Prest-o-fit patio rug is what we bought.

We got a good deal on it, but it is worth every penny if you're looking for one that won't allow water and sand/mud to come through after a rainy day. My wife and I used it for a 2 month stretch and then sprayed it down with the garden hose...layed it out to dry and then folded it up and put it away for the season. A very good buy in my opinion, but more expensive then the astroturf.

They also make a color matched step wrap that you can attach to the outdoor fold out steps if you wanted to. We have two of those as well and found that we didn't have to sweep out the floors nearly as often as we did without them. Good stuff!

I just checked their website and they do make one that is breathable as well if your area is "anti-mat". For the winter, I'm not sure which one would be better...the aero-weave style that would drain the melt off or the rubber backed mat that won't allow the moisture to come through from the ground. Good luck either way.

There are a lot of mats out there. Just be sure they are the breathable type so they don't kill the grass. That is what a lot of parks do not want happen. These types also dry a lot faster. We got ours at Camping world years ago and its still good. you can fold it and role it so it will go into the bottom compartments. The only problem is squrels, they can smell food under it and have eaten a hole in it.

For those anti-mat parks and sites, kids, door mats, high water and a host of other reasons, have a look at this, to go along with whatever mat you get.
