picture of applied air tabs

I am considering adding air tabs to my 40' Winnebago, Vectra. If anyone has pictures I would appreciate seeing them.
Thank you,
David Paul

These Air Tabs have been discussed a number of times on this and other forums and the general consensus is they're a waste of time and money, and look ugly too.

the downside to them is resale and no measurable increase in fuel economy. But hey, I love fishing lures so I cant chastise.

Shiny, oh so shiny...

The one motorhome I saw with them, my first impression was, that's UGLY, ruined the looks of a beautiful motorhome.

Ruin the apperance.........

Maybe it depends on the color of your Coach they are going on
They sure did not "Take Away" from the Appearance of this Essex, I don't think
If you click and zoom in on the photo, you will see they are in front of the steer tire's along with being in front of the rear axle, and the rear side's...........roof also, I believe the owner said..........
I would not want black ones on a white Coach

I think they were nicely done on the Essex, but all of those who have them state there is no increase in mpg, but said they felt better control of the rig when being passed and certain wind conditions. I believe they may have some value in keeping a smaller coach under control, but I see absolutely no value added to a well behaved 45' tag axle coach.

Hi Don....., the owner of that Essex told me that they helped with keeping the Coach cleaner......Rear and the sides, is what he noticed the most.
