What size camping mat do you veterans recommend for our LE II that goes into production on Wednesday?

We have used this 9X12 in a brown and tan color and it has served us well. It washes up with a standard garden hose, drys pretty fast  and packs up nicely in the over size bag.

We use a 9’ x 12’ outdoor rug from Camco.  We previously used a 6’ x 9’ rug but found it was too small when we had two chairs and a table set up

We keep it simple with a 2' x 3' Waterhog mat.

We also have a smaller one on the inside as you enter the trailer.

They work great.

Dark colors are best.

Thanks!  Good to know the 6' x 9' is too small.

That depends - 

Apparently since the words "we" and "our" were used it appears as though the intended use will be for a couple.  If that is the case then in many situations a rug of 6'x9' would be too small.  However, for a person that travels solo most of the time a 6'x9' rug is more than enough and is a bunch easier to handle and store.

We use both.  It depends on your site, sometimes the small rug works best, sometimes the big one.  Often we don’t use one at all.  It depends on how and where you camp.  Mike

Correct.  We are “we” as in a couple camping.  Two adults with two large camp chairs plus camp footstools, a small table for drinks & reading material located between the chairs, and usually a larger folding table near the rear of the camper for outdoor cooking/meal prep.  The 9’x12’ outdoor rug is big enough to run from under the steps at the front of the trailer to most of the way towards the rear.  Makes it much easier for walking around barefoot at gravel campsites.    But that’s our setup.  Others may have different needs.

It's really a matter of preference. 

We've used the same smaller 5 x 7 or 8 mat for a dozen years, and another small rug or two in front of the steps. It's easier to clean and handle. 6 x 9 would also fit under the Elite awning, too.

A number of places with grass sites don't allow rugs, at all, (they kill the grass) but will ignore a small walkoff mat at the door.

We use a 9x14 purchased at Walmart for $50ish that works well & cleans up easily. However, when it has served its purpose & is dumpster bound, we may get two smaller ones instead. Sometimes the 9x14 is too big & I would think smaller ones would be easier to handle & store.

Thanks everyone!  We ordered a 9 x 12 Camco from Amazon.  

Next purchase is a water purification system; decided on the Clear Source Ultra.  Gotta have good water.

R-Villa starts down the production line tomorrow!  And we are waiting for a new GMC ¾-ton, too!  Hard to believe it is finally happening.
