Yes, but it's just as easy to stake thru the corners of the material. We were at Lovell lake in Kansas last year and had four nights of tornado warnings with 70+ mph winds. My mat flew about 600yds the one night and was found in the next campground over by the hosts. Still good, just no more corner tabs.

rv mat

we have had the green "turf" style mat since 1997 or so and still looks great! you just hose off any dirt mud and let it dry. it is great for keeping dirt out of camper

Remember the good old days....for us ole timer campers, remember how excited we were when we realized that new "fake grass/astroturf" would be great to use camping? We actually still have 3 big pieces (literally had them for 25 years) that we only use a few times a year when we set up at the lake for a couple of weeks at a time. It's heavy, doesn't dry very fast, but it sure keeps the camper clean and gives the grandbabies a soft place to crawl. For short trips these days, we got one of these new polypropylene mats and really like it.

We've used the older style green mats for years, now we are on our 2nd newer style mat, the 1st one, made the mistake of putting it in the back of the pickup near the tailgate under the fw, whatever you do, don't think two 2 by 10's placed on top of the mat will keep it there even when wet, that was an expensive blunder on my part.

I just use indoor/outdoor carpet from Lowes. 12 feet wide and just buy whatever length ya need. I got 8 feet long....25.00 total and it has worked great. Has been sitting in total water for a week once... and never hurt anything. When we move....I just wash it off.....let it dry and roll it up for our next stop.

Just getting ready for our first camping trip. Am I going to regret not having one of these before the trip?

You'll likely want something. A buddy of mine uses nothing but a welcome mat and that's good enough for him.
