This is what we use and rcommend. We bought 2 about 12 years ago, this may be there last year. We have 2 more, one was a gift, and the other came with this camper. We love them, and depending on the site you are own, you may want multiple. The links I added are for example, I am not saying they are the best prices! My in laws just bought a bigger size than our 9x12, for around $40 in Myrtle beach.
We highly recommend these, and the almart ones are priced decent, but they are not the ceapest!
Good luck!

Yep, we use the Wally World beach mats, too. We tried the grass carpet but that holds too much sand. The mats clean up nicely.

Oh and anudder thing, if these mats are dry when you get ready to fold them up, just shake them and almost everything falls right off! It rained hard on us Saturday and Sunday, while camping, so they were pretty dirty, I hung them on a Redneck clothes line(12' high) until they dried out, I shook them off and folded them up until next time.

These mats are well worth the price. Especially if you are a Amazon Prime member (tax free + free shipping) We got the largest one (9x18) and are very happy with it. Like Super Coop says, pick 'em up, let 'em dry and they shake clean.

This mat gets bonus points for coming with a roomy storage bag JIC you have to pack out wet/dirty

We use indoor/outdoor carpet from Lowes.....it is 12 feet wide on a roll and just buy what you need. I got 8 feet and it was 25.00. Holds up really well and dries quick. Got a light gray but many colors available. Sales guy said they sell a lot of it to RV people.

We have a plain green RV mat that is 12 by 24. Works great and dries fast. With a double awning now it covers most of the living space when rustic camping keeping some of the forest floor in the forest! :0

We have one from Costco. They get them in during spring. They look like skinny plastic straws woven together. They don't absorb water and sand shakes out easily. Hose em off to clean. You can get similar ones in various sizes. Home Depot and Canadian Tire and even our garden centre have had them.
