No matter which state you live in, a skirt can protect your investment from the elements and your wallet from exorbitant fuel costs associated with heating and cooling. Yes, even in the south. The space under your home is prone to allowing heat escape (and cold air to come in), so all homes will see a marked improvement during colder months.
If you live in an area where pipes can freeze, insulated tiny home skirting or insulated RV skirting can prevent your pipes from freezing and bursting during cold weather and save money on fuel to heat. Our customers tell us they save at least 50% on propane bills.
But, skirting can do more than save quite a bit on energy costs. The same insulated skirting for winter can also be used year-round. Just as heat escapes through your floor during the winter, air conditioning escapes during the summer. So, leave your skirting on year-round for maximum energy efficiency. Our non-insulated wind skirt also protects your investment from the wind, sun, and more in the summer. As a bonus, the underpinning provides extra storage for your larger outdoor toys without looking cluttered.
We recommend scheduling an installation in warmer months to beat the rush and avoid weather delays.
We can make custom RV skirting and tiny home skirting for you anytime. We produce them here in the USA all year long! March-July is the best time for the quickest RV skirt because it's warm, so there isn't a rush of families trying to get and stay warm for winter camping. Our peak season is August-February, especially when the temperatures dip. During the winter months, EVERYONE wants a skirt (and wants it NOW)! Unfortunately, sometimes the pipes are already frozen at that time of the year with no way to unthaw them except wait for warmer temperatures.
We also cannot install The R-Skirt in the rain or heavy snow. So, unfortunately, your RV and tiny home skirting install date will have to be rescheduled in case of inclement weather. So avoid the rush and order early!
Honestly, this is a question that only you can answer! But, here are a few things to think about.
Go with the DIY skirting kit if you are in a time crunch, out of our service radius, and capable of basic handyman skills. We created The R-Skirt Skirting System to be installed using only basic tools that you have around the house. We've also created a step-by-step installation guide to help. You can find that here: https://youtu.be/BRP4oe_hyL4?si=NU5kiaKsLDrP_riP
Tools required (not included): Paper towels, a pencil, scissors, a straight edge, and a screw gun.
If you'd prefer to have it installed, we're happy to help or connect you with someone who can. Unfortunately, during our peak season, we have limited installation availability from August to February. However, we will do everything we can to accommodate your needs.
**Installation options are available only to customers who visit us in Akron, Indiana, or who live within a 200-mile radius.**
The cost for 5th wheel skirting is typically higher than its travel trailer skirting or camper skirting counterparts simply because of the size. A 5th wheel is larger, and the actual fifth wheel panel is a lot of material (25′ x 10′). This panel covers the entire hitch section of your 5th wheel unit. We highly recommend enclosing the hitch area for maximum efficacy because an exposed hitch cools down the entire frame of your camper.
We don't make our skirts super tight because they need to be a little loose. Skirting material can shrink and stretch depending on the weather so it needs to stay flexible throughout the season changes.
If you didn't receive enough panels, one of two things happened. Either something went wrong during the measurement process, or we've made a mistake. We are all human.
Please give us a call at 574-402-0055, and if we didn't send you the correct number of panels you ordered, we apologize and will ship the missing panel immediately at no additional cost to you!
However, if you provided us with an incorrect measurement, you will have the option to purchase the additional panels at retail cost (plus the cost of shipping).
We take extreme care in properly manufacturing and packaging our products for shipment. If merchandise is damaged or lost by the transportation companies, you can refer to the "Damaged or Lost Orders" section in our TERMS & CONDITIONS.
Yes, we are real! We've been around since 2017 and have countless happy customers.
Our tiny living community is important to us. We understand that many of you are lineman, travel nurses and other transient workers with LONG hours, six days a week. We also know that travel days for RV families often don't follow a predictable schedule. So we try to answer the phone when you call, because who knows what the rest of your day looks like and phone tag wears out quickly for everyone.
We are also a homeschooling family of five with a family-owned and operated business, and we are always on the go. Sometimes, we travel to install skirting!
We transitioned from a standard office phone to our cell phone years ago to facilitate and make communication smoother. Cell phones allow us to answer faster and shorten response times.
And, in the ever-changing world of cell phone technology, it seems that more and more people prefer to just text. So, to make communication easy for all walks of life and all schedules, we offer both texting and phone call options (on our cell phones).
We're more than just business owners. We are a family of five that homeschool when we are not manufacturing and installing skirting. Sometimes we aren't immediately by our phones, but we promise to return your call promptly.
If you're in a hurry, texting us at 574-402-0055 will often get a quicker response. We've created this website as a source of information to answer many of your questions. We appreciate your interest and are more than happy to answer any questions you might have. In the meantime, please check out the individual product pages and our other available resources.
We usually require 2-3 weeks of processing time, but it can be longer during our busy season (August-February). You will be notified when your skirting and DIY skirting install kit ship. If you are scheduled for an install, we stay in contact to plan and provide updates for the expected time of our arrival.
Unfortunately, we can't say exactly until the installation process is complete.
We currently offer 8′ sections, and those may need to be cut down (custom to your trailer). When it is in storage, the non-insulated RV wind skirt will fold up and fit into a 20x20x20 size box – even for a larger fifth wheel. The insulated RV skirting fits in two 25x25x25 size boxes for a larger 5th wheel.
