We use a woven RV mat. It cleans well and dries fast.

So far I haven't seen it posted in any campgrounds we've been at, but we were told some places will only allow woven mats, because they allow moisture through and won't kill the grass.

Yep, but the newer sites there have big wide asphalt drives so only half the width of the rv carpet would be in the grass. No biggie we make do

This is the one we use, we have two, the 2nd one is for the outside kitchen.
(Heavy 9 X 12 mat with tight weave and reinforced stitching for long lasting durability indoors or out.
Dries quickly plus it's mold and mildew resistant. Heavy-duty piping on two sides with reinforced corners and stake loops. UV coated polypropylene material for weather and fade resistance.)

Many parks will not allow anything but the breathable type woven mats...the others kill the others have said the plastic woven ones wash up and dry up quickly and if you have to pull up camp in the rain, they dont hold water like the others do...Costco usually has them in early spring for a very reasonable price...cheaper than what I have found online for the same size. Ours is 2 yrs old and still in great shape.

Home Depot and Walmart's web sites have them too. Just search for patio mats.

I went to Lowe's......bought some thin outdoor carpet. Comes in 12' widths......and got a 6' length. They guy said they sell a lot for Rv's. We bought gray to match the trailer. Was 20.00 for the whole piece. It has gotten really wet and before leave.....I just roll it up....and stick it in the front compartment or back of the truck. Dries quickly and not heavy at all.

We too use a folding woven mat. Water runs through, folds up fairly easy, and stores great. We have had ours about 6 years, and it is just starting to get a little frayed at the folds.
