Wind deflecter

About 4 years ago when we were down to the JC Whitney they had this wind deflector on sale so I picked one up. Folks ask me if it does any good "YES" number 1 it helps me locate my truck in the Walmart parking lot. #2 it keeps the buggs off the front of the trailer #3 it eliminates air turbulence in cargo box completely, before I couldn't even keep an electric cord loose in the box without it flying out ,now nothing moves. As far as milage who knows but it must be doing its job by deflecting air over and above my rig. i didn't use the staps that were intended to hold it in place as I screwed it down to the roof so i know it will stay in place. I also filled the ends of the hollow square tubing it is made from as to eliminat a whistling sound it made

Improving aerodynamics is a good thing.

Seems like your deflector install has many other advantages too.

I saw Lydon's set up 2 weeks ago and seriously thinking of getting on, the clean trailer alone is worth the price.
