Though OP was looking for opinions from those with A-frame trailers, I think this might apply:

Though now unavailable, I purchased this with the knowledge that it was a 5x8 mat and not 9x12 as advertised...and it is perfect for me. The material and construction works extremely well in rain/dirt/sand/grass applications. It brooms exceptionally well. And no cleaning before putting away...just broom the top and fold the undersides together then roll and you are ready for the next deployment.

And, BTW, the beige and brown colors match the trailer colors extremely well. And for $25 it was a no-brainer.

We use a GrassWorx Garage Door mat. Works great.

Add a microfiber mat at the top of the steps to absorb moisture.

I use a reversible RV patio mat. It does not mold or mildew, folds up nicely into a carrying case that came with it, sweeps off or rinses off with water quickly and easily, dries quickly, is not supposed to kill the grass and is lightweight. It helps to greatly reduce the amount of debris being brought into the camper on footwear, even though we don't wear shoes inside the camper. The dog is notorious for bringing in sand, etc. on her paws, despite wiping them off first so the patio mat is helpful with reducing that problem.

Trailer Outdoor Rug/Mat

I have found the Trailer/RV Rug to be great. Last place we used it was extremely dusty and returning home washed it with soap and water on the driveway. Let it dry. Perfect again.
I also made a bag to store ours in this was a modification of an DIMPA IKEA bag and it has worked great. 1-P1160062.jpg2-P1160063.jpg
