    Looking for suggestions. I just rebuilt my bunk and there was a strip of epdm that went over the hinge from the wood platform to the actual bunk, but that's like 3" above the hinge. Seems like if I use this in the winter it's going to let a bunch of cold air in and bugs any other time of the year. Is there any I can put directly over it?

    I also I noticed the bottom corners of the canvas were somewhat open to open air is there anything that can placed in those corners as well?

    I have attached pictures.

    Its cut big so it balloons out and doesn't get caught it the hinge. Covered by the mattress when the bunk is open.

    maybe if you posted year/make of hybrid, someone who owns the same brand could post pics of theirs.
    or put it in your sig line.

    I don’t have a hybrid but my first thought looking at the pics was “I’d just go buy a yard of white vinyl for $6-$7 and cover it”....then everybody weighed in with “mines covered with white vinyl”. Sooooo....

    Looks no different than my Jayco. Ours has Velcro to hold the strip in place. I'd do what "emoney" said. In the corners, we put a piece of folded up old towel to keep the draft and bugs out. Also throw a dryer sheet in with the towel.

    I'll bite also lol...mine has what looks to be a piece of vinyl or leather that's screwed on to make a bridge over the connection.the bunk canvas should have enough material to cover the side opening(gap) when you set up.hope this helps
