NUTS!

Any suggestions on covering the roof of a RV to stop the falling acorns? If you think I'm kidding just park under a few Oak trees. Acorns sound like marbles and Walnuts should like baseballs! LOUD and when the wind blows it's down right scary - like pouring them out of a five gallon bucket not to mention the concern of them busting a vent window or sky light.


I'm thinking of using camouflage netting a couple of feet above the roof...


Ideas?
Thanks
John

Big piece of bubble wrap should do the trick.

I don't park under Oak trees.not because of acorns but due to the tree sap.
REAL PITA to remove


Parked under some Pecan Trees.....squirels would drop them then retrieve later.
Sounded like very large hail hitting roof


But I got back at the squirels.
I collected the pecans BEFORE they had a chance to retrieve them

Never liked any critter that runs around with their nuts in their mouths.

Just spent the last 20 minutes cleaning the Ice Tea off my keyboard that shot out my nose.
