that's good to know, frederick, as my neighbours mainly use theirs on a lawn-type setting. i felt badly when i noticed it breaking down, because i was the one who purchased theirs at wally world for them...but it is almost always unprotected from the sun in the position they have it, so i am assuming the UV light
is speeding the breakdown along.
if anyone is looking for a mat, go to www.rvawningmats.com
to check out some excellent sales..although some models, as i have previously said, are out of stock. for example, there are 9 x 12 mats on sale for 25.00 and some for 28.00 marked down from 89.99!!
...hey, christmas IS coming!
