parking on rubber horse stall mats

Been thinking about using 3/4" horse stall mats under tires while storing my TT. Sounds like having rubber on rubber would be good on the tires. I've used these mats for other application and they are easy to cut with a Stanley box knife.
Rubber Mat, Black, 4 ft. x 6 ft. - For Life Out Here

Might even be great if cut in strips for camp site leveling..

that's the best idea I've gotten from this forum yet, we have four or five sitting in the back of the barn. They will go in next time we move our 5er, thank you.

Very interesting idea. Where I park the camper is crushed rock. I used to use a 2x8 around 6' long, but they often split, and sometimes get cut up for other projects...lol. When I recently moved the 29RE under the barn, I used a section of plywood.
Next time I stop by TSC, I'm going to look closer at those mats.

Thanks for the idea. I'll be interested in others thoughts.

Those might hold water...might make the tires sit in a puddle when they sink in...

All the ones I've seen have deep, wide grooves to drain liquid.(urine)

Could be, OC. I've delivered a bunch of them, but was always in a hurry to get the heck out of there to pay much attention.

I have a pc of one in front of my metal lathe and it is a PITA to get the chips, etc out of the grooves.

Usually just use the air nozzle and blow them out onto the concrete.

I store my Jammer in a building with a crushed rock floor. Figure it would be better than sitting on the rocks or 1 x 8 boards.

I believe you can get them with smooth or grooved surface...
