Size of rv pati mat/rug

We have a Sunseeker 3010 DS. What size patio mat would you get? Awning is 15.6 long so I was thing 15x9 but I can't find any online that are that size.

Having a patio mat that completely covers under your awning helps you make use of that space. If there isn't one that is the exact size, then I would go the next one larger. We are still using the mat we purchased 2 or 3 TTs ago...and because I "sized up" I still have one that fits under the 13.5 foot awning we have now, which is the largest awning we've had - on the smallest camper.

WallyMart has a 9’x18’. Its inexpensive and durable. Been using mine for about 7 years. The edge finish stitching has rotted but the plasticized rug material is just fine.

I would strongly consider two mats, so that each might cover 1/2 of the area. Say like two 6x9... or 8x12
WOuld be easier to fold up and stow rather then one large one, and possibly you would not need but only one for any particular site.

We bought two 9x12 outdoor rugs at Christmas Tree Store, they were inexpensive, reversible and had pictures of palm trees on them. They even have loops on the corners for pegging down.

Check out these. Lightweight, durable, easy to clean, won't rot and decently priced. Made from recycled pop bottles:

Saw those. Too bad only 6' long. I can see myself tripping on gap/overlap between 2 rugs, and don't feel like taping stuff together.

For width, measure from the tires to the outside vertical usable space under Awning! If you decide to use Support Poles in the future with Stakes the mat might cause issues if to wide! The length is totally up to your desires, we like 1 mat verses 2 or more,Tripping Hazzard at overlaps! Look at "J&J Mats and Sun Screens" Lake Wales,Fla. They will make Any Size you desire, and Quality materials, Small Company, USA! Youroo! !

I guess if you will be using the mat a lot and need a premium quality mat I would consider them. But their prices are premium too. Not by a 30% or more either. More like double the price. And their website is pitiful.

Somebody has to be the Debbie Downer here...

If you really want a patio rug...check into one of those bamboo fold-up patio mats/rugs you can get at Camping World or Walmart (in the RV section)...or just about any other sporting goods or RV supply/parts store.

They are very light weight and run around $50 bucks!

My ex used to insist that we carried a patio rug with us.

But she wasn't the one that had to deal with it.

She found a 6 x 8 patio rug she loved at a Denver, CO furniture store (AFW.com) and brought it home (around $100)...what a major PITA that thing was to carry around!

They are great...until it rains the morning you want to pack up and head home!

Or you find out that there was a fire ant hole directly under where you laid it out, or one of your campground neighbors' dogs peed on it while you were out sightseeing!

Been there...done that!

Damn things weigh a ton when they are wet (and might put you over your tow capacity ), and when I had a TT and my truck had a topper on it, I wasn't too worried about it as long as we both were available to pick it up and slide it into the back of the truck.

But when we switched to a new truck with a 5th-wheel hitch in the back...guess what no longer would fit back there...that damn rug!

And who wants to slide a wet, dirty, nasty sand and leaf filled rolled up patio rug into the basement of their RV...certainly not me!

Used it once in the 5'ver, then it lived in the basement for a year...then I finally gave it away to someone at a campground who was staying there long term that didn't plan on rolling it up and moving it around (maybe that's why she is now my 'ex'... ).

I've found that a lot of campgrounds and RV parks won't let you put rugs on the grass (kills it-see lighter colored grass in second shot by picnic table-this was after one night) and will only let you put out patio rugs if they have a cement patio pad next to the campsite anyway...at least out here in the west where grass is considered an endangered species.

Personally, I think that door mats are a much better option...one at the bottom of the steps and one just inside the RV's door!

I prefer using two. Allows several configurations and works well if you have a site with limited space. I have had several sites where fire ring placement would interfere with the use of a larger mat.

Go to Lowes or Home Depot, Buy a 6' wide x whatever length you need of indoor/outdoor carpet in a multitude of colors. Easy to sweep, roll up and will outlast the RV

X2 I wish I would have done this. I have a large one and it is a pain to fold and carry.

Picked up 8x12 bamboo at CW on sale for $49. When wet, lay it across table if one is there. Almost dry in hour or so, typical do this prior to pick up. Dry time I get packed up to go.

We got ours at Walmart and it works great for not too much money. Ours has stripes and when we put it out on grass, the white stripes had nice green grass while the dark stripes had yellow grass. Won't do that again, that's for sure.

This bamboo mat y'all speak of; Does it hold up to chair legs and such? They don't punch through or divot it up too bad?

I just bought some "classic" AstroTurf style rug material at a salvage/closeouts store (Ollie's). They had it in a lot of sizes. I was looking for some to cover my stairs and got a piece sized to cut some off and the rest for a patio rug. I may have paid $15 for a 12x8' piece. 100% plastic, spray it off, dries quick. I call it the Hillary rug
