Hi all, I was curious to know opinions on camping matts. I have had a look at a few different types, but some state that they are caravan park friendly. Is the cgear brand ok in parks or am I going to upset owners using this one. We would just like to have something to throw on the ground outside the camp trailer. Cheers. Odog

We have been using the interlocking rubber mats that are around. They are light (can blow away in a big wind!), easy to clean and don't hurt the grass.

Mark the edges with paint that go together and that will save time putting them up.

We have been using the Coast RV matting for a couple of years now and find it light,well priced and very practical. It doesn't matter which brand you you use, it will discolor grass over a few weeks but I think that most parks are geared for that. We have a 5mtr length x 2.5m wide one. Depending on your size if required they can be cut into maybe two sections. We also put a few pegs around the outside to keep it down.They are also fairly easy to fold up and store. Cheers, Bob.

Cheap 5mx5m (or 3mx3m) shade sail from Reject Shop/Go-Low work well and you peg them down vis the tie rings at the corners. Cost is only about $30-$40.

we have used a blue polytarp, interlocking foam mats, shademesh (slipery when wet) and finally bit the bullet and bought a 'Cgear' mat (ebay) and it beats all the others hands down. Even when it was wet the top stayed dry. Guess it depends on how often you'll be camping - we are permanent travellers so for us the investment was worthwhile. As we tend to stay in outback places/town there are generally no restrictions on use of a mat.

Used 70% shade cloth sewn double. Bunnings have 3600mm wide shade cloth.
Sew across in W pattern to prevent slipping. Works like magic and used for years along with a lot of my friends. Cheap and works and easy to clean, light and takes up little space.

Thanks all, it's great to hear different set ups, and get different ideas. Called into bcf today, can buy it off the roll, $50 or so a metre.. Bit pricey... Will check out eBay and see. Like the sound of the cgear. Thanks again. Odog

I have 2 different size cgear mats and in my opinion they are the best investment by far and would not bother with any other type of matting.. Just my opinion
