Which kinds of protective mats can I put under the flat-jack?

Answer: on normal campings you can use a simple ultra lightweight foam mat (the ones you use for doing your garden work on your knees), or a floor mat. In cases you are outside the campings and more adventurous, like in the mountains, in the fjords in Norway, in the forest, etc. we advise to use a protective mat which is more thick, like a carpet tile or even a classic coconut mat (without holes) or a wooden or metal plate under the flat-jack for extra protection against tree roots in the forest, stones, rocks, etc. Always first remove any big stones, etc. before you put up your recreational vehicle and use your experienced camper brains to decide whether the place is suitable for using your flat-jack.

Answer: yes, you can stand with your flat-jack directly on small river stones and gravel campings. The flat-jack material is polyurethane, which is resistant to small river stones and gravel. Even with a heavy camper of 7500 kgs you can use the flat-jacks on these gravel campings. But we always advise our clients to prevent the flat-jack from a leak caused by too sharp stones, by putting a protective mat (floor mat or carpet tile) under the flat-jack. Between the stones there could be a piece of glass or a tent herring, so it is always wise to protect your flat-jack.
