    just happened to look out the upstairs window at the roof of the motorhome

    nice clean , aerodynamic line except for
    1 heikki roof vent
    2 small roofvents
    3 solar panels
    1 satellite dish
    1 terrestrial aerial

    and it occurred to me that perhaps an aerofoil would clean up the airflow :Smile:
    such things used to be available for the towcar to improve the flow over a a caravan
    wondered if anybody had produced such a thing for a motorhome roof ...the front third of mine is clear , but thereafter ???

    aerofoil would just cause turbulance and drag further back so nowt to gain.

    and it would look silly...:Doh:

    i reckon with the massive airbrake that is the front of the van it really is unnessecery
