I use the same thing outside our travel trailer - got it in 2012 thinking it would last a year, and it is going strong. I even set it on fire when cooking too close to the rug - I can attest that they are flammable. Luckily, I always have water and sand handy for the campfire. It burned a hole the size of my hand. I turn that section under so now it is about 8" wide.

I did buy the foldup Camco mats for $11 that are meant for using on the beach, too. It has handles when it is folded up. I use two when I tent camp with one outside the tent and one inside to protect the bathtub tarp type material.

If it is really muddy, I just make a walkway of Lynx Levelers and put one of the small Camco mats under the travel trailer steps.

The new, I believe polypropylene, mats are said to not kill the grass. We have one and while the grass is flattened when we leave it is still alive. We have an 18x8 which is the size of our awning. Like $70 on sale. It is light, less than 5 pounds, and with a little practice can be deployed and folded by one person, although two is always better.

We picked up a green outdoor remnant at a carpet store. It looks like plastic grass. It is cheap, does the job and gets thrown over the clothes line at home and hosed down.

It is great in the desert but will kill grass dead.
