Skirting around travel trailer

I plan on leaving my 29 foot travel trailer in place in the woods and wonder how I should put skirting around it to keep critters out? Any Ideas? I would like it to look nice and be easily removed if I would want to go somewhere someday!

thanks
Steve

Another thing I've seen is people skirting them with lattice. Some of which is a tighter weave lattice...which would at least keep out the bigger critters.

If you're into a rustic look, a neighbour skirted in with plywood painted black and vinyl 2" lattice tacked onto it. It gives giving full coverage and a good appearance. He installed hinged access doors with magnetic spring cabinet locks. Looks pretty good actually.

... not spend hundreds on 75 running feet of skirting that looks nice and can be easily removed? hmmm, that will be a trick since you'll spend a couple hundred on just framing.

I've been toying with the idea of building a series of 8' frames of electical conduit or PVC pipe and panels of grommeted canvas drop cloth laced nautical style over it. Both take paint well, would be portable and would look quite unique.

Just finished skirting ours. I used vinyl siding and "J" channel. Got it at the local lumberyard on clearance 80% off...worked great, easy to remove, and setup. basically just stops the winds, not much insulation value... but it works....
