    Hi
    Any one got any info on the dirt skirt??. Are they good do they keep the dirt off the toad when towing. We are towing our panda this weekend for the first time so any info would help.

    If the effect on fuel economy by fitting a dirt skirt weighs heavliy on your mind,
    Might i suggest you skip breakfast before you set off, that would in all probability ballance things out:Doh:

    They keep the back of the van much cleaner as well. Only downside would be if they clog up with snow the weight could tear them off possibly damaging your van. Make sure brackets etc are up to the job and you should be O.K.

    Geo, you aught to know better than that.
    Some types even improve economy.
    As I said, check with the manufacturer.

    Dunno ScotJimLand.
    Depends on the type.
    As I said, check with the manufacturer.
