Fender skirts

Looking for recommendations on where to get new fender skirts for a 2012 cougar Highcountry fifth wheel I want to say the color is like a bronze. Thanks in advance for any replies.

If you want a perfect match: icondirect.com, a Canadian company. (Awaiting a shipment from them as we speak.) Pricey, but excellent quality, I used them on my last rig.

If a close match at half that price will do: recpro.com. (You can always paint the color.)

I recommend taking an existing skirt off and laying it face down on a tiled floor to get the best measurements to match. The measurements I took off the rig were all close but no cigar. When I removed it and gridded it on the tile, it exactly matched an icondirect part.

I bought a set of fender skirts on eBay; measured and then installed. You can paint them any color you like:

A lot of those listings are icondirect's (Icon Technologies).

But shipping was high, I ended up going to local RV dealer and ordering through them. Saved me $80 in shipping.

I would not worry about the actual color, just make sure the actual fender is a match. They are made of vinyl and you can easily spray paint them any color you want before installing them. If you use Rust-o-lium Professional on the plastics or vinyl of your camper, it will last for years and years.

I spray painted with Rust-o-lium Professional (Black) the propane tank cover on my previous travel trailer (an Outback) after the tank cover started fading real bad. It looked awful after only 1 year. After spray painting, the cover still looked new 4 years later when we traded the camper.

Before, (unbelievable .... when the camper was new)



After, a year later, when I spray painted it with Black. It held for 4 more years and looked just as good as when it was first painted:



If the color of your new fender does not match, Black is the universal color that will match with anything. Regardless of any other colors, a black fender will not look odd.


Um... and yes ... in those photos, the trailer originally came with a hand crank front jack. It was quickly swapped out for an electric one.

Good luck.

Wow... from that photo it looks like a perfect factory custom matching gray! I would have just 303-Aerospaced it and flaunted it!

My skirts just started to self destruct on the last trip. I will be shopping for some soon.

That photo was taken when the camper was still brand new. After a year two things happened. The tank cover started fading and miss-matching and got blotchy spots. And the front cap got blotchy spots. I spray painted the tank cover and had Keystone repaint the front cap. Keystone paid for an automotive paint, but I had to pay to replace the graphics, since there was nothing wrong with the graphics.

The front cap and the tank cover looked incredible after 4 more years.

Photo after the front cap repaint.

You mean, other than being under the new paint?

RECPRO.Com probably has them.

Have you got pics and measurements? I've got a brand new fender skirt NIB never opened for a 2014 Cougar High Country 319RLS. It was a TT but the fender might work (you have to cut them if in 2 pieces). The OE fenders were sort of a bronze color. You can have it if you pay the shipping.
