Is Skirting Necessary

Just curious, is skirting my Class A even necessary? We've noticed in all the advertisements and "How To" video on Skirting, they only show TT and 5'ers. We've also noticed that Tiffin's sit really close to the ground. I know I may have answered my own question, but a layer of doubt still exists.

We'll be living in the DC area this winter if that helps with your analysis.

IMO - it depends.

If you will be sitting and the temperatures drop very low it will not hurt. Keeping the underside slightly warmer will help prevent any freezing of the water and sewer lines as well as keeping the floor warmer.

You are going to be paying in either case. Either for the skirting or for heat to keep everything warm.

Nothing worse than having a freeze up when it is cold and then having to deal with it in less than optimal conditions.
