Thanks to the OP and also Bold for showcasing this product. I'd been searching for a mat for some time but everything else has been either too cheap or too ugly or too poorly reviewed. I was looking for just a tiny bit of cool factor, and this is not your Grandma's RV mat, obviously.

That being said, a couple of pointers here for anyone who may desire to purchase upon reading this thread.

As I write this post, Amazon is not sold out of the medium orange, but they are in price escalation mode due to restricted supply. The cheapest that I found was $114, as opposed to about $79 with free shipping for the blue.

Other re-sellers offer the orange including Walmart and Wayfair, but I opted to order directly from the maker CGear, which uses PayPal. I paid $88 (shipping included) for the medium orange.

Interesting about Amazon. Yesterday when I looked at it the orange was around $73.

I have noticed that too when we originally ordered. At first it wasn't available for prime. And then it was. Then it wasn't again.

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

So when you see it, don't hesitate. Put it in your wishlist and watch it if it's not prime.

Watchout for "dynamic pricing". An item may be very inexpensive then the price goes up as people buy more. My wife saw this buying Teva sandals on Amazon; $25 one day and $83 two days later, same vendor same site.

At times I've had the price go up substantially while an item was still in my cart. I would "add to cart", turn away from the computer to answer the phone or something, and when I turn back to the computer, there's a flag saying the price just went up 40% or whatever.

At that point I will buy from a non-Amazon source on general principle, even if it is more expensive. I don't want the algorithms to get the idea that I don't care about price inflation. That sort of thing could get out of control really fast.

We have the CGear large (10' x10') blue/green mat for two years and love it when we use a mat.
Works great at keeping the dirt outside and dries extremely quickly on the occasion it rains ( almost every camping trip).
The size is perfect under our 20' airstream awning with just enough room for two chairs and small table.

We have two CGear mats and one sold by ZipDee and we tend to use them all!
Ours are 4 years old now and other than holes from fire embers are holding up well. Awesome product!

Thanks, now with two Labs we have been looking for a "sand mat".

I have been very happy with this mat. Very durable, easy to clean, folds up small for a 9' X 20' rug.:

I ordered one (8' X 8') from Austin Kayak this evening for $59.00 with free shipping. I got blue, but they also had orange. The 10 X 10 was $79.00. I will try this one and, if it is as good as advertised, get another 8 X 8 to go with it.

Beautiful, but border and hold-down straps fail quickly

We got two of these mats based on feedback in this forum. They are beautiful mats and do stay clear of sand - goes right through. However, the fabric used for the border of the mats fails rapidly probably due to UV damage if left ouside all the time - within weeks. This same fabric is used to attach the D-ring holddowns. I have five of those D-rings in a bag from failures of the hold-down straps. These were not from high tension - they failed with a just a slight finger pull - the fabric had completely disintegrated. The fabric of the mat seems to be different and had not failed. I wrote the vendor trying to find out if a sailmaker would destroy the fabric by putting stainless grommets in it, but in a couple of tries on the web site I got no response at all. I found similar comments from some users when going back through the Amazon reviews. I will update this when we try the mat out with grommets in the mat - if they hold and don't destroy the mat, great. Otherwise, this is definitely poorly designed for long-term use as an RV mat.

I just received a size Medium of the Cgear sand free mats, in this linen-ey Brown, and am absolutely delighted with its very compact size folded up.

No grommets for attaching to the ground, but enough weight to it that it will hopefully not be an issue.

With sand and dirt, having something which reduces the tracking inside improves ones quality of life.
