't in there and hose them off etc. This linoleum looks like it was put down in sections (not one big piece) so I am afraid of water etc getting in the cracks and messing stuff up , that's why I was looking into the rubber mat.

I am curious if anyone has any suggestions on where I can find a mat big enough or if anyone has any other suggestions on something I can take in and out to clean (I have debated using a 8x10 indoor/outdoor rug as well). I have been searching for a rubber mat big enough but so far no luck. I even looked into cargo mats for the bed of a truck but that wasn't big enough either. It would be nice if I could get a rubber mat that had a lip on it to further keep the mud contained until I can clean it.

Thanks for any help, I will try to post a pic of my current flooring that I want to try to protect. Click image for larger version

Not sure of the brand or if they still sell it, but we got a rubber garage floor lining mat at Sams club that we used in our old enclosed trailer. It was a big rubber mat we cut to fit.

I just did a search for rubber garage floor mats, it came up with several. FYI. Uline was one of the companies listed.

The horse stall mats are very, very heavy. I use two as a target backstop for my compound bow. I wouldn't even consider using them if you plan on pulling them in and out.

I would look for something like this instead.

How about artificial turf? When you pull it out you have a grassy patch at your campsite and you can hose it down to clean it up if needed.

Recommend you call one of the local billboard companies and see if they'll donate an old billboard. The material is a very heavy vinyl - can be cut to any shape / size and we insert pool noodles in a rolled over edge on the ends and sides to make a water dam ... hose it off and fold it up when done ...

i used a few gallons of truck bed liner paint/goop which has the rough sand like texture all the way up to the last tie down and also 6' along the wall area.... if you apply it well enough and take your time you will get a perfect seal and can use a hose if needed to wash out the rear area with no damage to the inside... it works but its permanent!!!

X2 on bedliner paint. Looked at a trailer and their selling point was mats were slippery when wet.
