Richard,
below is a picture of our outdoor rug...and the dog...
I purchased three rugs from Home Depot for about $20 each they hold up well and run the entire length of the trailer. The rugs are thin enough that when it rains or if you have heavy morning dew it does not take a long time to dry.

We "borrowed" on of my parents oriental rugs while house-sitting!

We have used the same Presto-Fit Mat from Camping World that Jack linked to. We have the light teal/seafoam green color (not the astro-turf green) and really like it.

The only problem we have is our own doing...if your trailer is polished, your rug will melt by the hot-spot reflections. I know this happens with the nylon woven mats too and the "daisey" door mats - we had one. I posted a picture awhile back...in this thread.

So, I'm still looking for a better "no-melt" solution ~

You will love the zip dee mats. We bought the 8 x 20'. It is EXTREMELY light weight. It doesn't get wet. Moisture goes right through. It doesn't hold dirt. Just shake it right off. Most dirt falls through. The best thing is that it folds to nothing making it easy to store and carry. We carry ours in the truck. At a campsite, you can deploy it as a full 8' wide rug, or you can fold it over and use it as a 4' rug. When folded, it lays flat on the folded edge. In some sites utilizing cement pads, there isn't room to put out a full 8' wide rug, but the 4' configuration works wonderfully. As another poster wrote, it is of the same material as that sold for keeping items from sliding around in cabinets. We've had ours for almost three years and have used it extensively for months at a time. It is durable. No problems at all so far and the blue matches the trim on the Airstream perfectly and the color of the awning.

I got one of the In the Shade ground cover mats and it is extremely lightweight, folds up very small and dirt and rain goes right though it. Very impressive for the money. They are made by Susan Littke of Rocky Mount, NC. She mainly makes mats, sunshades, step covers etc for Casita trailers but the ground mats can be used by anyone. She made custom step covers and a ground mat for my Airstream and they are very professional. You can contact her at Littke@hotmail.com for more information and pictures.

i have the zip dee mat. it is first class.

rolls up to about the size of a small sleeping bag, bungee cord it and toss it in the rear compartment.

it is the only way to go if you still have the white carpet from the factory.
