Interlocking Floor Matting

Postby CampGrrlz » Thu Jan 22, 2009 2:18 pm

Yet another question ... I see the click-together matting comes with and without holes.

I have no idea which to choose ... I can see advantages in both. Decisions, decisions ...

With the holey ones (apart from the odd prayer ;)) I visualise dirt falling through but I also see dirt working its way up.

With the plain ones, I'm imagining sliding on a tarp/shadecloth undermat.

Or, would you use just the click-together thingies and no shadecloth/tarp?

Any advice from users most welcome :grin:

I have both, not sure how that came to be, but from memory i think they ran out of stock of the holey ones and we bought flat ones. we use the flat ones in the sleeping area of our CT and the holey ones out in the "living" area. If camping on grass i dont bother laying down the mess floor i just install the click together floor and done. If on sand, then the mess goes down the the click floor over the top. Never had dirt come up, not that ive noticed, the plus however to having the holey ones in the "working" areas if for spills and other accidents, much easier for clen ups.

I have some of the holey ones and i got those due to the fact they looked better not to slip on if it got wet. I also use a couple in my kitchen so i know they dont get slippy when wet. I got them so my dog wouldn't put holes in the bottom of my tent with her nails plus to add a better floor for it anyway.
I was told by someone on here that they can be slippy when wet, but i think it's the flat ones that would be more than the holey ones. I got mine in kmart on special.

we run with the holey ones with shade cloth under. it has been a great choice for the sand camping we do.
