This is a similar tent carpet and awning flooring to the Olpro but thought it deserved some attention. It comes in more sizes and different colours are available as well.
The MP Brands Essentials Weatherproof Awning Carpet packs a lot of qualities in to this carpet and is why we had to give it a try.
The material is made from a breathable eco friendly tightly woven material that is soft to walk on, and prevents bugs from getting through this was our experience of a week long camping trip where we used a smallest size the 2.5 m x 2.5 m to cover our awning floor. After trying a number of carpets, we realised that although it says it is weatherproof, it is not waterproof.
The carpet itself is rot and weather proof as well as UV stabilised. To the edges of the carpet are allow eyelets which allows you to secure your carpet down. I find this a very helpful feature so that you don’t need to use heavy items to hold it down, instead you can connect to your inner tent or peg it down if using it as an awning carpet. It is easy to clean and packs away easily for our car camping adventures inside its carry bag.
The variety of sizes and colours make it suitable for a range of camping activities, there is anthricate and grey an earthy colour, plum and grey, blue or green and grey, so something for everyone to suit the inside of their awning or tent.
It also comes in a fantastic array of sizes;
250 x 250cm, 250 x 300cm, 250 x 350cm, 250 x 400cm, 250 x 450cm, 250 x 500cm, 250 x 550cm, 250 x 600cm, 250 x 650cm, 250 x 700cm and 250 x 750cm so whatever size you need, you should be covered well.

Conclusion & where to buy
As long as you have your own ground sheet to keep it dry the MP Brands Essentials Weatherproof Awning Carpet is a very worthwhile purchase. Soft to the touch, tightly woven, rot proof and also has the ability to be fastened at each end of the carpet.
It is not much different to the Olpro we also tested but thought it was worth a mention due to the other colours that are available and the few extra sizes.
