They are called patio mats and can be purchased at Walmart, Camping World, on line or at your favorite RV dealership. If you can wait until off season they usually come down in price. Ours is 9X15. Good luck and welcome!

Don't get a indoor/outdoor carpet fabric from a carpet store. When wet they stay wet a long time. The regular RV patio mats will be a vinyl-look with little pinholes in it. They dry very fast and last a long, long time.

They're made of a woven plastic material so rain and snow have little effect on them. We have had the same one for 5 yrs. and it still looks good.

Just another thing to haul around with you. If you put it over sand, it will be full of sand, over mud, full of mud over gravel full of gravel etc. If you must have one, at least get one made from the poly woven material like those specifically made for rv's. My bet is after you drag it with you for a while, you'll say "Ralph, is there a dumpster near by". Oh, and that's exactly what I did with mine.

Huh? Not at all. We used them every day of our 16 years of full-timing. They keep the dirt/sand out of the RV and they make a nice, clean pleasant place to sit outside. If you have pets or small children who might sit and play, they stay clean, too. A broom sweeps them easily.

We had a separate small tub to store it. They fold up nicely. If they're still wet or dirty when we're ready to pack up, the tub contains it all.
