Use These RV Vent Insulators To Stay Warm This Winter

Use These RV Vent Insulators To Stay Warm This Winter

As the fall and winter months roll in, you’ll want to make sure that your RV is going to stay warm enough this season.

Even if you’re heading south, consider investing in a secondary heat source like a catalytic RV heater or an electric blanket for cold nights.  Skirting your RV is another great way to insulate if you plan on staying in an area below freezing.

In addition, adding a few vent insulators like these ones from Camco can help keep warm air inside.

How does the Camco RV vent insulator work?

These vent insulators block heat and light, thanks to their 2 ¾ inches of foam and reflective surface. The insulators serve a dual purpose: you can use them during the winter to hold in heat, and in the summer for extra shade.

How to install an RV vent insulator

You can also use these in the skylights above your bed to keep the sun from shining in.  They fit snugly in most standard 14-inch RV vents and won’t fall out while in transit.

How much does it cost?

Camco’s RV vent insulator is relatively inexpensive at about $13 and has raving reviews on Amazon.  For more ways to stay warm this winter, check out this post from RV Life.
