Best awning mat to go with AS blue?

We have two AS Zip Dee chairs that are the solid color blue. The awning on our Safari is AS gray. I am shopping for an awning mat, but cannot tell what color will go with the AS blue of our chairs.

Does anyone have a mat that goes well with the AS blue? If so, would you mind telling me what brand and what color?

Thanks,
Pat

Just something to go in front of the door, or something to cover more ground?
If just something to go in front of the door, the Airstream Store sells genuine Airstream doormats in grey with a black rubber border, with the word "AIRSTREAM" in blue block letters.

Hi, Terry! Something to go under the awning, maybe 6x9 or 9x12. I have looked at several different brands, but it is hard to tell colors in their pictures. Pat

We got a blue indoor-outdoor rug at home depot for about $30 that is lightweight, sweeps and hoses off easily, and is a tight closed-loop weave that is soft under bare feet. Two of them fit perfectly under the awning, and the dusty darkish blue tone goes well with the gray. Don't have the Zip-Dees but I think they'd look fine. The rug is definitely a subtle look--not a lot of pizzaz.I use a door mat at the stairs as well.
Good luck.
Janet

The best mat is the Ultimat by Zip Dee. It is comes in Airstream Fancy Blue. I think that is the only color in which it is offered. It is a material similar to the material that some folks use to keep things from sliding around in their cabinets. It is extremely lightweight, can be folded into nothing for storage and does not retain moisture. It can rain that night. You can fold it up next morning without getting wet and be on your way. It is durable and has stood up to our regular and extended use. We kept it out for close to four months this summer while in Colorado and Texas. We travel somewhere at least monthly all year. It costs way more than $30, but its the best.

We bought a nice blue outdoor rug at Costco for $25. Great match for our blue awning.

I think you can buy the Zip Dee mat at zipdeeinc.com.

Heres a green idea...
Would always look nice like a green lawn and go with anything

Tough to beat the Red, White & Blue...goes with everything
