Cost Plus World Market and now Ikea sell smaller versions of the woven polypropylene. There are sizes from 4'x6' on up at Cost Plus. Ikea's is 6'x9'. They are light weight and easily cleaned. I also have the 9'x12' like itodday has. I have a couple and take the size based on need and destination. I also keep mine in a garbage bag if I don't have the opportunity to wash it before departure. I think there will be more available as their utility is discovered.

Most definitely, but heavy duty does not mean reusable unfortunately, and can't handle repeated use for long. We have a ton of fabric around here, it is just a matter of doing it.

I bought the 12'x9' from Walmart a year or so ago. It's very nice and I can fold it all the way out or partically as needed. Right after Christmas, I was able to pickup an artifical tree storage bag. It's canvas with a full length zipper. Mat fits inside perfectly with some space left over for the not-so EZ-Up fabric topper. Best thing since it was on the after Christmas sale table it only cost me $5.

That sounds perfect! I know what I will be looking for if I venture out for an "after Christmas" sale.

On our first "real" camping trip, we used a 6x9 polypropylene rug that just fit under our awning. Unfortunately, we were in an area that had a lot of foxtails so I had to confine our dog to the mat in order to keep him out of harm's way. Our daughter has the Aeroweave Breathable Mat from Camping World that was bigger, and much lighter, than ours which meant that everyone had space to sit without fighting the foxtails ... plus her dog had room to roam (and the Aeroweave was much easier to sweep off than ours). Bottom line, we're ditching the one we have and getting an Aeroweave that runs the length of our trailer.

Thanks to Leon's info about the mat underneath the swap table, I was able to find what I had been looking for for a long time. Ordered it through Fraserway, which was way cheaper then amazon.
