Fifth Wheel Storage Skirt??

We will be staying in Yellowstone for 5 months this summer living in our fifth wheel. I was considering getting one of those skirts that attaches around the toungue portion of the 5er to have a concealed storage area. Thinking I might take the hitch out and store it under there for example to keep it out of yellowstone weather. Not secure I know but it seems like a good place to store inexpensive lawn chairs as well and I doubt anyone would steal the hitch

Anyone use one of these skirts to have an opinion good or bad? Brand recommendations?

I had one installed on my 5ver before I picked it up and when I camp for more than a couple of day's I put it up.. DW calls it her little garage.. We put chairs and bikes underneath in the evening and it keeps everything concealed and dry.. I've never taken a picture of it on my 5ver but I can tell you that I have had a lot of compliments on it.. when it's clipped on just a bit of my trail air is exposed .

If you camp in the winter they will allow you to put a heater under your rig to prevent freezing problems. I just had one installed this winter for camping in PA this past winter.

I suspect as long as they are allowed in the Yellowstone EE RV lot, we will order one. I hear you have to screw the snaps onto the trailer. That makes me nervous. Thanks for your input. Sounds very positive. Noone responded for a few days, and a search on this site came up with nothing. I was starting to think they must be bad or noone uses them.
