Question about PUGs

I currently have a 2014 Rockwood Pop up and I have pop up gizmos for it. The issue I have is when I take them off to pack up thereís always moisture under them which means I have to try and dry it off with a rag or open up my pop up when I get home. I am trading the pop up in this Saturday for a 2018 Rockwood Roo 233s. I am debating if I should get PUGs for it but I donít want to have to open it up after each trip and let it dry. Does this happen to anyone else?

I have Pugs and moisture under them is common. I take them off as early as I can the day we're leaving to help dry them out.

I would buy another set for your 233S. They're a great investment.

We opened our PuP after every trip, anyway. Just living in it creates moisture inside, so opening it up and airing it out is pretty much a must.

The PUGs make camping much more enjoyable.

We use the PUGS we bought for our 2004 Coleman Utah PUP. They fit fine on our second Roo.

I’ll just have to get one more for the 3rd bunk. I know one of my Rockwood pop up bunks is 70x80 and all the Roos are 60 x 80 but I’m sure it will still fit.

If you contact Bob Pitney at Pop up Gizmos I think you'll find they have the measurements for your bunk.

I have a 2017 233s, and I found that the standard space blankets are just about perfectly sized for the three bunks. Just something to consider if wanna save a few bucks.

As for the moisture, I just try to take mine off early in the morning before leaving or the night before. Iím in Florida, so the temperature benefit for me is really just during the day. Cold is not a very big problem here.

When itís hot during the day, these things are really helpful at keeping it cool. Also, I always open it up when I get home after a trip, so I donít really worry too much about a little condensation on the drive home because I know Iím gonna dry it out in a few hours.

I attach the top clamps to the bunk frame of my high wind gizmos. This provides an air gap. Only if we have significant amount of rain does the canvas get wet. And not puddling wet.

The standard 5x7 space/sportsmen/all-weather blankets fit the rear and side bunks, because they are against a vertical wall.

BUT they don't fully cover the front bunk because the tent is longer, due to the slope of the trailer front.
Many will buy an extra blanket and sew an additional piece on another blanket, in order to completely cover the front bunk.

I know cause I've owned both.

That is true. The front one is a couple inches short to cover the entire front bunk. So I do have a small gap near the top.
