Cover for Bunk ends on Flagstaff HW27ks

I'm using my pop up this summer. Wanting to find out alternatives for covers for my bunk ends and slide out to keep the heat out of my pop up. Actually to keep it cooler.

I'm planning to use it quite a bit and it gets really hot here in Florida

popup gizmos (PUGS) - just google it. (they are the silver things on the tent ends) I would get the highest wind version ( i did not, and really wish i had - next set). I have a hybrid camper - but they are also for popups.

i got the ones with the velcro attached - you have to supply the other velcro side which you attach to the camper, but it makes putting them on very easy.

Do these really work to reduce heat inside ? (Vinyl Pop up)

Thanx

Heck Yea!
About 95% of popup and hybrid owners are pleased with their PUGs.

Possibly the #1 mod for popups.

As bikendan said, yes they really do work. We put it to the ultimate test last summer when we went to Arizona in 100 degrees heat and no shade (and we also put reflectix in the windows). We have a back bunk that does not get much air flow from the air conditioner and would get very hot.... The PUGs and reflectix really helped.

And as a side benefit, pugs keep the tenting cleaner.

I agree the PopUp Gizmos work great. Really take the heat down. But you are still in an awning screen canvas bunk and heat comes through the sides still.
I cut the double sided foil insulation (looks like foil bubble wrap) available at home depot, lowes, Amazon. Just get enough to do all your zipper windows. Easily cut to fit and slip in each time you set up. Store on mattress top. Sometimes you can put up the bunk ends with the left in. If it is too stiff to put up, Easy to take out.
