Only my opinion, but breathable groundsheets are a total waste of money. After a couple of days the grass grows through them and, it the ground is at all damp, you even get wormcasts sprouting through. I think nothing is better. I always use a real groundsheet and, yes, the grass goes yellow after a week. But it never lasts long and soon greens up again. [There, that will get all the open-toed sandal brigage banging on their environmental drums.] If you are detemined to get a breathable groundsheet, try mail order - www.towsure.com and follow the link to caravanning - groundsheets.

Hello Paul. Bolon is a subsidiary of Iasabella Awnings. They sell it at Barrons at Chorley.I wanted a particular colour which Barrons didn't have in stock, so thy ordered it from Isabella: delivered direct to my address.

Paul. Take no notice of zbungle. On busy sites the ground would soon be covered in large brown patches if everyone had his selfish attitude to groundsheets.

And no Mr zbungle I am not an open-toed sandal wearing environmentalist, just some one with a bit of consideration for others!

If your pitch is covered in a large brown patch, just put your awning there, put down a plastic groundsheet and, hey presto, everybody is happy (with the possible exception of Mr Miller and his green wellies).

I belong to both ;-) When I go onto a site to camp, i.e. erect a tent and sleep in it, you will find that there are a lot of us with the tendency to put down solid, non-breathable ground sheets. After all, would you want to put your airbed onto damp grass and wormcasts? Get up in the morning and stand in a puddle? Funny, I don't recall the world coming to an end or remember seeing too many campsites with no grass or only bare, brown patches. If you have a bedroom annexe to your caravan awning are you expected to rip out the solid groundsheet and replace it with Bolon? I think not.

No, on occasions, just leave them lifted for the day to let the ground recover.

Sorry Paul we seem to have hijacked your thread.

Hi Paul - I know you only wanted to know where to get a suitable groundsheet from, hence the apology for the hijack.

Just to conclude this, I have spoken to the Caravan Club today. Their policy is that if you use waterproof groundsheets in your awning you must lift them regularly to let the ground recover. If you do not the wardens are likely to reprimand you.

The Caravan Club have published articles about this in the past.
