Frequently Asked Questions

General Questions

Will skirting hurt my RV?

RV Skirts are not kind to RV's we have to put ALOT of turn buttons on your RV. It can scratch your RV. If you don't nail the skirt down or use sand bags it can beat your RV.

What happens if we show up at your place for a skirt?

We have a large parking area, and 2 areas where there are 2 - 30 amp outlets, it's on crushed asphalt and level. When people show up early enough one day we try to have them out by the next evening. We are also putting in a dog run yard by one of the parking areas. If need be we also have a regular 15 amp outlet and a long heavy duty cord. 

We'd like to have some notice but will help you out however we can. Sometimes we are not all here so it is best to make an appointment. Or if you are not scheduled it may take longer.

I changed my mind and don’t want a skirt but I made an appointment!

No problem, just call text or email us and let us know. We understand and we will not try to talk you into a skirt, but we like the idea of not driving to your location to find this out when you open the door and we are all standing there 3 hours from our home.

Why are motorhomes more?

Sure we do...Motorhomes are a pain, people usually want access to all the storage doors (as many as 14), and want the skirt in a lot of pieces to make wheel covers and more or want the skirt not to hang on the outside or something. Then the installation is way different than a 5th wheel. So we are charging a lot more about $3500 to do motorhomes.  Yes, we will still do a motorhome skirting but we normally do them at our location only, and in the Sping and Summer.

You used to answer the phone all the time now it’s later before you answer

We can stop sewing and pounding the turnbuttons to answer the phone or we can just keep on working! In todays age of phones, text us or email us, but before you do look at the website and our videos! All the answers you may have are on our website. By the way... let us know who you are, where you are and what you have and when will you be coming to Colorado Springs?  Or send us a text or email

I ordered a skirt from “Curt Miller” where are you?

It's a family business and my kids have worked for me for years, told me they can do many things that I normally do. This is ok by me, I like to I may sew your skirt or sometime help install but it is usually my kids out there doing all the work these days, they are efficient, see better and are very good at the job they do and are more agile than old dad. I thank all the repeat customers that knew my face and like our work and the new customers that will be seeing the kids more... I'm hanging out at "Miller's View" more now. While the kids are working I get to play Grandpa to Zander and Elias and it's a heck of a lot more fun!

When is the best time to get a skirt?

We can make a skirt anytime, we make them all year long! Spring.. February to June are the best times for the quickest skirt, it is our slower time. From July 1st to February 1st EVERYONE wants a skirt and wants it now. Stop in Peyton Colorado for a couple of days or we can come to your location locally. You can even stop in for a couple of hours at our location for a Fit-N-Ship Skirt...with an appointment. We have 30 amp power for 2 RV's at a time to get a skirt, we even have a fenced dog area for you.

Is my Skirt done yet? Did you start it? (internet skirting kits)

We don’t start a skirt until we get a deposit on mail order skirts, we tried the honor system, didn’t work. If you have not paid a deposit we have not started your skirt, we prefer 1/2 down and the other 1/2 when we ship it out. We do not want all your money at once, too many people 3 days later asking where my skirt is… ” I paid you” the average skirt takes 2 weeks to make from start to finish.  Even if we have your card info we do not charge it until we start cutting out your skirt.

I had an upholstery guy make a skirt for me and it was terrible, can you fix it?

We feel people should specialize in a field, we don’t do upholstery, we make skirting. Many different people think they can make skirting. We can try to make your skirt that you bought elsewhere a little better, we usually do this in the Spring and Summer, if you are shipping it to us please clean it first.

Who makes the best Rv Skirting?

I would hope it is us, we try to put alot of extras into our skirts, more than any other canvas shop that says they make skirting. Our skirts have been deigned over 23 years with customer input and with our strap system and pads our skirts are extremely strong. We are a small family business and try to make you and your RV look good. We also strive to be the best in Customer Service. Our Family name is on each one of our skirts!

What if my skirt does not fit right?

We will fix it and make it right, even if it is your fault, we want you to be happy and able to use your skirt, we will try to make any alterations you may need or send a glue on zipper or something to help, but we will not refund your money, this is all custom to your RV.

Your skirts appear to be a bit loose fitting, why?

We don’t make our skirts super tight, they need to be a bit loose-especially when the ends connect with Zippers, skirting material can shrink and stretch depending on the weather. You might want a bit of airflow even in the winter or under your RV could end up smelling like a wet basement, this is why we don't use the awning rail system for skirting.

What will you skirt, I live in a semi trailer for long periods of time?

We have skirted A LOT of things, semi trailers, office trailers, Bathroom Trailers,, pump trailers, park models, a mobile bank, a log home, a Yurt, on the small end, trailers as small as 13′, truck campers, tent trailers and we are open to more!

What if something is wrong with my skirt when I get it?

We try to take care of our customers, we have made mistakes and try to take care of that. We have even helped out customers when they made the mistake. We want you business and others around you.

How many pieces will my skirt be in?

A small pull trailer with 1 slide might have 5 pieces, a 5th wheel with 2 slides would have 8 pieces, most skirts are 5 to 11 pieces.

When should I get a skirt or order a kit?

If it is August you had better order as soon as possible if the idea of being warm this winter is an appealing thought. We have been busy this summer from people thinking ahead and those that we could not get to this last winter. Just don’t be mad at me when you call after the ground is frozen and you need a “skirt right now” and we cannot get to it right away.

Why get a skirt?

Energy saving –Propane, our customers tell us they save at least 50% on propane bills. Keeps critters out, covers tires, stops from pipe freezing. More storage, keeps RV Park owners happy with less clutter. Could it hold down your RV in high winds?

You just did a “fitting for my skirt and there are not many turnbuttons on my RV?? What the??

Ok, we did the “fitting” we leave a couple of turnbuttons for each part, when we return with the finished skirt we will put all the turnbuttons and snaps on the RV, it is easier to do when the skirt is completed… we would not just put a few turnbuttons on your RV to hold on a skirt… turnbuttons are every 12″

I just called you… and you use a cell phone as a business phone! Are you a real business?

Yes, we are real… we try to answer the phone as much as possible - at home in the evening, while working on an RV at the RV Park, driving (Hands Free) or while at Home Depot… Todays business is on the move and mobile, we are staying with the times. 

Questions About Skirt Features

Do you cover cabinet doors?

We go low under cabinet doors to give you easy access to your storage and cabinet doors are not as strong as the RV or the fiberglass to hold up to turnbutton usage.

Access, Is there access under my 5th Wheel?

YES!, we normally make the front part of the skirt into 3 parts with zippers at the corners, easy to get in and use the area, also easy to pack it up and move. How often are the turn-buttons or snaps?The turn-buttons are every 12″, snaps are every 9″. We prefer turn-buttons but will use snaps or Velcro if you request.

Why are there snaps on the ends of my slide-out and under my door?

The slide-out might not go in and out with turn-buttons on the ends. Snaps are put under the door area so you do not trip or catch your foot on them.

What about my Generator exhaust?

We suggest putting a little larger and longer pipe onto the existing generator pipe, put it on with a couple of set screws, this will get it outside the skirt and no damage to the zipper.

My side cabinet doors are very low how do I get access?

We put the skirt under your storage doors. The doors are not as strong as the actual RV and might not hold turnbuttons very well, and it would be harder to get into the storage.  

My Sewer Access?

My We put in a double headed zipper for your sewer or sewers so the hose can come out through the skirt and hook up. We make these zippers Vertical or Horizontal depending on your set up. If your sewer valves are below the skirt we also make a zipper access to those. A double headed zipper closes around the sewer.

I’m not sure I like the way you make your skirt, will you make it my way?

Certainly, we are always open to new ideas. We have made skirts just as people have wanted, chain in the bottom, no nail down straps but longer, with d-rings or grommets at the bottom, even grommets on the top, even nothing on the top to hang it-this customer planned to screw his to his home made camper. We are happy to make it your way!

Questions About Skirt Materials

Hardware Included?

Yes all skirts have all the hardware needed to hang the skirts, only the Local Custom Skirting comes PVC pipe. All skirts get the storage bags and nails to nail it down.

I’ve heard plastic zippers break do you use them?

Our zippers are YKK Marinemate #10, the largest they make, nylon zippers with a Metal zipper pull, most things on a zipper that breaks is the pull, ours are metal, they do not usually break. If they do we can get new zipper heads. We are happy to make your skirt with Velcro if you would like.

Why use turn-buttons rather than snaps or Velcro?

Turn-buttons are put on with 2 screws 1-1/4″ apart, it makes them very stable, even when used on very light metal on an RV. They turn and you are done, no pulling and tugging or pushing hard to get the skirt on.

We have an update on Velcro, a person has a 1 year old skirt… not ours! See why not to use Velcro on an RV

Why not use wood or Styrofoam?

Actually wood might have better insulation value, but how long does it take to put up wood or Styrofoam? now to take it apart and move, AND haul it with you or buy new materials when you get to the next place, how many hours involved? Our skirting is designed to put up and take down in an hour after the first installation. It is also designed for uneven locations, and it packs away smaller and is lighter.

Are your turnbuttons stainless steel?

Our turnbuttons are Nickel plated brass, any skirting place telling you they use stainless steel turnbuttons might want to check on their source and description. They might not be very well informed on the product they sell. Turnbuttons are called common sense fasteners, toggles… you name it. But they are usually Nickel plated brass. We are the only place that offers Black Turnbuttons

Do you make insulated skirts?? Do I need one?

We are really not interested in making insulated skirting, ours has worked great so far. We have had customers in -40 weather and have not frozen up, and have a $40 ceramic heater from home depot under the RV just in case. An insulated skirt also takes up A LOT more room when you move.  You can check with Kimbers Creations in Canada for an insulated skirting.

Your skirt is not insulated, will you make an insulated skirt?

Our skirts are all over the world with no insulation, North Dakota, Canada and Europe, we have been told of customers in -40 with the wind chill and not froze up.  We suggest a small heater under the RV to help. We really don't specialize in insulated skirting.

Questions About Traveling

Why don’t you travel like you used to?

We do skirting year round here in Peyton Colorado, we have traveled for years, not so interested in living on the road anymore. . There would be  big travel charges added for travel skirting. 

I’ve tried to get a skirt from you before and you never got to me!?!

We are a small family business not a huge empire and cannot skirt the world, we try to get as many people done as possible but things happen here and there, some one may get left behind or have to get a skirt at a more convenient time. As the days get shorter and colder we end up doing less work than a long nice summer day. I'll admit it... some people or jobs just fall through the cracks.

You traveled to me before will you come here again?

We plan to stay more local to the Colorado Springs area, we are not traveling long distances to make full skirting anymore, . We have 2 30 amp power outlets here for people coming to us for skirting so you can stay in your RV while we make your skirt...  In a hurry... we also make Fit-N-Ship skirting... stop in for 3 hours with an appointment. with an appointment! 

What are the Travel Charges?

Our Travel charges are open, but they would need to cover fuel, lodging, travel pay for each member truck costs and incentive to travel. It has to be worth it to leave or I might as well stay local and work or just stay home, being home is a whole lot more fun. Just figure... ALOT!

Money - Payments - Discounts - Refunds

Do you give discounts?

Cash (green) will save you some $$$. We will give you firm pricing in 3 ways... Cash, by check or Money order and also by Credit / Debit Cards (add 3%). Cash would be the only type of discounting we will do. As an example a 40' Toyhauler at our location would be $2400 cash, $2575 by check or Money order, $2652.  Travel to your location will add to these prices.

Do you warranty your skirts?

On Skirting there are no actual guaranties, it is basically Semi Truck Tarp Material that we are using to wrap your RV for the past 21 years. We do take care of our customers if they have a problem that is something they did or we did. We also make our skirting pretty much the strongest and most protected possible.

Do you take checks?

Certainly, it might take a few days more to ship out your skirt, we do like to make sure the check clears before we ship out the skirt. We also deal with many banks so you can also do a transfer or something, we understand not everyone likes credit or debit cards, to these we add 3%.

Do you take payments?

We tried it and it didn’t go so well, we are happy to get a deposit when we start your skirt then the rest when we install it or ship it if that will help you out at all. We do accept PAYPAL, they will let you do payments on your account.

After ordering the skirt I find I don’t need it, do you give refunds?

Basic answer NO! it is custom made for your RV. We can help you sell it or something but there are no refunds.
