Imagine being surrounded by nature's beauty in the great outdoors, wanting to seamlessly extend your caravan's living space. Annex mats, also known as camping mats, are crucial in achieving this vision, whether for a weekend getaway or an epic road trip. 

Finding the perfect mat is vital for crafting a comfortable outdoor haven. It should offer aesthetic appeal and practicality in keeping your outdoor area clean and tidy, while providing comfort underfoot on the underlying grass and durability for various weather conditions.

Rot-proof rubber mats can often be an excellent choice for this purpose, especially when parked at caravan parks.

Understanding Your Caravan Awning

Accurately measuring your caravan's awning is essential for several reasons, especially when it comes to finding the right size mat for beneath the awning or inside your annexe. Annexe mats are an excellent ground cover when you're after something durable and comfortable underfoot.

Proper Fit

A properly sized awning will ensure you get a mat that fits perfectly beneath. Incorrect measurements may lead to gaps between your flooring and annexe walls. Similarly, the right size annex mat, also known as caravan annex floor or annex flooring, is vital for a comfortable outdoor space, complementing your set up and providing a dirt-free surface. Ensuring a seamless fit between the awning and annex matting is ideal for a better camping experience.


The size of the awning directly impacts its functionality, affecting the outdoor space available. An awning maximises your outdoor living space, offering a comfortable area for dining, relaxing, or entertaining guests. Additionally, it accommodates accessories like chairs, tables, and lighting fixtures, enhancing your overall camping experience. Properly sized caravan annexe flooring or matting can further elevate comfort and stability in your outdoor setup.

Compatibility with Annex Matting

Annex mats are designed to fit specific awning sizes, catering to the needs of most caravans. Accurate measurement of your awning ensures you can select the appropriate size annex mat to complement it. A properly sized annex mat, typically made from extremely durable and breathable fabric, offers a clean and level surface for outdoor activities. It also helps prevent dirt, mud, and debris from being tracked into the caravan, keeping the interior clean and tidy.
