Skirting

Hello all. My name is Cheryl and I am new to the RV world. I really don't travel with my RV so I am needing some help with setting it up to live in. I live in North Carolina and at times it does get a little chilly and the floors are even more chilly. I am looking to resolve that and need some ideas on how to do that. Any comments would be greatly appreciated.

Are you located in an RV park with full hookups?


Year, make and model of RV would help.

Hi Cheryl! Welcome to IRV2! We're sure glad you joined the gang!

We don't normally have to worry about cold weather here in MS so I'll let others advise you on that!

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

Lowes etc has easy to install skirting. it's more designed for mobile homes. It could be used. Would the park mgt ave an opinion about it?

There are some mfg that make more specific skirting Mostly you see it for the front of a 5/er

Welcome to the forum Cheryl. You don't state how you are hooked up but, if you have electricity, would a small oscillating heater do the trick? We use one and it really takes the edge off.

Hi Cheryl! Welcome to IRV2! We're sure glad you joined the gang!

Being a southerner I can't give much advice on cold-weather camping! Have fun and keep her between the ditches!

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

If, where you are also allows this: https://www.homedepot.com/b/Building...n/N-5yc1vZbaxx

I also recommend reading the various posts on winter RV'ing. I have lived in my motorhome for five winters. You need to learn what to do& not do, during temps that fall well below freezing.

Moisture is the enemy of an RV. Get a dehumidifier. Cooking, breathing, condensation cause a massive amount of moisture in an RV.

I, highly, recommend 'wrapping' your windows. This will help to drastically reduce window condensation. You can use bubble wrap, thick plastic or plexiglass. In essence it gives you a similar R-value to double-pane glass. This blog shows these, and more, with pictures: https://rvinspiration.com/rv-life/pr...ws-for-winter/

Keep asking questions. As they say, there are no silly questions.
