Mine is a nylon type carpet - no rubber. I bought it from Lowes. I like it better than the RV mats that are out there because it actually gets sand/dirt off and water runs right through it. When on concrete or asphalt it does stay damp after a rain but it dries quickly. The sand shakes off of it pretty good. Most of the time I just bungee it to the rear bumper to transport.
One mistake I made with it was using it on a winter outing. It rained which changed to snow but the overnight temps dropped well below freezing. The wet carpet froze to the asphalt pad but I was able to get it lifted off. Then I had this very flat, very stiff 6' X 9' mat. What a picture that musta have been watching me haul this thing around my campsite. I brought it to my outside shower where I was able to melt it down to roll up.
