Looking to order Popup gizmos fpr.my 2015 233s. I had Super high wind for my popup. But now am thinking about saving a $125 and going with standard

I bought the super high wind set; and to be honest, I've never camped in the kind of wind that would require such fastening.

I don't use the bungee cords. I put the PUG on the bunk end and use the clamps and just the cords dangle.

Save the money and put it toward something you'll get better enjoyment out of...such as

If you do any beach camping I would recommend the super high wind set, we go to Myrtle Beach several times a year and use them there because of the high winds.

I had the original version PUGs with only the one bungee cord on the end. They worked great but putting on all those clamps was a bit of a nuisance to setup and remove. Definitely a 2 person job. I used 5 clamps per edge, so 15 per bunk door. Several of the clamps busted in the 2 years when had them on our Roo, but they gave me plenty of spares.

Thinking going with the standard with the velcro. I always used the clips on my SHW ones for the pop up anyways.
Save my $125 so I am ordering a Air lift 1000 suspension for the Ram only $88. So still ahead

Is the only difference in the standard, high wind and the super high wind the number of the bungee cords used on them? Otherwise, the material is the same on all of them?

after what is it... 4 years of PUP/Hybrid ownership I just ordered my first set of Gizmo's. I went with the one bungee high wind setup. I'll put them to use over the 4th weekend.

You should be amazed at the efficiency of the gizmos. Night and day difference - especially down here in Texas during the summer months.

Gizmos along with the reflectix also create a darker sleeping environment during the morning hours.

Enjoy!!!
