The GFC did pretty great! We were able to run the little buddy heater in the sub freezing temps to preheat the camper before bed, and we were able to cook in it to stay out of the wind. Even with the 2 inch topper we were able to close it up without much trouble, most of the time. Some days it really just didn’t want to work.
BUT… We did have one big problem… Bugs.
I don’t know about yours, but we have a ton of bugs getting into our camper though the sides. The fabric is loose along the top between the snaps. In one area there is over an inch of loose fabric. It seems all the mosquitoes, moths and whatever else wants in flies into the sealed up doors, then walks up and straight into the camper and down the roof. We spend half evening and morning killing bugs on the translucent roof.
Anyone else having issues or a solution? We have considered taking the fabric out, and getting velcro sewed between the snaps and attaching it to the aluminum with some VHB, but that’s a lot of modifying, so I wanted to hear your thoughts first.
