    Whilst away last week my wife used a couple of plastic packing bags (the sealable type) which she blew up and pushed under the motorhome to form a makeshift draught excluder in the awning. It worked a treat but with some gaps. I don't want to fix stick on or screw in studs to the side of the van and this seemed a perfect solution.
    I have looked on the web and found a Khyam Camper Baffle for VW campervans, but can't find a suitable one for our motorhome.
    Has anyone ever seen them?

    Hi Pompey you can buy a mini type of windbreak which goes along the full length of the van I have seen a few different types at the shows including a large inflatable sausage which you jam under the van (y)

    We bonded an awning rail the full length of our lower body and we slip in a full length skirt before putting the awning out/over (depending on which awning) - tucked under the carpet - nice and cosy.

    Hi
    I screwed a rail under the skirt ( topping and starting at the wheel of course) and slide a skirt in. pretty invisible on the underside. Pete
