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.
