It makes it so much easier. Just raise the roof a foot; attach the gizmo to the velcro strip on the roof; raise up the roof to normal height and the gizmo goes up with it nice and tucked under the lip of the roof. Then you just simply open the bunk ends like normal and the gizmo is already on the top of it.

I got my gizmos last year, used them for the first time a few weeks ago, they where great, also got the bunk liners, the wife loves them. We can tell the difference with them. They do a great job at keeping the canvas clean. Second season campjng.

Keeping the bunk ends clean is the primary reason I use them. We all find ourselves under pine trees when camping and once the pine gets there..... I gizmos are easier to clean when you can lie them flat on the ground and scrub. Tenting is hard to do on the camper.

Did you buy the bunk liners or make them yourself out of reflectix?

I think gizmos and liners will be my next purchase.
It was 42 degrees and raining last night. Had the furnace running. And woke up to condensation droplets hanging over my head, poised, waiting to drip on my face, like a panther stalking its prey.

I wonder if liners might cause more condensation since, depending on the number of people in the trailer, humans expel a lot of moisture.

Now that is a good question.

We actually had a "Mr Heater" running on the little propane tanks to preserve battery life. Had it left over from my old pup. It was just me and the wife sleeping in the front bunk. (Kids are home puppy sitting). Heater was on the counter pointed towards us.

I noticed that there was actually MORE condensation in the rear (unoccupied) bunk.
Front was smaller droplets. Back was big drops that had actually dropped, to the point the rear mattress has wet polka dots.

I was told if the fan runs slightly to vent the moisture out it will greatly reduce the inside condensation in a trailer. One reason why I installed one of those covers on the fantastic vent so I can run it even in a rainstorm.

Allowing for air movement and using PUGs, will solve nearly all inside canvas condensation.
Some newbies close up their RV, tight as a drum, which creates a perfect environment for condensation to form from humans breathing.

Vinmaker I got the bunk end liners, at time I got my gizmos they were offering free shipping. I will be using reflex in the main window area when needed.
