We used the PUGS, never went the blue tarp route. I've seen pics of one of our posters who did and I recall he covered the sides as well as the top.
Several posts about electric space heaters, yes!

I'm going to give the tarps a whirl in Oct and look into the pugs. I've got the space heaters after last Oct lol. Thanks for the info!

I bought the Pop-Up Gizmos and made some window "fillers" out of 1/8" Corroplast and covered those with the refletix. All six tuck in nicely between the mattresses when we fold up the bunk ends. We used them last January in a campground with hook-ups and used the furnace and stayed really comfortable all night. Haven't tried boondocking in the cold yet, although on our trip to the Eastern Sierras in July it got down to about 40 degress one night (only used the pugs then).

Bunk End Insulation

We have a Jayco X23F and live here in Florida so we don't have the cold but do have HEAT! We just got back from 14 days in a State park at Long Key and before we went I went to Lowes and purchased 3/4" Styrofoam insulation with the silver on one side. I then cut them to fit the inside of the ends and side of the bunks. When we set up I slid them in with the silver side facing the outside of the trailer. I also install Gizmos when we set up and between the foam and the Gizmos we could not believe the difference in how much cooler the trailer was. PLUS the extra benefit of less light in the morning so we slept later! If you face the silver side to the inside of the trailer it could possibly reflect heat back into the trailer.
