Mats for Camping

Mats for Camping

Why go camping or caravanning in Australia?

Australia has some of the best opportunities for camping anywhere in the world. We have huge areas of natural beauty, fantastic beaches, and efficient ways to get you to where you want to go. Added to that, there’s always somewhere on our island continent where the weather is just perfect for camping, whatever the month. This makes camping the best way to see Australia with your family and friends. Camping can be a wonderful way to experience nature close at hand and is a great way to have family time, while still being an economical yet rewarding holiday.

How do you pick which must-have camping mat is right for you?

First step is to take into consideration your floor space dimensions. Consider if you want to completely fill the space, partially cover it or have the mat size extend beyond your annex to accommodate for shoes and outdoor equipment. Your caravan annex size will roughly fall into the following categories: A small caravan awning fabric length will be 4.3m or smaller. A medium will be between 4.6m and 6.1m, and a large awning will take up 6.4m plus. Caravan awnings are measured in terms of the space between your caravan and the extended length of the outdoor setting. Think about what the space will be used for, the number of people who will be staying with you and your capacity to use the space to entertain, relax and reflect on your time away from home. It’s important to choose the right mat that will enhance, rather than detract, from your camping and caravanning adventure. Your caravan annex floor matting does not have to be drab in order to be durable. You can choose to use mats that are brightly coloured, made from sustainable and recycled materials that are easily cleaned. Visually pleasing, yet tough, mats can bring a sense of fun and peace to your outdoor experience. Considering these mats are designed to weather the great outdoors, you can expect them to get a lot of use and still come up squeaky clean after a quick hose off or sweep with a dry broom. They are purposefully designed to be both stylish and practical – they can be pegged down once onsite, meaning that they’ll quickly become part of the furniture and won’t cause any issues by flying up or coming loose. You can also add extra eyelets to your mat to secure it down.
