    These are like the high wind Gizmos without the straps over the top. In four years of pretty high winds, I've never needed to add the straps, any windier conditions and we would not be camping.

    Here's the link to the google doc explaining how I made them. These and the Reflectix are the best thing we've done for our camper next to buying it.

    How serendipitous! I basically am doing the exact same thing, down to the same brand of space blanket [:D]
    I have all of the materials ready to go, except for the camper, which is in storage until next weekend.

    I'll see if I can come up with something less messy to adhere the velcro, as I was going to use Gorilla Glue, too.

    Maybe knowing it is messy will help. Maybe the underside of your roof will be easier to do. Make sure you use water and clamps. I used scrap baseboards to hold sections of the velcro with the clamps. I did it in small sections at a time.

    That is cool you are set to go. Great minds think a like! Please share how it goes.

    BTW are you on the popup campers owners FB page or the popup modificatios page? Both great group of people. I've learned, shared, smiled, and laughed with these groups.

    That's OK that you aren't on FB. If you do join sometime, you must check out the two groups I mentioned.

    I'm looking forward to seeing your final product.

    I checked out your project....the design looks "vaguely" familiar. (LOL...sorry, I couldn't resist!)

    I love DIY, that's what got PUGS started. And I appreciate that you mentioned us in your google doc :>)

    Cheers,

    I'm glad you chimed in. You all have a FANTASTIC product (much better than my final result) and I have never heard anyone say anything bad about your customer service. The best bar none. This was just something I could do and wanted to do for our PUP.

    Ya all keep up the good work!!!
