Airtabs

Does anyone have experience using the Airtabs on their RV? Made in Canada and first used on semi trailers. Now they added using on motorhomes, TT, 5th wheels and even SUV's and pickups. Suppose to break up the vortex suction on the back and also decrease the road grime, increase fuel economy, and most important stop that side suction effect when passing or getting passed.

I have Airtabs on my current 30 foot Class A and had them on my former 29 foot Class C. They do what you say above. They do not "stop" the side suction effect but they reduce it. They are not a magic bullet but do help. In addition I have applied the CHF (Cheap Handling Fix) and put a Safe-T-Plus steering stablizer on my RV and the combination of all these things has made my Winnebago Class A have acceptable handling.

I think they will help on anything that has a retangular box shape with a flat back end, I can't say that they would do much on a SUV or a Pickup Truck
