Question Bugg Banner yes or no

I saw an ad in Trailer Life for Bugg Banner (https://buggbanner.com/). It covers the front of your 5th wheel while traveling and protects the camper from all those hard to get off bugs and "crap". One of the questions asked was does it flap in the wind and the answer was no (Hard to believe). Has anyone had experience with these?

Like the bras one used to buy for cars? I had one on my Grand Prix. They moved.

I vote no as its just another surface for the bugs to splat on. No matter what you put on its still going to get dirty and will need to be washed. At best it might stop stone chips but it will still cause some abrasion from dust getting under it so pick your poison. There's no way that thing will not move at highway speeds.

Thumbs up

hey guys just happened up on this post and thought I would share my experiences with buggbanner. First off I have to say I can't imagine camping without it. As far as it moving while going down the road IT DOES NOT!!! it looks like a tattoo on my Montana. Also when it gets dirty you just take it down while standing on the ground (not a ladder) and throw it in the washing machine. I love it!!!

Looks like a good idea to me. I'd gladly pay $19.99. But no, not $199.00 or anything close to that. Somebody is living in a dream world if you ask me.

I use this on mine and the bugs just slide off with a little water. Most of them don't even need the washbrush. https://www.amazon.com/Star-brite-Pr...BJ33ZD5AMYV0RY

$199.00? I’ve only found it for $299.00
I used to work on cars, RVs, etc. for a living and I’ve seen plenty of bra type front end protectors. They all damaged the finish, no matter how well they were secured.
After looking at the website pictures of this thing, I don’t see any way it would not do the same (especially only being secured on 4 corners).
My suggestion is save your money, use wax or 303 regularly and wash as needed.
The Star Brite PTFE stuff in another post looks interesting (and much cheaper). May give it a shot.
