Default The hover craft - wheel covers.

After looking at wheel covers on other coaches, we decided that we wanted something a little more custom. And since the wifey and I are all about biting off more than we can chew, we heeded off to Joann Fabrics. I took off the small door for our exterior wash bay, it has all the colors that we will be wanting to match, and brought it with us to Joann's. We decided on marine grade vinyl and after visiting 2-3 stores found the colors that best matched The_Money_Pit.

After all completed it now looks like a hover craft. the side skirts only go on for extended cold weather stays, like spending winter in SLC, UT.

some commercial grade velcro is glued and screwed on metal fender trim just behind the exposed fiberglass fenders. You have to look up and behind your fenders to see this rail.

on the wheel covers, the opposing velcro is glued and either sown or stapled, don't remember.

I think it's really cool, but you know only "sick" people do stuff like that. Glad I am not alone.

A video of you driving it around slowly and making big wide turns in a large parking lot with the skirts attached, so that the tires won't rub on them, would be cool and really mess with some peoples heads, then put it on YouTube
