Many ideas and possible solutions, i think buyers are pretty savvy when it comes to major purchases. If a mfg. wants to be a leader in its class, it needs to be on the forefront of all things considering. You will select a company for many reasons, not just price,
and many ordering or lot purchasing new equipment are financing, and request the majority of options available. Like a mortgage,
At this price point, a $1000.00 for protective hard covers will mean little in the monthly payment amount. Could only help the used resale value.

I wish my 2013 21SS had rain skirts. My bunk ends were replaced due to continued leaking after "seasoning." Now with the new bunks even more water comes in. It seems to be from the corners where the fabric is bunched up and a fixed to the doors. Surface tension helps the water roll around the curve rather then on downward. Skirting would help prevent that.

The 2 or 3 dabs of silicone used by the manufacturer did not consistently hold the channel covers in place. I replaced those and added more as well as added screws at each end (that didn't already have them).

I also ran a bead of silicone around the outside (between canvas and door).

Yeah, I'm wearing a belt with my suspenders - but we've been through some real downpours in CO and KS. No leaks. (Had a couple before I overdid the fix.)

This isn't "their forum." Scroll to the bottom and you'll see the disclaimer:

Now that being said, you'd think that a company that wanted to be progressive and customer-centered would be keeping tabs, but.... NO!
