Pop-up Gizmo's

What's the verdict? Do they work? Are they worth it? I'm looking into getting a pair for my X23B but wanted some feed back on someone who has them.....Thank you!

We are on our second set. First set was for our popup. When we got our hybrid, the first thing we bought was a new set of Gizmos.

Besides helping with the temp inside your trailer, they also keep your canvas ends clean from tree sap and bird poop

We use 9x12 Tarps over the tent bed ends on my OFF-ROAD POPUP. Works very well.


GSMNP ELKMONT CAMP

The tarps are held in place using stretch ropes.

We get about three use before the SUN does its thing on the tarps. The cost is very low picking up the tarps from Lowes or WALMART...

We can also change colors of the tarps when we want to haha... Green-Brown-Blue or Silver. I like Blue as that is looks neat with the Startcrafy trailer. Momabear likes the Silver....

I bought mine almost 2 years ago and always use them and they work in hot and cold weather. Yes I would buy them again.

I use heavy duty space blankets with sewn edges, foil on one side, ( foil side up in most cases) that I clip on with those heavy duty black paper clips you find in use in offices. I have been in wind, rain, and hail storms and only had one or two clips come off on occasion. PUGS are expensive. I went for the cheaper solution and have had great success.

The best investment you will make for your hybrid....everything is more efficient A/C in the summer and Heat in the winter...Do yourself a favor and pay the extra $$$ and purchase the Super High Wind sets!!

Been wondering about the feasibility of this...

Just used our AC for the first time and I can see where it could use some help during the day.

Now to figure out which blanket to get...don't suppose you recall the brand you have?

Thanks!
