Looking to get popup gizmos for my 233s. Has anyone bought these ones? They are over a $100 cheaper than Bobs. Your thoughts , thank ypu.

Yep, that's PUG's ad on PUX's website and it's for their standard ones, which is what I've used for the past 8 years

When I had my hybrid, I used these on the bunk ends held on with spring clamps. Made a big difference in the inside temp. They may not be as good as the PUGS, but they worked and were a lot easier on the wallet.

We picked up a set of military grade Casualty Blankets for $30 that make a huge difference.....
With that said, I know a lot of folks that RAVE about Bobs work and service, and a set are in our future when the funds are available.

I got the space blankets for $8 or $9 a piece. I am looking for that 'bungee' stretchy cord to make my own without the spring clips on the tent. Haven't found it yet.....

USA SURVIVAL/ SPACE BLANKET GI

Check out the address above. Looks heavy duty. I started with the bungee cords and found them to be a pain in the butt. I used plastic clip from Lowes. They would clip to the bead and there was a mechanism that would ratchet the clip tight. They worked well and the assembly went quick.

those are expensive. you can get the same thing, at Cabelas, REI or Bass Pro for about $5 less.
or there are a number of internet dealers that sell them.
the average price is around $13.
