Thanks... I used simple snap fasteners that I bought at Lowes. First I installed them on the fabric itself and then on the coach.
As far as a pattern I rough cut the dimensions for the windshield and then taped it to the coach. I took a sharpie and traced the outside of the gasket around the windshield and then took a ruler to add roughly 1" around the perimeter. I sewed it like a pillow on three sides and then turned it inside out and sewed roughly one inch in to create a space for the reflective insulation. Then I folded over the fabric and finished sewing like you would a pillow.

Thanks
Adam

The original vinyl lasted 10 years so we had no issue with that. We didn't want the weight of tile plus unless heated I find it cold underfoot. The vinyl makes cleanup easy when people and dog feet come inside. A couple of throw rugs on the vinyl work for us.

Check out UGG slippers. Keeps the toes roasty/toasty on tile, vinyl and wood, carpet too. Sheepskin slippers are great to drive in as well.

Another upgrade

I change from blue wall paper tile to tiled backsplash and add an out door fridge.

I am a barefoot kind of guy and ticked off that RV manufacturers (i.e. Forest River & Winnebago) no longer offer carpeting even as a special request option. So if someone wants carpeting on a new coach, they have to install it later, over the vinyl that they did not want in the first place.

Throw rugs. MUCH easier and cheaper to replace when needed due to either wear or change of taste.

Different strokes, as they say. Our new rig was of particular interest because it had NO carpet.

I once asked a Motorhome Rep 'Why don't they put more vinyl in Motorhomes, especially in the bathroom?'. Carpeting in the bathroom, makes no sense.
He told me that it is more expensive to install vinyl (more labor intensive to make everything fit and look right). With carpet, they can cover a lot of imperfections.

Expanded the capabilities of my new smart lights to where them and the HVAC are all controlled by voice via an Amazon Echo device. Wish I could call it the name of my trailer so it is more personal given I'm talking to my house but control is as simple as 'Alexa, turn on the living room lights,' or 'Alexa, dim nightstand lamp to 30%' or 'Alexa, turn the Air conditioning off'

Whoa! Sounds like the Jetsons! If you don't know the reference, you're not old enough! Haha!

Looking at doing some smart house upgrades to the sticks and bricks with a MI casa Verde system. Cheap and seems easy to do. Darn kids don't know how to operate light switches anymore😠

Certainly not to turn them off, on seems to be a slam dunk!

Take their Iphone away and tell them you can't afford the electricity to charge it because they keep leaving the lights on
