Best RV Patio Mats for 2021

(Camp Addict does NOT accept payment from any company to review or endorse their products.)

Dirt. Leaves. Pine needles. Desert debris. All 'hazards' of camping.

An RV patio mat not only can expand your living space to the outside, but it helps keep your rig clean by reducing the amount of the outside you track inside.

Below we review RV outdoor mats to give you an idea of what we consider to be the best camping rugs available.

To learn more about RV mats, you can read our Outdoor Camping Rug Guide.

RV Patio Mat Reviews

RV patio mats come in all sorts of different sizes, shapes, colors and patterns.

Chances are you will find something you like in the below reviewed products.

When it comes to conventional RV mats made out of woven plastic, we give Ming's Mark RV mats a slight edge over the Camco reversible outdoor mat.

Both are a good product at a competitive price.

We like that Ming's Mark offers interesting designs where Camco tends towards the solid patterns.

To each their own, we just prefer neat designs. You really cannot go wrong with either brand.

We also review an eco-friendly RV mat that uses recycled plastic, and a mat that makes sand and dirt disappear (maybe not disappear as it's not magic - the review explains how it works).

Read on to see which RV patio mat will fit how you camp!

This RV mat was originally designed by the military as a landing pad for helicopters.

    • Hi Cindy,

      Good question- we cannot speak to that as both of us just find ourselves with shoes on when outside. Your awning can shade it if you have one. This would help.

      Even so, we can’t imagine any mat would get hot enough to not be able to stand on it anymore.

      But don’t take our word as gospel for it.

    • Hi Nickles,

      Over stones? Yeeesh that doesn’t sound ideal! I wouldn’t do the CGSand Mat. It’s not very thick.

      Whatever you pick, you could try using two of them to try to help smooth out the stones. The Mings Mark and the Camco are about equally thick. I’d still think two would be better than one. Otherwise, maybe at least dig out the worst/tallest of the stones.

      Hope this helps!

    • Hey Beth!

      I checked with Kerri and she said she purchased it from Target a few years ago. Probably a season item. And may not be available these days, cuz, you know, fashion trends.

      Best of luck finding your perfect RV mat!

  • I’m looking for large patio mats with a college logo for our travel trailer. The awning is quite large… approximately 8′ x 18′. I need something really sturdy…not a canvas type…but one that won’t blow up if it’s windy. Any idea where I can find such a thing??

    • Hi Carol,

      We have found mats of that size, but not with a college logo printed on it. Any mat that large can and probably will blow up if it’s windy. They act like a large sail. Out west, where it can get windy often, people usually put their mat away if they know it’s going to be windy. Same with awnings… they are a big sail. If it’s even a little windy, best to be safe and put the awning in.

  • I’ve been using one of these mats for the past year or so. The mat itself is great: tough, indestructible. But the binding around the edges, and the straps that hold the D rings on are not UV resistant and have disintegrated. Spent a day sewing on new straps for the D rings by hand, not having a sewing machine in my trailer!

    • Hey Ursula,

      Which mat are you referring to (we review several on this page)? And how often do you have the mat outside? Do you leave it out year round?
