Patio MatThe patio rug is perhaps the best RV accessory that you didn't know you needed. Far more than a mere decoration, the patio rug is as essential to outdoor living as it is to keeping your RV interior clean.
When placed outside of the RV entrance, patio rugs define an outdoor space that is ready for dining, entertaining, or relaxing. They also cover gravel, dirt, or grass with a practical surface that will keep your feet "off the ground" and provide a level surface for your lawn chairs.
As an RV owner, you probably appreciate nature more than the next person. But that doesn't mean you want it to be tracked inside. When going in and out of your RV, the patio rug acts as a magnet to strip shoes of unwanted grass, dirt, rain, or anything else your family might have gotten into in the great outdoors. And unlike your interior carpet, the patio rug is easy to clean with a simple hose. Trust me, unless you want to spend your whole weekend hovering over your entryway wearing out your hoover, a patio rug is a necessity.
When choosing a patio rug for purchase, there are a few things you may want to consider. First, many patio rugs incorporate design and colors that are compatible with today's modern RV. Many of them are even reversible so that you can change the design or color simply by flipping them over. Special materials are generally used for patio rugs that prevent mold and mildew and resist fading from the sun so as to ensure your purchase will last for years to come. If you aren't sure what kind you want or what size rug would be best for outside your RV, feel free to contact us. We can also advise you on the types of anchors and stakes that are available to make sure your patio rug stays in place.
Once you've experienced the convenience, cleanliness, and comfort of a patio rug while RVing, you might want to use it for other purposes. Bring it along when tailgating, picnicking, or hanging out at the beach. In fact, anywhere you want to create a comfortable outdoor space, your patio rug will serve your needs.
