Traditionally, RVers skirt their RVs in one of two ways:
1. An installable, often custom made, and always expensive drape skirt, usually made of PVC or canvas. This approach requires drilling into the RV itself to secure snaps in place, and when skirting the skirt must be meticulously snapped to the RV and then staked into the ground or weighted down. These skirts don’t have insulating properties like AirSkirts does.
2. A homemade solution, usually achieved by purchasing housing insulation boards, cutting them to size, and then finding a way to adhere them to the RV itself. This DIY method can be attractive because of a relatively lower cost but is extremely time consuming and must be repeated each year. In our estimates AirSkirts exceeds the value of a DIY solution in just a few seasons and saves many hours of labor (when you could be hanging out in your camper and enjoying yourself instead. Although this method offers more insulation than a standard drape skirt it offers nowhere near the insulating properties of AirSkirts.
So, what makes AirSkirts better than these traditional options?
– Less expensive than a custom drape style skirt
– Saves more energy and provides better insulation than other optiopns
– Far more attractive than Styrofoam skirts. In fact, some campgrounds disallow skirts in the summer, but allow AirSkirt simply because it’s not an eyesore.
– Pays itself off compared to either a drape or DIY approach. Less expensive than a drape, AirSkirts is the obvious choice for anyone considering a purchasing a skirt. Year over year, AirSkirts also beats out the DIY solution (as our customers will attest) in terms of cost, not to mention the many hours of manual labor, adjustments, and tinkering that go along with a DIY solution.
