I still like the Carefree Dura-mat:

Granted, they are heavier, but they last a long time. I had one that was used for ten years with our first travel trailer. Then, when we bought our second travel trailer, I tried some of the newer lightweight mats and just wasn't that happy with their durability. So after, buying the Bay Star, I ordered another Dura-mat.

We bought a large expensive RV rug back in the day for our first camper. ...what a PITA.

Now days it's the cheapest thing we can find at WalMart, Big Lots, Dollar stores, etc.

Must be no longer than 6' on one side. Easy to roll up and store.

Chunk 'em when they start to get ratty, they usually last about a year.

Here is a patio mat we found recently:

We have had our now since mid-January 2021 and the wife likes it. It is a heavy mat and so far I have not had to stake it down. We are in Goodyear, Az. and some days the winds have been high. It does help cut down the small gravel coming in to the RV.

We have been using a rectangular piece of ole green artificial turf for over 20 years. We don't full time but I imagine it's been out the equivalent of two or three years. It's light, easy to clean, dries quickly, and is easy to store. It's plain Jane but it definitely works great for us.

As far as using on sand, like in a desert, I agree that it might not be the best choice because the sand might try to leach up through it.
