I have recently retired full time to an RV "tiny home." Currently having to spend the winter in southwest Wyoming, elevation about 7,000 ft. I need to skirt my Nexus Ghost super C, but can't find anyone who has skirted a C. Anyone have any experience / ideas?

Thanks, Darryl&Rita. I looked at Kimber's Creation's portfolio and saw some good looking rigs, all travel trailers and 5th wheels. I didn't see any class c's. That's my problem. And, thanks for the invite. Really enjoyed my last trip to Canada. Hope to do it again.

First of all, welcome to the Escapee forums! Always happy to see new folks join in so please do not hesitate to join into any thread or to start new ones.

Have you considered doing the job yourself? While I can't recall seeing it done with a class C, I have seen a class A that the owner skirted using the foil wrapped, expanded foam board materials from a building materials company.  What they did was to cut the sections to fit and set landscape timbers along the edge on the ground, staked down and then attached the foam board to that. The cut edges were sealed by using the metallic duct tape.

I take it this will be for a single Winter only . I spent a Winter in Cheyenne , not exactly the same , but ...

Straw bales ... yes they look redneck , but you probably won't find anything that will insulate nearly as well . If you want to get fancy , wrap the outside two sides in plastic . And , there's should be a rancher handy to take them off your hands when it's time to leave .

Thank you for the welcome, Kirk. So glad to have friends who have done this before! The foam board solution sounds good. I'm going to look into that with a construction buddy I have. And in the meantime I am going to start looking for a source for bales of straw. I remember when I was a kid, for a while we lived in a travel trailer. Moved a lot for my dad's job (carpenter). He used straw for our insulation one winter in Lander, WY. Thanks for reminding me. Really appreciate the help!

2X on the bales.  Local hay (read poor quality) worked for us.  Got us through a winter with temperatures to 16 below while the winds were blowing 65 mph..

Later,

PS  Might not like the red neck look in a park though.

Have you considered a short term rental for the winter and just park the RV alongside.  Far more comfortable living during 16 below winters!
