    Thanks for the info. on Popupgizmos. My husband would like to hear from someone that
    has used them, and if there are any outlets for them in Oregon.
    We saw something that looked like them this fall, on our last trip of the season. The guy
    that was using them, had borrowed them from a friend and didn't know much.

    Thanks again!

    We have used them on our Coleman Columbia and our Dutchmen 1002xs. You can definately tell the difference in temperature! We generally camp in warm to HOT weather and use them on every outing. The set we have now the reflectex material is starting to flake off so I guess I need to order another set. I recommend them highly.

    I would highly recommend popupgizmos. We use them on the Texas coast and they really help keep the pup cooler. The added suggestion I would make is to order extra clamps (or purchase from a hardware store) if you will be caming in windy conditions.

    We have had our reflectors from PUG for several years now. We have camped in the Florida keys in summer and it was comfortable even in the daytime. We have also mounted them upside down in cooler weather, so the heat is reflected back in. That works too! Happy customers are we.

    the real popup gizmos

    We have the high wind edition and love them... the clips and the shock cord that goes under the bunkend hold the cover in place well.

    Get them, well worth it. I believe if you order direct, there is free shipping to the U.S. during the month of January.

    I have the Pop Up Gizmos and they do a great job reflecting the heat in the summer and retaining the heat in the cooler weather (one reverses them). I ordered mine through Pop Up Exchange.com
    got them within a week of the order. Great service.

    I have my check written for my set, and have to run and buy stamps, but now I've got some Questions about pop up gizmos...

    Are they prone to wearing out over time?
    How long will they last? Seems like a lot of money for something that will wear out in a couple of years.

    Ours are somewhere near 5 years old, maybe older. No sign of wear yet. The clamps are a little rusty, but you can get the clamps (even in plastic form) at hardware stores.

    We purchased the gizmos and love them. We took them to FL last year at the end of August. You could tell the difference. We just bought binder clips to keep them attached to the canvas.

    Hey, if anyone is looking to get the Popup Gizmo's, their website has a "Garage Sale" page. They had a 3 piece (high wind version) set that will be a few inches larger than what I need for my Rockwood with slide out, for $50 plus $11.95 shipping. Regular price for the custom fit is $102 with free shipping thru the end of January. For that kind of savings, I can fold over a couple of inches!
