Grip mats

Hi everyone

Got a query

We've on the odd occasion got stuck when camped on grass, if I have no option but to pitch up on grass, i take all the appropriate precautions to make exiting the pitch as easy as possible. However, some pitches dont give you all the options, so I was contemplating, getting a pair of grip mats, my question is, have any of you used these and if yes, what is your opinion, are they good, great, or a waste of time and if it's a case of you get what you pay for, what's a good brand, thanks in advance.

Mike

There’s a fair amount of online advice/comments about using cut-down bread crates as ‘grip mats’.

Your local carpet retailer will let you have some old carpet samples foc, they're just as good as proper ones but you can use them on the floor of your m/h before needing them on wet grass etc. When you've used them and got them all grotty, easy and free to replace.

I bought sandladders from Tracmat as we were doing a year without hard standing. They were on offer. The times we needed to use them, they were outstanding.

 

They are what you pay for and they are heavier than most grip mats. But if you are spending time on wet or boggy ground, then they may be worth it. Prior to getting the mats, we got stuck twice in deep mud. A tow from a friendly Land Rover driver cost me £10 to charity and the other cost me £10 to a tractor driver.

 

Bread trays are a better solution if it's just wet grass.

I just cut four oblong pieces of plywood and painted them to stop them getting wet. Whenever I'm parked on wet grass I sit the vehicle on them. This stops the wheels making a slight dent in the grass which can be tricky to get out of.
