I saw one last week on the road so I could not talk to the owner - looked like black thick vinyl to me.

I really liked the professional look of Ken Smily's SS segment protectors.

I don't have either the window or bottom protectors. I think the more important one to get first would be the smoked window protectors.

Like Smily I would like to make mine to avoid the roughly $750 cost of A/S supplied protectors. I heard the lower SS ones run about $650. So we're talking higher math of $1400. Ouch!
There are other things I'd like to do with that kind of dough!

I'm wondering if some of you creative folks out there have done a "traveling only" removeable and rollup protector...

Something that comes to mind is the silver sunscreens that fold/roll up for storage. Now that may not hold up, but it could be disposible after a couple seasons. And it could attach with industrial strength Velcro.

I've heard that people use attached cardboard on front when making the Alaska trip cause of increased incidences of trucks throwing rocks on that Alcan Hwy.

Or maybe making a more permanent window protector using carefully bent aluminum frame and riveting in 1/8" plexiglass curved to the window.

I'm rambling but trying to stimulate ideas and NOT reinvent the wheel !!!
