    Thanks Steve! I was looking at these, I even emailed the guy and he said he should have them for my pup. I don't know if I'll need the high wind gizmos or not but I usually lean toward overkill.

    Thanks, we don't have air either and if we can't get a spot in the shade it can get a bit toasty!

    Our PUP roof has styrofoam insulation lining it. How/Where would I attach the velcro to the inside? Any ideas that don't include drilling holes? Not sure if gluing would be enough......

    Well, I think the PUGs have Velcro on both sides so you could sew small sections of Velcro to the canvas I guess, but I wouldn't compromise the canvas if it's less then 10 years old.

    You don't have to use the Velcro. The bungee straps of the Supper High Wind PUGs will hold it down to the canvas without any problem.

    Mine came right after I ordered them, that guy is quick!
    He told me he didn't think I needed the velcro so I took his advice, I also bought one of his cooler covers. It hasn't been too warm here lately, I hope to get to test these Gizmos out soon, I'll post some pics when I do!

    We put Velcro under the roof end, three pieces on each end, self-adhesive industrial weight. We discovered one of the hook pieces had stayed attached to the PUG when we took them off the last time. [I followed the usual Velcro habit most sew-ers use, which is that the plush part goes on the side that will point toward the body, or in this case, on the part we will be handling.] We may end up stapling the hook part to the pup.
    Dealing with all those shock cord ends, which is very worth it for stability of the PUGs, got old for me really fast. This is what we're trying for this season:

    The shock cords will stay attached to the rings, which might also reduce tangling as we fold and put them away. (We don't have enough space to leave them on the bunk end, we sacrificed that for memory foam mattress toppers.)

    kitphantom, I love the way you did that. I'll have to try that next time out.

    Thanks for posting that! I am thinking of getting the high wind PUGs as well and was wondering how they attach under the bunk!!

    The space blankets will help a lot. I used them for 2 years on my Coleman Utah pup and then used the same ones on my Hybrid TT bunks for 16 years. They worked great.

    I did just splurge on a custom PUG to cover my new-to-me Cox Cadet tent camper. I haven't tried it out yet.

    PUGizmos were very helpful and delivered in a couple of weeks - they are very busy at the moment(good for them!).

    Just received the Super high Wind this afternoon. I was working inside the bunk ends preparing for next weekend trip and the heat reflecting from the canvas was brutal. Decided to
