The reason is to protect the slides on my 5er from snow and rain and makes sure I don't have any leaks. Now I live in my 38' 5er.

And yes all I would have to do is pull off the tarps roll them up and call it a day! Super Easy!

Forgot make sure you put a few drops of super clue on the back of the velcro that is attached to the tarp to make sure it does not come off!

I could not climb a ladder that many times to get them up and down. Great DIY solution but I can't see it being practical for a highly mobile rig.

Or use non-sticky back velcro and sew it on. The sticky back velcro will peel off the tarps and it seems that super glue wouldn't hold as it's not flexible. That's what I did on my home made PUG's.

I used That 3M spray Bonding glue. It will work with Polypropylene. That is what the tarps are made of. Cost 12 bux a can at Home Depot.
