Actually, some of us do not want the light blocking of these PUGs and space blankets when we are camping. Some of us chose hybrids primarily because of the more open feel and the light that comes through the canvas. If they were something you could deploy only when needed then that would work. But I would not want something permanent. If we ever get PUGs it will only be for when we are facing temperature extremes.

I think FR/TJ Snuggles should make them almost like a tent rainfly option. Offer hooks or snaps in all 4 corners of the vinyl and you simply hook or unhook a pre-fit solar blanket on top. For most of us we would never even remove them.

I agree with you. We are moving in December need to be out of our house in September. So we will be living in ours for some time just looking for some thing to help with the cooler temps. We don't get much under 40 30 at night. Anything will help

PUGS and space blankets are items that can be deployed only when needed.

I think they were responding to the idea of these being built in as part of the camper.

Yes. Sorry. I should have been more clear. We're looking at getting some PUGs at some point in the future. But we're not clear yet when we would use them yet. When it is hot here in Denver we head to the mountains. And we really do like letting as much light in as possible. If we were regularly camping where it was hotter then I can see using them more often. But in the mornings I would probably want to remove them.

They only block the light coming through from the top/roof of the bed. Sides are still translucent. We flip our upside down when the weather gets cooler. Reflect the heat back down. Plus, added benefit. Pugs get the tree sap and bird droppings, not the canvas.

I am 37% vampire but I love they way they block light from the ceiling at sunrise. With the screens open I don't really notice a change in openness or light but it is sure nice to block that blaring light first thing in the morning.
