Help Keep Your Travel Trailer Warm With Some Skirting
The travel trailer floor is one the major sources of heat loss at those low ambient temperatures. The insulated and enclosed underbelly of the trailer is usually the best fix to the problem. It is worth mentioning that every camper such as motor home, fifth wheel or travel trailer can to a large extent be protected from heat loss by skirting.
It is worth mentioning that there are several kinds of RV skirts, the rigid ones which are installed in stationary mobile homes which are permanently parked on the campgrounds and the highly popular flexible and weather resistant vinyl panels which are used to wrap the bottom camper. The heavy duty skirting come in quite handy all year round if you live in harsh climates where the travel trailer may be exposed to cold and hard winds, when choosing material for the skirting , it is important to get a material that wont fray at the edges and be tear resistant.
Vinyl materials are ideal for use because they can easily be cut and folded around the pipes, hitches as well as steps. They are also quite easy to remove and fit when required. During the winter, skirting does prevent cold air flows from infiltrating the area under the travel trailer floor: this does minimize instances of heat exchange. During the summer, the skirting does help to keep the camper relatively cool during the hot summer days.
