Canopy mat question

Hi. My wife and I are new to the travel trailer scene and I'm wondering how everyone transports their canopy mats. If you lay it in the trailer, the vibration spreads sand and dirt everywhere. Any ideas?? Thanks, Rick

Most patio mats can fold up and fit inside a mat bag. I do sweep my mat before folding and putting away. It goes into the storage bay. You can get a mat bag from Camping World and other RV stores.

We sweep them, roll them up and store in pvc tubes under the trailer which are right in front of the door directly below the awning strut.

I like that. What size mats do you have? I use 2 9x12 mats usually keep em in front storage which works fine, but if i could roll them there wouldent be any creases !
