yowsa.
hay bails offer better insulation. If you don't like the look, get some 4x8 sheets of filon from HDepot and trim them out.

Hay bails can create a great home for little mouse critters for the winter. Plsu they are a fire hazard.

A Men to that. Chipmunks and squirrels love them too.
I used to work part time for my brother who owned a mobile home sales lot. I repaired more than one mobile home where critters had torn sub flooring and wires up. The hay bales attracted them. The bales attract mold also, rot down and stink.
As far as the skirts in my original post go I think they are just plain ugly. I wouldn't use them if you gave them to me. They'd be a lot of work for a weekender like me. I'll pass.

Ok, how about FRP glued to 2" foam board tucked under the opening. An L brace every few ft.

I can think of better ways to spend $2700($3000?) plus tax and shipping for our 38 footer. If halfway handy, could do a better job with a some sheets of foam insulation, a few 1x3 furring pieces and some plastic roofing. Neither their way or mine is very nice looking with propane being relatively cheap as well as electricity being reasonable in many areas.

I have only skirted once before I retired and go warm when cold, and cooler when hot. That being said. My winter neighbors, about 9, did the 1/2 inch insulation sheets. I working for the electric company and being a smart lineman. Not being on level front to back ground, measured and took pole pieces out of the pole dumpster/s and lined all around my camper, just above the bottom. THEY, thought I was nuts. Then used the heavyest plastic I could find, and used 4 inch electric tape to tape plastic to camper, and then used stapler to connect plastic to pole pieces. ( I did toss mothballs under camper first ) Spring came, plastic went in dumpster, pole pieces went back in pole dumpster. Electric tape left no marks on alm siding and took off no paint. They, had that half inch stuff blowing all over the place in wind storms. Talking cold weather camping, with a guy in AZ, that was from Alaska, and did construction. We came to the cheep and dirty,,,, way to skirt. Good stainless snaps put into camper side/s. Make skirting out of concrete blankest, they are cheep and insulated and made to be outside. One side is orange, other black, to add heat to said concrete. Cut and sew all edges, ( it will sew easy ). Make a little longer. Install other part of snaps into blanket. Two options for bottom, one would be if on a concrete slab, would be to put plastic pipe in bottom and fill with water, and block to hold in place. Other is to put in eyelets at different hights, to drive in spikes to hold it down. If one don't want side snaps, go under, more work but more stealth for resale. Or, use 4 inch 3m electric tape each time. Make velcrow flaps to get to dump valves. And or places to toss extra moth balls, as needed. Total cost, cheep, dumb looks, lots. Fit and style of black in winter, is priceless. .

I do not even see a valid purpose for this. And then you have to go through the work to inflate, deflate and then find a place to carry all this stuff.

The bags come with an air pump. Trust me, I'm not promoting these. I saw them somewhere and put this on here for a few comments and chuckles.
My MH goes into dry storage long before I have to be concerned with skirting.
I lived in two different mobile homes between 1964 and 1974. When I built my house 1974 / 1975 I said never again would I live in a "tin box". Weekends are fine though. LOL
