Stay warmer this winter and reduce your heat costs. Fabricover offers an affordable and easy way to skirt your RV, camper, or travel trailer.
Our standard, heavy duty RV Skirting panel kits are ideal for year round use in harsh temperature climates where your RV may be exposed to hard, cold winds and where extreme, sub zero, temperature
freezing is a potential problem. At Fabricover we offer generic, heavy-duty, custom RV skirting panel kits from our
heaviest 18 oz, polyester reinforced vinyl which is extremely durable
and strong. The 18oz vinyl fabric is tear resistant and the edges will not fray. The individual, custom vinyl panels can easily be cut and folded around steps, hitches, and pipes.

Meets requirements of RV parks
Heavy weight fabric resists wind wear
Can easily be installed by one or two people
Improves the appearance of any RV or Travel Trailer
Helps stabilize your RV and minimize wind rocking
Helps winterize your RV
Easy to clean and store
Fabricover provides generic, finished panels and fasteners only.
We do not fabricate, nor stock skirting for specific RV models. You must determine the correct panels sizes you need by accurately measuring your RV. You must determine the best location for
mounting the fasteners onto your RV. Each RV or Travel Trailer is
different and the installation of the skirting may require additional
hardware which you can purchase locally at any hardware store.
After you have completed the installation of your new RV skirting panels, strips of vinyl can be glued to the vinyl panels to cover any gaps between panels using the VINYL FABRIC STRIPS. We also offer (glue in) Vinyl Zipper Splices in several different lengths, which allow you to un-zip separate panels, if needed. We also offer (glue in) Vinyl Hook and Loop (velcro) Splices in several different lengths, which allow you to connect and separate panels, if needed.

included with your order and must be installed on the trailer, in a
solid location, with small screws or rivets. (Screws or rivets are not
included). The female components of the twist lock fastener come
pre-installed in the cover at approximately every 20". You must
determine the the proper type of screw or rivet to use for your
application. The male component of the twist lock fastener sticks out 3/4". Make sure you have clearance for the twist lock fasteners if skirting your RV slide out. Do not pre-drill all the fastener holes in your RV. Attach one twistlock fastener at a time as
you work your way around your RV. All twist lock fasteners have
corrosion resistant nickel finish and rust-resistant brass springs. Mounting screws are not provided for the twistlock fasteners.

male component of the snap fastener (shown above right) are included
with your order and must be installed in the trailer, in a solid
location. The female components of the snap fastener come pre-installed
in the cover at approximately every 20". The male component of the snap fastener sticks out 1/4". Make sure you have clearance for the snap fastener if skirting your RV slide out. Do not pre-drill all the fastener holes in your RV. Attach one snap fastener at a time as
you work your way around your RV. All snap fasteners have corrosion
resistant nickel finish and rust-resistant brass clips.
The adhesive backed, HOOK
component of the velcro fastener is provided with each panel you order
and must be installed on the trailer, in a smooth, flat, clean location.
The LOOP component of the velcro fastener comes pre-sewn on the
individual skirting panel. It is recommended that the outside
temperature be 40 degrees F, or warmer, when applying the sticky back
component onto your RV. (Caution: Extreme heat during the
summer months may loosen the adhesive backing on the hook side, causing
it to sag or shift on the RV. Small screws with washers placed through
the velcro into the RV will help minimize this problem. Twist lock
fasteners can also be manually installed through the velcro for a more
secure attachment. The adhesive backed hook side of velcro on your RV
may also need to be replaced occasionally due to weathering.)
Securing each panel to the ground. Each panel has a bottom "Pocket Hem" for weight inserts as well as stake loops spaced every 5 feet.
finished skirt panel has a 5" pocket hem sewn along the entire bottom
for weight inserts. (The 5" pocket hem is not included in the overall
height of the panel). The 5" pocket hem is designed to fold back under
the RV and lay flat on the ground. Rope stake loops are also placed
into each skirting panel every 5' along the bottom allowing you to
securely stake the panels into the ground. (Stakes are not included)
HELPFUL THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT RV SKIRTING:
height measured over the RV wheel axles should always be a consistent
height to the ground, no matter where your RV is parked.
rubber beading trim found on most RVs is usually mounted at a
consistent height on all four sides and is a good, solid mounting point
to consider for skirting.
using twist lock fasteners, you must determine the proper type of screw
or rivet to use for your application. Your local hardware store
professional can help you.
If using velcro fasteners, you must apply the sticky back velcro to a clean, smooth, flat surface.
Longer panels can be wrapped around corners to skirt both the sides and ends of your RV.
Use longer panel lengths when possible to minimize openings and reduce splicing.
Slide out skirts are generally mounted higher on the RV and may require a separate skirting panel.
If the slide out space tolerance is minimal, fasteners are not always required to be mounted on the short ends of a slideout.
of the rounded shape on the front nose of many RVs it is recommended to
use twist lock fasteners on the nose skirting for more secure
To minimize wrinkling, it is recommended that you attach one fastener at a time as you work your way around your RV. Do not pre-drill all fastener holes.
Always cut the vinyl skirting fabric from around heat source areas like the furnace or hot water tank exhaust.
not drive or pull your RV with the skirting panels attached. Before
traveling, remove the skirting panels from your RV and store them
HOW TO ORDER:
(STEP 1) Measure your RV to determine the correct height and length of the individual panels you will need to fully skirt your RV

Panel Height choices available are: 24", 30", 36", 42", 48", 54", 60", 66", 72".
Determine the panels lengths required to fully skirt you RV on all four sides. Measure depth and length for separate slide out panels, if required.
These are your individual panel lengths.
Panel Length choices available are: 10', 15', 20', 25', 30', 35' (Depending on height)
(STEP 2) Select your appropriate skirting panel height and length, your fabric color, and choice of fasteners, then order above.
