What to look for when buying RV Outdoor Mats

People camp in different ways, but a general consensus is that you want the following things in an outdoor RV mat.

What to look for with an RV camping mat:

  • large enough to go under your RV’s stairs so you don’t have to step in dirt before entering the RV – helps keep RV cleaner
  • Want the mat to extend along RV too because you usually sit under awning.
  • Want one that is easy to sweep and clean
  • Resists curling up or has a way to peg down (like corner loops) – so that you don’t trip
  • quick drying, breathable material that is mildew resistant
  • water permeable (you want water to drip through it so it doesn’t get soggy and heavy)
  • has a UV protection coating to improve durability

Where to buy an RV mat?

There are lots of places to buy an RV mat or outdoor rugs. This includes most of the large box stores, RV dealerships, Menards, Walmart, Home Depot, Costco, and Amazon.

I found ours at our local Rona (which is owned by Lowes).

List of some of the Best RV Patio Mats

Below are some examples of quality RV mats.

You can get mats in a variety of different sizes.

Some of the most common sizes are 6×9, 9×12, and even some larger sizes like 9×18.

As an RV owner you’ll want to choose a rug that suits your needs, plus you’ll have to be able to store it and carry it to your next campsite. So keep that in mind.

1) Eco-friendly Outdoor RV Patio mat by Mountain Mat

Mountain Mat Earth-Friendly RV Patio Mat Size 8' x 20' for Campers, Campsites - Premium 5mm Thick Heavy Duty, Waterproof, Reversible Rugs Recycled Polypropylene, with Carry Bag (8' x 20', Black)

This is a very cool choice because not only are these outdoor RV rugs really big (8×20), but they’re also eco-friendly. The company Mountain Mat makes these polypropylene rugs out of recycled plastic.

And it comes with an included carry bag for storing and transporting it.

It is stain-resistant, has a UV-coating to improve durability and to resist UV rays, and it can be easily cleaned by spraying it with a hose.

This is their 8×20 model, but they also make an 8×16 and 8×12 version.

Below is a photo of their 8×16 model.

SAND MINE Reversible Mats, Plastic Straw Rug, Modern Area Rug, Large Floor Mat and Rug for Outdoors, RV, Patio, Backyard, Deck, Picnic, Beach, Trailer, Camping (9' x 12', Black & Grey)

This reversible outdoor rug came highly recommended by some people in the camping Facebook groups I’m in. It is stylish and is available in a 5’x8′ size, 9′ by 12′ size or the large 9’x18′ size.

It is made of new polypropylene and is breathable. The manufacturer claims you can lay it on grassy areas without damaging the grass.

This plastic rug has a UV protectant coating to minimize damage and fading caused by the sun.

Do you like the look of this one?

3) Outdoor Mat by Stylish Camping (RV patio mat 9×12)

Stylish Camping 229124 9-feet by 12-feet Reversible Mat, Plastic Straw Rug, Large Floor Mat for Outdoors, RV, Patio, Backyard, Picnic, Beach, Camping - Hunter Mat (Green/Beige)

This stylish looking camping mat is actually made by the company “Stylish Camping”.

It is 9-foot by 12-foot size. I like the wilderness themed pictures on it: a great look for camping.

It’s quick drying and you can clean it by sweeping it or spraying it with water. It also has a UV coating to resist UV damage from the sun.

Plus, it has corner loops to stake it into the ground. This is an excellent choice for an RV outdoor rug if you are happy with the wilderness design. It is popular and highly rated on Amazon.

But will it work for your camper? (The company also makes different sizes.)

4) Plastic straw Rug 9×12 size by Stylish Camping

Stylish Camping 119127 9-feet by 12-feet Reversible Mat, Plastic Straw Rug, Large Floor Mat for Outdoors, RV, Patio, Backyard, Picnic, Beach, Camping (Brown/Beige)

Here is another popular, reversible mat by the company Stylish Camping.

I personally find the design a little busy…but thousands and thousands of campers have left positive ratings for this rug.

It is available in three different sizes (6×9, 9×12 and 9×18), plus you can get it in three different color schemes.

If you want a popular and highly rated RV mat, this one has to be on your list.

5) CGEAR RV Mat – sand free mat

CGEAR RV Camping Mat, Sand Free Outdoor Reversible Rug for Campsite, Backyard, Patio, Deck, and Beach (Orange, 8' x 11')

The company CGEAR makes these highly-rated RV outdoor mats that they claim are military-grade construction. (What makes it military-grade? They don’t exactly say, but it does have brass eyelets at the corner to stake it down).

This mat is an excellent choice if you regularly camp near beaches or other sandy spots because this mat is marketing as basically a sand mat.

Designed to let sand fall through the mat so you don’t track it into your camper. It is often used as a beach blanket/mat too.

It is quite thin and not much padding, so it may not be great for small children that still flop around.

But if you want a mat to keep the sand out, check this out.

They make it in 3 size options and it comes with a draw-string bag for easy transportation and packing.

6) Astro Turf or Synthetic Grass Mats

XLX TURF Artificial Grass Rug 6FT x 10FT, Fake Grass Synthetic Astroturf Thick Indoor/Outdoor Garden Lawn Mat for Backyard Landscape Decor

Another option that some campers use is to put a synthetic grass rug (like Astro Turf) under their RV awning and use that as their patio mat.

So fake grass isn’t just for yards…it can be used an outdoor carpet for camping too.

Young children like to play on grass and here is an easy, portable way to bring a grassy area with you when you go camping.

And you could convert your outdoor camping area into your own little putting green! Just bring a plastic container, lay it on its side and putt into it.

Below is link to some popular fake grass on Amazon. (This is the 6ft x 10ft size…smaller sizes are usually less money.)

7) Outdoor RV Mats by Camco


Camco – the leader in RV accessories – makes this reversible, outdoor camping mat with what they call a “botanical” design.

This particular mat is rather uniquely shaped – it is 8-feet by 20-feet.

They claim it will not trap water, and it is coated with a UV-protectant to increase durability against the sun’s rays. It can be cleaned with soap and water to get it looking new again.

8) 9-foot x 12-foot Reversible RV Mat (available at Walmart)

This is large RV mat has a reversible design and is available in a few different styles.

It is available on Walmart.com

Some of the Walmart product reviews mentioned it felt really nice under bare feet.

It has a UV-stabilizer on it, has nylon straps on the corners so you can stake it down to prevent tripping. You can give it a thorough cleaning by hosing it off with water.

And it prevents ripping and unraveling at the edges because you don’t want an camper mat with edges that could trip or catch your feet.

9) Colorful Floral RV Mat (an attractive outdoor mat for your camper)

RV Mat Patio Rug Colorful Floral Design 9x12

I’ve added this one to the list because it has the features we want – like easy to sweep off, large size, durable with UV-protectant, nylon loops at the corners to stake it down – but I’ve also included it because it is colorful and lively.

The other camper outdoor rugs featured in this article are a little drab.

It is a 9-foot by 12-foot outdoor mat.

11) BIG Outdoor Mat perfect for Independence Day

Faulkner Deluxe 49600 Multi-Purpose Independence Day Mat, 8' x 16'

RV Outdoor Mat Accessories

Yes there are a LOT of accessories in the camping world, and RV mats are no different.

You can buy stakes to help secure outdoor rugs to the ground. This should help minimize curling and the tripping hazard. They call these patio stakes.

How to store your RV outdoor mats

Many RV mats come with carrying bags (which is awesome), but if yours doesn’t, there are still lots of ways to store your RV patio mat during travel days.

Here are some ways that people store their RV mat:

  • use a bag from their camp chairs
  • store it inside a length of PVC pipe
  • some folks use a garbage bag
  • tuck it inside their camper’s “basement” storage area
  • and others just clean it off, roll it up and store it on the floor inside their RV

Many of these ways to store an outdoor camper rug was from the collective wisdom of a RV Facebook group I’m in. (So many helpful, and handy people on there.)

I hope you’ve enjoyed these RV patio mats.

Which one will work for your RV?

Whichever one you choose it’ll be a great starting point to keeping the dirt out of your RV. And since most of these are available at an affordable price you could buy a different rug if you feel you need a larger option.

8 thoughts on “11 quality RV Patio Mats to keep the dirt out [with pics]”

  1. Camco outdoor mat is great, the best thing about this rug is that it is completely weatherproof. Does not retain water and dries completely in just minutes. Very satisfied with it.

  2. We purchased two of Reversible for a pool project on our back patio pad. It folds up easy, has a carrying bag that comes with that is easy to put it back in, none of that wrestling the thing to cooperate, it cleans easy, is water resistant, and has a “soft” feel. The colors are bright and vibrant too! Great value for the price offered!

  3. Reversible mat is also great. I like that it’s large enough to cover my entire area without the need for two rugs, and the style complements my RV nicely. The rug is very soft under my feet, although the black gets heated when exposed to direct sunlight.

  4. We use Camco’s RV patio mats with our camping trailers. It is quite sturdy and keeps things quite clean, even in very dirty environments. When we’re ready to go, we just shake it out and throw it in the holder until next time.
