What to look for in RV Patio 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 patio mat:

  • need something big to go under the stairs so you don’t have to step in dirt before entering the RV – helps keep RV cleaner
  • Want 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 (could use patio stakes to hold it down)
  • quick drying
  • water permeable (you want water to drip through it so it doesn’t get soggy and heavy)
  • UV protectant 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.

Examples of quality patio mats

Below are some examples of quality RV mats. Most of them are available on Amazon unless otherwise noted.

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

This RV patio mat by Mountain Mat is available on Amazon .

It is eco-friendly because it uses recycled plastic (polypropylene). And it comes with a carrying case.

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

2) Reversible Outdoor RV rug by Sand Mine

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 & Cream)

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..

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

3) Outdoor Mat by Reversible Mats

Reversible Mats 159181 Black & White Swirl Pattern Mat 9-Feet x 18-Feet

This is the large 9-foot by 18-foot outdoor mat made by Reversible Mats. It is quick drying and you can clean it by sweeping it or spraying it with water.

The same company makes smaller RV mats if this is too large.

4) Astro Turf or Synthetic Grass Mats

Realistic Thick Artificial Grass Turf Lawn -Indoor Outdoor Garden Lawn Landscape Synthetic Grass Mat - Thick Fake Grass Rug 6FTX12FT

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.

You can buy artificial grass rugs at most hardware stores or on Amazon.

Below is link to some popular fake grass on Amazon. (This is the 6ft x 12ft size…smaller sizes are usually less money.)

5) Oriental Rug – Outdoor Camping Mat by Camco

Camco 42853 Oriental Awning Leisure Mat-Charcoal 9' X 12', Charcoal Oriental

Camco – the leader in RV accessories – makes this charcoal-colored, reversible, outdoor camping mat with an oriental rug design.

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.

6) 9-foot x 12-foot Reversible RV Mat (available at Walmart)

This is a large, reversible RV mat that is available in a few different styles. It is available on Walmart.com

Some reviewers on the Walmart website mentioned it felt really nice under the 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.

7) 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.

How would this look under your RV awning?

8) Pirate Flag Outdoor Camper Mat

Professional EZ Travel Collection Reversible RV Outdoor Rug for Backyards, Beaches, Camping Grounds, Patios, and More, Storage Bag and Mat Stakes Included, Pirate (9x12)

Here is a quality outdoor camper mat with a novel design that looks like a Jolly Roger pirate flag. Fun RV accessory for a pirate-lover or maybe a Tampa Bay Buccaneers fan.

This outdoor rug by EZ Travel is reversible, has a UV-coating, comes with a carrying bag, and it also comes with patio stakes to secure the edges.

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

9) BIG Outdoor Mat perfect for Independence Day

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

Here is a unique, BIG outdoor camper mat that measures 8-feet by 16-feet. So it should take up a large part of the ground under your RV awning.

It has a UV-coating to resist sun damage, and sand & small particles of dirt should slip down through the material.

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 outdoor RV 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 camping chairs
  • store it inside a length of PVC pipe
  • some folks use a garbage bag
  • 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 this concise look into some quality outdoor mats for camping.

  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!
