When you're looking at your RV or trailer from the outside, the fender skirt is one of the most prominent things that you see. If you can see the wheel, you can see the fender skirt and if your fender skirt sticks out from the side at all, you can likely see it from any angle. They're visible and they're important and if yours is missing or damaged, it needs to be replaced. With the various models here on our site, you can be sure to find one for your specific RV or trailer. But how exactly do the fender skirts on your rig contribute to the overall function?
This might not seem like a super important function for trailers, but if you don't have a fender skirt on your rig, it'll look just...wrong. It's a well-known fact that your RV and trailer travel over rocks, dirt, asphalt, water, and other elements. Without the covering provided by the fender skirt, those elements are out in the open for the whole world to see. It'll take away from the overall appearance of your rig and it just won't look the same. When you add a fender skirt, though, you have a sleek and stylish way of subtly dressing up that often overlooked part of your rig.
Your wheels and RV sides are subjected to everything that the road and other drivers kick up. Without something to shield them from this spray, you can find yourself baffled by how dirty your RV gets after your vacation. If you'd rather your RV not get splattered with road debris, then you're going to need the proper gear, including the fender skirts. While they might not cover the full wheel, they work to protect the top of the wheel well from excess dirt and debris, keeping the wheels as well as the side of your rig cleaner.
The wheel wells in your rig, whether a trailer or RV, can create a good amount of drag. When they're not shielded from the wind, the air gets in there and pulls at your rig, decreasing fuel efficiency and increasing your fuel costs. If you don't have a fender skirt on your rig and you're not getting the best gas mileage, you'll be shocked by how much of a difference this one piece can make.
