It seems that the Flagstaffs use an aluminum strip whereas the Cedar Creeks use individual screws with washers.
I can't see OC's pics but the FR pics clearly do not show the skirt screwed to the bottom of the Frame as you describe. It only shows the skirt going to the top of the frame and you really can't see what's holding it. Maybe there has been a change to newer units??? No change to the Creeks which is the important part.
Edit: Maybe the frame is too thick to use
a screw strip with self tapping screws. Having to drill and then screw would add
significant cost. Just a thought.
