Ground sheet

Post by rgermain on Fri Mar 23, 2018 11:29 am

Has anyone found a really good ground sheet that can be used outside their Motorhome when parked up? If so where did you get it from.

Just planning ahead for our annual trip to France and sandy beach, but could also be a wet muddy pitch!

Thinking of one that can easily be washed down and try and keep the dog dry and etc.

We've used the same Aldi breathable groundsheet for 3 seasons now, wouldn't be without it.

Me too had them for a while now price wise difficult to beat
Great for most types of ground except a muddy one as it will come through so I always carry a plain plastic one as well, only used it once though a couple of years ago at Peterborough (those who went will know what I mean) It takes very little room and has come in handy for use on a couple of occasions (non awning Ground sheet use)

I pre-ordered 2 groundsheets late Friday evening and they turned up at my door mid Monday morning. Now that takes some beating! smile!

Well done Aldi, saying that my wife went into our local Aldi store to get some Lamb for Easter and said they had groundsheets piled high.

Hi,
The only problem with breathable groundsheets is that muck and mud get lodged in them and they are awkward to clean. We used to put down a thin disposable plastic sheet like the decorating ones which can be disposed of at the end of the week, you can put a mat or groundsheet on top.

But if you put plastic sheet down first on grass you then kill the grass the point of "breathable" on grass is so air gets to the grass and it can breathe you will kill it if left plastic down for more than a couple of days as evidenced by the morons on sites who dont killing the pitch for others because the wardens cannot use it again for several weeks until the regrassed seed is established.
We went over to Isle of W last September on a commercial site and a beautiful site but they had over 30 grass pitches they couldn't use because of groundsheets left down
Honest not having a go at you Chris sorry for the rant

The point of a ground sheet is to allow you to step out without getting wet or muddy feet, the porous oned allow all the gunge through and are a waste of time. We have been campers for over 40 years and all of our tents came with a non porous groundsheet. You (and the site owners) are supposed to ensure that the next camper does not pitch in the same spot, difficult to do,
