Bunk end covers

Keep the camper cooler in the summer and warmer in the colder months. Also the kids sleep longer because it darkens up the trailer!!

I just might have to get some of these. We camped the third week of October in southern MN where first night we had a low of 29 deg. F. I was surprised at how warm the heater DIDN'T keep us on the bunk ends. I mean, it was certainly warmer than outside, but the instant the heater shut off you'd feel the cold pressing in. Plus, we had burned up the whole tank of prop by dinner second night (whereupon we promptly hightailed it to a hotel). Learn the hard way, I guess...

Well worth the cost. Plus Bob is a great guy to deal with. Get the high wind bunk end covers. We used them all the time over the 9 yrs we had the PUP. Keeps you warmer in the winter and cooler with the a/c running. An added bonus is you can sleep in later because it stays darker inside.

I've heard cutting reflectix panels to fit the window openings will help insulate the ends as well. I've cut some covers for the glass windows for storage and plan to cut some for the bunk ends (eventually). We're still new to this but I've purchased and used the "gizmos" and think they're great also. They were super folks to deal with as well.

We did this to our last pup and it really did help we camped in Nebraska and Colorado even when it was below freezing and stayed warm.
I also lined the bunk plywood under the mattresses with the reflectix. It helps.

the bunk end cover were great
