The best RV outdoor rugs and camping mats are durable yet attractive and keep the dust down around your RV… 

Jennifer and I love the outdoors. However, we do not love all of the dirt from the outdoors being tracked into our rig. 

We have found that a great camping gear item is a durable and easy-to-clean RV rug. Most of these are made from plastic and are lightweight and easy to clean.

The best part about them? They combine the (clean) comfort of home with the outdoor peace of nature. They help you feel cozy and right at home while keeping the outdoors outside your rig.

Stylish Camping 9 x 18 Reversible Mat, Traditional Pattern - Best RV Outdoor Rugs

The Stylish Camping Reversible Mat is a well-loved Amazon item. Over 12,000 people have reviewed this rug and given it over a four-star average! 

This rug is soft and durable and made from hearty virgin polypropylene material. That means it can withstand dirt and other camping wear and tear, like people sitting in chairs. 

It creates an excellent barrier between the dirt and the RV. People and animals will walk over it before entering the RV, leaving behind dirt and debris. 

It is also effortless to clean, so that left behind dirt can be washed away as soon as you get home. You spray it down with a hose, let it dry, and stow it again!

This mat is also good for the surrounding environment. It is breathable and will not harm grass beneath it. Most of us that love camping also love plants which makes this a plus!

Another bonus is that this mat is very lightweight and compact. You can fold it up, toss it in the complimentary storage bag and be on your way. 

Choose from three color combinations: brown and beige, blue and light green, or burgundy and beige.

The Fab Habitat Ombre rug is beautiful and unlike most other outdoor RV rugs. It is an ombre design that comes in many different color schemes. 

The great thing about the Fab Habitat rug is that it comes in many different sizes, too. You can get a large one for a sitting area and match it with smaller ones for other parts of your camping area. 

The rug is made from 100% recycled plastic tubes woven together very tightly. It rolls right up to stow in your RV.

It is highly durable and can withstand wear and tear from you and your camping visitors, including your pets. 

It is waterproof, which makes hosing it down a breeze. You can easily wash it, so it feels clean and fresh for each trip. Just make sure it dries completely before storing it.

This recommendation comes from Donna B. in the comments. She says, “Our favorite is a CGEAR RV Comfort Mat. Pricey but has out performed & outlasted all our previous mats and is especially good in sandy areas.”

17 Best Foldable Tables & Picnic Table Accessories for Camping

I think it’s safe to say that most RVers eat at least half of their meals outdoors. Not only is there more space outside, but the inside of your RV (no matter how nice it is) can’t compete with Mother Nature’s beauty.

Many campgrounds provide a picnic table at each campsite, but not all do. And sometimes it’s nice to set up a day camp somewhere with a good outdoor table.

So, I have a few great foldable table options for you.

Also, I’ve included some table accessories that are useful for both your portable table and campground-provided tables… Keep reading…

Another believer in CGear mats. Rather than rug that “blots” up moisture, sand, debris, this LIGHT matting allows air as well as all sand and most other debris to fall thru due to the weave structure. You can clean it by just picking it up and/or a light shaking, hosing it off (doesn’t absorb water) if necessary w/ food/mud etc stains. Folds/rolls up compactly and is super light for its coverage. VERY duarable.

Are any of the rugs reviewed able to be folded up and kept clean as you sweep them. The one we have folds up accordion style and is almost impossible to sweep and fold with laying the swept side back on the ground.
