Ready for winter

Here is a couple pictures (if I did it correct) of our 38 GK parked in Colorado for the winter with a temporary skirting to help stop the wind under the camper. We had a couple nights that were -5 and -8 degrees last week and the camper was more than comfortable. Winter views out in the woods each morning are wonderful. Been feeding 40+ wild turkeys and watching 25+ deer. Sure beats city life and all the traffic in Colorado Springs.

Really wish we could go south and enjoy warm weather. But my better half needs to work to support my retirement. Ha We will travel 4-5 times next summer.

Jhardin,
Two questions, first where are you? Second, more details on your skirting?

We're headed up to Fruita in two weeks to stay the winter and will likely skirt ours during that stint.

LWG - where do you stay in Fruita all winter??


JHardin, what is the material you used - it looks like I can see through it.

Were 15 miles south of Colorado Springs. I bought the SureTuf Polycarbinte at Home depot they also had the bottom track. I wanted to be able to move the camper and take down the skirting. I screwed it together with self tapping screws then I just put the black foam pipe wrap along the top so it was not attached to my Redwood or it would not scratch it. I'll try to attach a couple close up pictures for you. We drilled through the poly and attached eyebolts and just used bungee straps to attach it to the frame and pull it against the Redwood body. We have had 40 mph winds and it is holding tight against the body and working great. We can take it down in probably 45 minutes to move.

Atom, you can kind of see through it. We got this black color to match the bottom of our RW. So far it is working great and I like the looks when you drive up to the camper.

It is lighter and more pliable but just like the corrugated plastic you used to put up on the roof of a deck etc. Very nice to install and does good in severe cold weather
