Yes, our mat is the first thing to go out. If we have a site where it looks like there will be mud sitting, I'll put down a clear sheet of plastic I get from work underneath first and put the mat on top. I'll just throw the clear plastic out after our stay. We have a storage bag that we put the mat in after we roll it back up. We have a 9' by 12' that is sectioned off with 2 folds. So it can be used as a 6' by 12' or the whole thing. We have had it for 8 years now and about 400 nights. If it does get dirty looking, at home I'll spray on a little cleaner and use a large push broom and give it a quick cleaning. Takes about 5 minutes and about 2 hours in the sun to dry.

Yes, clogs are ugly but where we were it didn't matter to us.

Maybe its different camping experiences. I usually boondock on dirt / rock / sand. Even when we camped at a CG over the weekend our feet were dirty even though we were camped on cement because the fire pit, bbq & picnic table were all in the dirt.

Got one from Camping World also and like the rest use it if we are camped longer than one night and if the CG allows. The last CG we were at didn't because of their grass. Really like the way they look and they are also functional (keeping out grass and dirt). When just going out to sit under the awning, I also don't always like to put on shoes (maybe a little redneck) and it is easier on the feet.

As the "Boss" desired one, she got one. I don't argue

LOVE the pictures! We'll also take a picture of ours when we get it set up. We're going camping this weekend, but since it's such a short trip and isn't expected to rain, we probably won't use the rug. We'll definitely use it in August when we'll be staying in a CG for a couple of weeks.

After reading the comments here, I also picked up the brown version from Walmart. I got it mostly for the dog to have something to lie down on that is not gravel or asphalt when she is outside and for a clean place for grandbabies to play.

Got one of those synthetic ones from CW. It lets water go thru and feels good underneath our feet and keeps a lot of the dirt out of the coach. We like it and use it every time we camp.

We have 2 9x12s. They are a godsend when it rains.
We have yet to use one this year.
I am praying for rain.
My next camping trip may be to someplace where it is raining.
Does anyone know such a place?
