Where if you have the one that is on the outside it woud be easier to make sure it is all closed off.
Maybe I'm off base but if we get the M we are going to look at on next Tuesday that is the style I'm going to look at.
Has anybody tried the one on the outside and if so does it keep the heat out? From the pictures it apperars that is what Debbie is using.
The Outside Boots work fine. However, they are HEAVY - several pounds, and with a Solera, that's of primary importance. Also, If you've ever camped in inclement weather, it's no fun taking them off when they're frozen, or when it's raining, or when they're covered with ice or frost, and then having to stow them wet (mildew, you know). The inside ones weigh almost nothing, and can be put up from the inside in inclement weather, and can be taken down and stowed inside without having to go out into inclement weather.
The Reflective material REFLECTS heat away, whereas the boot absorbs it. They're inside, and if you go away from your camper for a while, you can lock your camper and not worry about someone using a five-finger discount and getting them. Yeah, I know you secure them over the door with straps, but some thieves will try to rip them loose anyway.
Just some considerations based on past experience!!
To each his own, I guess.
