Turnkey vs. Snaps

I looked on the internet for canvas skirting and found 2 types:
-A permanetly installed turnkey system
-A permanetly installed snap system
Both require mounting the hardware to the skin of the AS.
Does anyone have these ystems installed? What are the pros and cons of each system. Is a system available that does not require hardware installation?
Again, I have questions and no answers. Maybe someday I will know enough to give some answers.

Well, I was kinda hoping you would have had some imput to your questions by now as I have the same questions. I am guessing that you mean a covering for over the wheels? When I picked up my '66 Tradewind I noticed some snaps on the front wrap around not far down from the window and behind the tanks to around to each side. The PO said that a previous PO had a stone guard or better put a 'bra' like that you get for protecting the front of a car. The snaps are placed in a such a way that from even a short distance it is difficult to distinguish them from rivets. They in my opinion were not objectionable. Any one else have anything better?
