Apron ideas?

Anyone done any creative aprons to give the old trailer that
"Park Model" look?

I figured it would help keep down the moisture, provide a deterent to winter varmints, and also help with insulation.

I had something silvery in mind ... don't think corrgated is quite what i'm looking for ....

Any ideas?

You could get some aluminum sheet cut to size, but unless you did a lot of work to seal it to the sides and ground I don't think you would stop the critters, they get in some tiny holes. I aslo think you would do better with the airflow under it. Any moisture from the ground, pad where it is parked, etc. would be trapped and freeze inside. The tighter you seal it to stop the critters the harder it will be for moisture to escape.

Sealing:

You will also seal any leaking propane fumes creating a confined area ripe for an explosion.

It will not deter moisture, it will actually trap moisture.

It would create a critter haven, out of the elements.

ants & other little critters

FYI-

I've found that the cloth apron touches the ground, which gives ants and other critters another avenue into your trailer(FL is an ant haven). I use wheel covers for UV protection.

General Opinion

So I guess the general opinion is that an apron ... though "smart"
looking on park models .... may not be so smart ....
The negatives seem to outway ANY benefits...
