What do we know about-

Air-tabs. Another item that gets great reviews on their website. Now I will ask the real folks.
Thanks Mike

I don't know. I recently saw another post about this subject, So I went looking at what I could google and it seemed dated to me. Sounds great but the applications shown on "youtube" looked like an effort. Can you post a link?

I am missing something, who are the "real folks"? Is this something from a salesman?

Thanks for the link and the comment. The link, I will use, and the comment I will use to defend myself with the DW. LOL

You are available to defend me right?

Somewhat related: what about using a "trailer tail" that you see on the rear of semi trailers? They are suppose to save 7% fuel at 60-65 mph.

As someone who has been involved with aerodynamics all his life, I cannot envision any application of tabs on an existing MH that would be able to make any measurable difference in the aerodynamic qualities of a MH. When I say measurable, I also include highly technical laboratory measurements that could take place in a very controlled environment.


If you want to clean up the airflow around a MH, start by rounding off all the corners, and if you included a trailer tail, you might see a very, very small improvement.
