    Does anybody know of a supplier who could replace the Morocan mat shown below please?
    It’s 4.0m long x 2.4m wide and, as shown, is green.
    We bought it from a lady at the Cheshire show, Tabley, about 3 years ago but can't remember her name or company. :Doh:
    I’ve looked at www.morocanmatting.co.uk but I really don’t believe that its one of thiers, besides, being tight, I only paid about £60! :Wink:

    Thanks

    I know its an old thread but i bought our Morrocan matting from the Peterborough show 2 years ago and only really used it last winter in Spain . Just laid it out and find its disintegrating before my eyes . My previous matting lasted 6 years with much heavier usage it was the green rubbery stuff . Any reccomendations out there ???

    Had the same problem, the original one lasted a few years but the latest one only lasted a year. Will not be buying any more.

    We had a Morroccan mat that lasted about 8 years. We used it extensively at home and abroad. It was beginning to look a bit tatty but still had all it's colour, though obviously not as vibrant. We changed vans and gave it away a year or so ago and as far as I know it's still doing well.

    This year when we got our RV we bought a new mat at a motorhome show. What a disappointment. After being out in the sun for about two weeks. Nothing too hot, were talking Portugal in October, the mat quickly lost all it's colour. It also started breaking up.

    Our old mat was quite thick and could not be folded, but being foldable was a selling point, but this material that can be folded is just not robust enough.

    See for yourself.

    Here is the Mat, with all the colour gone.

    Check out the underside to get an idea of what it looked like before

    Same thing with ours , only a short time of use it was breaking up ..complained to the seller at the next show, which he remarked ..."nobody else has complained and he walked away "....grr it is as if they are a cheaper quality and brittle , at the time ours had only been used in the UK ..
    Definitely won't buy one from him again , very poor after sales service....

    Can anyone recommend a decent mat / seller

    Thanx Kath
