Review of Caravans Plus Service
Looking for the best annex flooring or a camping mat to keep the dirt and sand out of your caravan or tent? When it comes to outdoor matting there are few different types, here we will break down the different styles and their features so you can choose the best camping mat for you.
Synthetic Meshing Mats are made from layers of weaving (like shade-cloth) which makes them very durable and allows vast amounts of sand and dirt to fall readily through. They do however generally need to be pegged down to prevent bunching when in use.
Synthetic Mesh Mats use breathable fabric to ensure the grass below is not killed as well as being rot-proof and UV stable.
We stock two brands of synthetic mesh mats - CGear and Camec.
CGear Multimats are the top of the line when it comes to camping mats. Their patented multi-layer weave technology allows dirt, sand and dust to fall through the mat without allowing anything to come back up.
These mats are extremely durable and are made with reinforced edges and stainless steel D-rings and wont tear or fray - even if cut.
While these mats are more expensive than some other options we believe the quality, durability and features make them well worth the price tag.
Camec also offer synthetic mesh matting with a more economical price tag.
The range was redesigned in 2017 with a number of key improvements. These mats previously had a very loose weave which allowed a lot of dirt, sticks, etc to come up through the matting. The mats now have a much tighter weave (still slightly looser than the CGear) and are now a more neutral grey colour (previously bright green). They also have reinforced edges and eyelets for pegging.
These improvements have made the Camec Mats a good entry-level matting option that won't break the bank.
PVC foam or rubber matting is a denser coverage mat that lies flat on the ground with no need to peg. The greater coverage gives a softer feel underfoot than the meshing mats but is not as effective when it comes to dirt falling through, but can be easily swept. The softer feel makes it marginally less durable on very hard surfaces. They are available in three different colours: Green, Blue, and Grey.
Another factor to consider when choosing a mat is the weight. Weights may vary slightly between different brands but generally the Synthetic Mesh style will be lighter than the dense Foam / Rubber matting. Weights for our 4 metre mats are shown below:
