On this one, the bottom will just have grommets to secure it. I'm sure if I did another, I might would do buckles. Some like the plastic shrouds, I just don't care for them. Don't like the looks of them. I have seen the plastic shrouds trimmed out for a Trail-Air, but then it defeats the purpose. I guess I'm in the small percentage of people that likes things that most don't. I love projects like this anyway. One off projects make good conversation pieces in a campground. One of my favorite things to do is compare notes and projects with other campers. You always find some sort of one off custom item somebody has made, usually better than a big manufacturer. Kind of like my daughters gooseneck trailer for her power wheels (in my photo album). Nobody made one, and I knew she'd want a trailer like dad's. It's got a lot of attention in some campgrounds and struck up plenty of questions and conversations. Always makes you feel good when you can say, I made that.

At least in Heaven, RVs will be perfect, and I won't have to keep fixing them.
