Most all the ones I've seen, and have one of, run about 60 to 70 bucks. A lot of the RV places have them, or Camping World stocks a large variety of them.

They are great for keeping dirt, sand and those little pebbles on the outside.

Camping World and some Wal-Mart stores. Around $50. I have one of the new plastic ones that has a design woven in. Much sturdier than it looks, dries very quickly and sweeps and cleans like a dream.

I found this one today at sportsmansguide.com

Camco Reversible Awning Leisure Mat, 6x9' - 503401, Outdoor Furnishings at Sportsman's Guide

keep in mind the price in RED is for members ($29.99 a yr) The blue price is for the rest of us. Still a great deal. They actually have quite a good selection of RV stuff which surprised me.

I bought a mat 5 years ago when I bought our first motor home, used the darn thing 1 time. It stays rolled up in one of the bays cause I think it's more trouble than it's worth....

Make one..
Get inexpensive "astro turf" at Lowes/Home Depot (6' or 12' wide).
Fold under 2" on all sides and glue with rubber glue. Get cheap grommit kit at Harbor Freight/Wally World for tie downs. I use 8" gutter nails.....

We have 2 of the Wal-Mart ones and think they are great. They are $50 I think and they fold-up rather with a carrying strap than roll up so a lot easier to store if you don't have pass-thru storage.

We bought ours from Camping World >5 years ago and it's still going strong.

People seem to love them or hate them but we use ours a lot. With 3 dogs it really helps keep the amount of stuff tracked inside the coach to a minimum.

I think ours was about $70.

Astro turf mats, and others that don't let water through, are banned as "grass killers" in many parks.....

Have one of these as well. It is easier for one person to shake and fold to put away. I got the one that is taupe colored on one side and white on the other.

When we dry camp at a campground, I put the white side of the rug facing up with white privacy curtains (actually shower curtains) along the sides of the awning.

Along with the mostly white fiberglass of the TT, all that white illuminates and reflects well, so I only need the porch light at night. We are usually the brightest campsite around until lights out, and generally just from the porch light reflecting all that white.

We bought an out door rug from costco for $19. Not as big as the ones at CW but we really like it and its big enough for us.

be patient and camping world has a sale regularly...
we only use ours when in a park WITHOUT a patio as our steps have the 'astroturf" type covering on all 4 steps that seems to catch most of the "stuff'

http://www.campingworld.com/shopping...step-rugs/8070

or do like I did and find in online cheap and go dicker with the mgr to get a discount...
all they can say is "No soup for you" or ok

Finding a cheap one, Less you go with a carpet remmenant is not likely.

DO NOT PUT THEM ON GRASS please, they damage the grass.
