I have a 2018 CrossRoads Sunset Trail. I just recently found this group in my attempt to find out what ‘Extreme Weather Package’ actually means. The RV has a sticker that states it has it. I live full-time in the RV. I just recently relocated from Texas to Kansas. Everyone here is telling me I need to skirt the RV for the winter. I bought a heated hose, but am finding RV skirting out of my price range and installation expertise. What’s your opinions on skirting or not? The last quote I received was $2,600 including installation but booked until Feb 2021. ��
What is the average winter temperature in Kansas? That will determine if you want to close it in. A cheaper way is to put hay bales under instead.
Do not use hay bales!!
That is like welcome mat for all sorts of unwelcome critters to join you for the winter. Not to mention once they're wet the inside underneath the rv will be a huge penecillin factory.
The 2" rigid foam would most likely be your best cheapest alternative.
I agree with the rigid foam, backed by cheap plywood. I bet there's a few You tube videos on the subject.. you can do it in a day, and it will save you more than the cost of materials in a short time.
The Extreme Weather Package will only help a little. Your situation requires much more.
