Employing a patio mat outside sleeping areas can certainly offer assistance to a camper hoping for sterile conditions, but what happens when these mats need to be taken home? Anything from bugs to twigs can spill out of a rolled mat into an RV or automobile trunk, and this can be a headache to clean up.
The patio mat carry bag by Worldwide Merchandise
is the answer to this common problem. This carrying case can hold most standard rug sizes, including 9' x 12' patio mats, 2 piece mat sets (9' x 12' and 2' x 3') and 8' x 16' devices. The polyester fabric is durable enough to keep all types of dirt and moisture inside, while the entire contraption can be cleaned inside a washing machine upon the return home.
"I have two of these and [have] given some as gifts to fellow campers," wrote one reviewer on CampingWorld.com. "They are the best thing I have found to store the mat in for travel. I stow them inside my Lance truck camper or in the back seat. If the mat is full of sand or it is a little damp it is NO problem. Easy in, zip, no worries. Very nice indeed."
