I'm not sure they are made to be machine washed, but for the price, a new set every other year makes the inside look new again. I just hose mine off outside, let dry and reinstall. The agitator is what beats them up.

I am always willing to spend more money for something that lasts a long time, rather than spend less and have it go to the landfill. I think it was the way I was raised, but it really irks me all the disposable stuff we are offered as consumers. You all might have guessed this from my disdain of paper plates, and plastic cups and cutlery.

Lisa bought a couple rugs for inside years ago, that have been washed a few times, and are still in great form. I had given her a couple size parameters, and she found some almost perfect. One fits nice from the door along the dinette, the other in the aisle along the kitchen cabinets. We don't always use them, but most of the time we do, especially when wet outside, as we never take our footwear off when we come in unless muddy for some reason. (or when going to bed )

The Decorian 3-Piece RV Rug Set from Camping World is manufactured by Prest-o-fit Inc. If you care. So while some may be considered Camping World Crap, you can purchase Prest-o-fit Inc rugs from many different RV parts supply houses.., including Amazon and eBay. So, I wouldn't slam CW. YMMV

One of the reviews on CW for the rug says: Doesn't slide, hides dirt, easy to clean - just rinse off w/water.

Like Jim, I've never washed mine. Although at the Oregon Gathering the longest rug did soak up an entire dark beer, so outside it went, got hosed off, dried and reinstalled. No problemo.

In reality, is anything made today with the quality things were made years ago?

For several years, I have used the 2' x 6' runners sold at Costco for $9.99. They are washable. They last a few years, but eventually the latex back starts to crumble. Probably from drying them in the dryer. They are not sold on line (at least not at the time of this post).
For my 17B, they work well. I usually get the darker ones to hide what the kids and dog track inside.

I think that you've got a whole forum of Escape owners that feel that ETI builds a product that meets os surpasses our expectations! So yes, quality still means something.

What do you mean "no problemo", an entire dark beer was lost

I have difficulty calling CW merchandise "crap" especially when they have such a good refund policy.

Hi: Donna D... What a waste of good beer!!! As for hiding dirt just lift the edge and sweep under it!!! Alf

Ya - I didn't get a chance to wash ours - I shook them out when I cleaned up last and the binding pulled away .
