Costco sells one of the nicer looking, to my taste, outdoor mats in various sizes. Free shipping too, at least up here in Canada.

we bought astroturf at homedepot. in the hotter states you can buy actual fake grass that people put down on lawns. it is softer but thicker and harder to stow. we have an 8'x12' square that we can hose off and roll up. we avoid the rubber backed stuff. it is inexpensive, easy to clean and stow. we put it in the TV bed now but I am going to weld an additional tube under the TT to stow it. drill a couple of drain holes and it can even be put away wet.

As I said before, our group tried everything......

Astroturf is almost OK if it doesn't rain, and the ground is dry. They don't drain or dry well, harder to clean, and don't lay flat as well. If you like astroturf, it is most likely because you haven't used one of the poly mats. But yeah....the astroturf is cheaper, and a little easier to move IF they are DRY.

We usually attempt an easy clean of our typical, poly-woven rug by sweeping first, folding lengthwise with a sweep each fold, roll using the campsite table, stand on end for a few minutes if wet, and then roll plus use a stretchy belt around the waist. However dirty it remains, no sweat, as I made a Sunbrella fabric bag from boat cover remnants which holds all remaining debris until it comes out again. The bag goes in the shower stall as we hit the road. Invert the bag and shake between uses - minimal work.

That poly-weave rug need a freshening up? Toss it in the pool. Chlorinated water might fade it a bit but it sure does get 'em clean.

I got the ZipDee Ultimat a few months ago and it's great. The price is good too. I can't seem to see it on their site right now, perhaps they have sold out but you could call.
