Skirting on Trailer
[Return to Topics]

We are in the process of selling our home in town and moving to our land. The trailer was delivered today, everything went well except my pad was not level. As a result, The skirting that came with the trailer is not going to work. The skirting is 27 inches high and the trailer ranges from 27 inches on one end to 40 inches on the other end. Any inexpensive ideas on how to skirt it? We are planning on being in the trailer two years max, so I would like to keep the cost down.

In the park I live in they use bricks and stack them staggered. They look ok and make it easy in case you need to get underneath for anything.

Up here they use haybales for skirting. More correctly, they use baled cat-tails. Yep they'll rot pretty fast but they won't trap moisture, and when you enclose anything with a dirt floor, you're making a greenhouse that'll start rotting joists like magic. Skirting HAS TO breathe.. :)

get some dirt build up the 40in. end to match the rest, only have to build up around the outside not the whole pad, dirt is usually fairly cheap.whats the skirting ,that plastic siding stuff,?thats fairly cheap too could buy some of that and cut it longer and make some frame work for it , so it would be solid.

Could keep eye open or ask about siding closeouts. This stuff works well and usually cheaper than the usual skirting fare.
