Things We Love: CGear Original Sand Free RV Mat

We saw our first CGear Original Sand-Free RV mat during a camping trip to Shenandoah National Park. Our camping buddies had one — it worked great to keep the sand and dirt out of their camper — and they loved it.

It was time to replace the indoor/outdoor carpet we’d been using as an RV mat, so we did some research and decided that the Original CGear Sand-Free RV mat was just what we were looking for.

First, a little background. CGear developed the mat for the military as a safe landing spot for military and civilian helicopters. The CGear technology shielded against dust and grit in “unforgiveable” environments. According to CGear, the mats “turned dry, rugged ground into a smooth and stable landing spot.” The company adapted their technology to outdoors and have been selling their high-quality mats – and other sand-free products – directly to consumers.

So how does it work? The CGear Original Sand-Free RV Mat allows sand, dirt and fine particles through its high-density, double layer weave, but doesn’t allow that stuff back up. They’re water resistant and have sturdy d-rings, so you can stake them down. 

The RV mats are sized specifically to fit under standard sized awnings. We’ve been using ours for about a year, and love it. There is a monumental difference in the amount of sand and dirt that gets into the camper, and it’s easy to sweep off twigs and leaves. And it looks great!
