DIY trailer skirt for cold temps

I'm taking my trailer to live in Bozeman for November, and I want to save a few bucks by making my own skirt to keep the floor and the tanks from freezing. Does anyone have experience with this? I'm thinking 18oz industrial coated vinyl that I can stick to the sides with velcro and stake to the ground with grommets. Any advice would be great! Thanks!

I'd think that Bozeman might be pretty windy in Winter unless you've got a sheltered spot. Bales of hay are the traditional winter skirting, but rodents might enjoy it too much. I'd think about stakes in the ground all around the trailer, unless you're parked on a hard surface. I'd use sheets of foam insulation, trapped against the trailer sides with your vinyl tarp, behind stakes.
