I purchased a roll of reflectix from home Depot and cut to size. To attach them I bought clips from a dollar store and tie them with rope underneath. Before using this we used to have to wipe up the water in the morning from the condensation. After, is totally dry. Amazing!

Your using reflectix on top in place of pugs? Interesting...hadn't heard of anyone trying that. Don't you end up with multiple pieces to get coverage?

I am using silver colored tarps attached with bungee cords. Trying to convince the wife that the PUGS are better. Can anyone provide some points for me to use in my presentation and cost validation? Thanks for any help you can provide.

RooVader: I bought it in a 4 foot x 25 foot roll. . The width was good for one bunk end so it was straightforward cutting. For the other larger bunk end I had to join two pcs in the middle. I used aluminum tape to join together. Also, reinforced all the edges with the tape.

i can tell you that others have tried using Reflectix, instead of PUGs or the generic all-weather blankets. this is from being on various Hybrid forums over the past 11 years.

after one strong wind gust, their Reflectix was in torn pieces. they don't have the strength to handle wind, like PUGs do.

We had a big wins storm last time out. No issues. I reinforced all the edges with aluminum (duct) tape. Maybe that helps.

I've read a here a few times that the PUGs must be removed from a Roo before folding up the bunk ends, and I'm wondering the reason why? I've just received and installed mine with the clips. Now I stood up the mattresses, turned on the fans, folded in the ends with the reflectix in the windows and the PUGs attached to the gutters above the beds. They seemed to fold in very easily. Granted I have not towed her with them on yet, but looks to be no problem.
Anyone else leaving them in place while turtled up and towing?

I believe there are some who are closing up with them on. I usually remove the PUG's so I can wipe ' em off prior to storage, checking for tree sap or bird poo. No reason why you couldn't close up with them on. I guess I would be careful if using the clips, , would not want the clips rubbing on any vinyl or canvas during traveling.
We are using the velcro along the bunk edge to secure the PUG, so I don't think the bunk end would close very well.
