I have seen these on a Columbus last year at Goshen, the gentleman seemed to say that they helped increase mileage, Airtab: Aerodynamic fuel savers for truck, tractor, trailer, bus, RV

Sorry yes...talking about the ones that go on the roof of your truck...
And as far as bugs go...I hope it helps as I just pick up one on "kijiji " for 20 bucks!
Hoping it helps on the mileage as we'll! :-)

Put them up both sides and across the top on our 08 Flagstaff 831RLSS and it did significantly stabilize it when semi's passed.

I have seen those on passing 18 wheelers, always wondered if they worked or just snake oil?
Are they expensive? Links?

Sye posted the link and IIRC they cost me $3.50 ea and they install 4" on center. Can't remember how many I bought, but I went up both sides and across the top. They do work for stabilizing on the road, also a heck of a conversation pc in campgrounds.
