Same here RooVader.

I think there is a picture somewhere on the PUG site that shows the shorter panel draping nicely over the curve of the bunk end. The pics I posted show the same fit, so pretty sure that is the way they are meant to go. Kinda cool fit, as on our 233S the front bunk is a different size than the side and end bunks, and all three fit very well.

I know it has been said before, but what a great product being sold by a terrific guy with excellent customer service. Not sure I mentioned that when I ordered mine, he called me to make sure I was getting what I needed, saying 'With an order to Canada we just want to confirm details as we know it is a pain for you to send them back'. pretty cool!

We will be testing ours for the first time this weekend. Dog agility competition, which involves dry camping in an open treeless field with who knows how many dogs, bright sunny weather over 90 degrees predicted, and always the potential for very impressive plough winds off the Rockies. As we always say, 'What could possibly go wrong?'.

Cheers! HTH

Stu

Do you also have reflectix for the windows? They will make a huge improvement if you're baking in the sun. PUGS and reflectix go together like peanut butter and jelly.

Yup, did the Reflectix job last week. We will see how it goes. Hoping I am not starting a thread next week asking 'how big a generator do I need to run the A/C'. I have also installed additional 12v power points at each bunk for additional fans.

Ok, I feel dumb but still not sure I get it. When you say it curves nicely over the bunk end do you mean the closely spaced bungies are away from the camper and draped over the end of the bunk? In other words, add my Velcro to the side spaced further?

I will check the site...sorry, just feel like I am hearing both ways.

Nice photos of your setup!

I may do this also. I question the need to have a bungee cord sewn in so close to the velcro attachment area.

Yes to both questions RooVader. Pictures of my install on the third page of this thread might help.

Sorry for the confusion RooVader. If I look at the photo on the PUG website of the new SHWS pug, it appears that the narrow end is at the bunk end. We have ours opposite, sewed our velcro to the end with the wide distance between the bungee cords. Sounds like ours is the same as what Stu did to his.

X eleventy!
I'm surprised that I don't see many hybrids or popups here in Mi with the PUG's or reflectix. We're out camping for couple of days at Metamora Hadley sp. Just had a lady in an older Roo 233ss ask us what those silver things were for on our bunk ends!

I agree...I have never seen them in all my years of camping, yet those of us on this forum all sing their praises.

I did see a Sapphire IKSS Roo in my neighborhood last night on a walk. First one I have seen not on a dealers lot or in my driveway.
