    On recent visit to South of France while on a beach, we had a hell of a draught coming under the van. I would like to make a draught skirt but not sure where or what material to use. I also think I will have to use some sort of slider to slide it along the bottom of the van. Or fit on with suckers.

    Any one made one of these?

    I just use a smaller wind break and tap it in around the van where it's needed (y)

    Stops 100% draughts, is easily portable, doesn't required any alterations to the vehicle and can be put wherever I need it! :)

    Only drawback would be if you stayed a while on a hard surface as you wouldn't be able to tap in the pegs, but then I don't opt to stop for long in a place like that :)

    There is this available for caravans, one could use C section rail to support it but it would have to be attatched to side of van, why not use a cheap windbreak?

    A lot of funsters have bought suction cups with eyelets to adapt skirts to fit their van.
    We are going to be at the Newark show if you want to see them.

    You can buy skirts for caravan awnings on ebay then you can attach either by screw poppers or suction cups
