Suggestions on Mat in Shower/Toilet on E19

We have an Escape 19 and was wondering what others may do for a mat in to toilet/shower room. After using the shower it certainly takes some time to dry and we repeatedly wipe and squegee the floor. Anyone have any ideas on some type of mat on the floor that may not get soaked and allow water to get to the drain?

I've seen many people purchase a wooden slatted floor rack that they take out while showering, then put in place afterwards. I think some are made of bamboo and some of teak. You might check walmart, bed bath and beyond, amazon, etc.

I leave mine in all the time except for cleaning the floor. Something like this allows dirt and water to escape and the top remains dry.

That's a beauty Jim. Where did you get it? I like the rounded corners and smoothness of it.

We use that one in our 21 also. Fits perfectly. don't know if it would fit a 19 bath though.

That one is 24x18 @ Amazon, really need a 24x20 to fit the floor in the E21 wall to wall. But it keeps your feet clean and dry. I suggest you buy extra screw plastic feet to make it really sturdy.

We use 6 squares of Dri-Dek flooring but take it out to shower. In our case it is to keep the floor from getting scratched up in normal use which is what happened to our previous trailer. It's a wee bit uncomfortable bare foot if such things bother you, has a bumpy surface for grip I guess. Cut to fit with a razor knife.

We use the Duragrid Comfort tiles (Shower Mats | Locker Room Flooring). They're a bit easier on the feet than the regular Dri Dek tiles and easy to cut. We leave ours in all the time and I usually place paper towels underneath when we're not showering to catch the dirt, etc., from daily use.

wonder if the 24x18 would fit in a 5.0?

You measure twice and order once!
