I did, but it still seemed too tight and thought it could get ugly quickly when I started to back up. I did get up on one, but the ground was a bit soft and I only got a couple of inches.

So I just cut a few more short boards to use, like I've been doing for years.

You're welcome. Yes, two screens. Overkill, maybe. Just making sure to keep bugs out of the works!

Thanks

Glad to hear that, Larry. I tow with an F250 SuperDuty...on the harsh ride side. So, I'm looking forward to many miles of cushioned ride for my Trade Wind '25 with the AirSafe.

Perhaps silly question - how does one choose size for the tire covers?

Measure the diameter of your tire. They seem to come in three different sizes.

These are the ones that I ordered.
