How to Fit a Draught Skirt to a Caravan
Not all caravan owners use draught skirts, but for those that travel in extreme weather conditions, it can make it far easier to heat and cool their caravan. By preventing cross wind from flowing beneath your caravan, you can maintain a more constant temperature within your caravan and a draught skirt is the best way to do this. It also helps protect the under side of your caravan from being negatively impacted by dirt and debris, so a draught skirt is a multi-functional device, ideal for virtually any type of caravan.
A draught skirt is easy to install with a C – channel or figure 8 connection system. The track is mounted to the underside of your caravan and certain models come complete with the channel already in place, but mounting a channel yourself is easy. Use a strong adhesive and allow it to set for 24 hours before installing the actual skirt. Simply slide the draught skirt along the channel and ensure every corner of your caravan is covered for a proper draught seal. The draught skirt should be large enough to fit around the base of your caravan.
