how do awning skirts/wheel covers attach to the van?

Mine slides into the lower awning rail on the van - and over the wheel there are sometimes clips or press-studs to clip the top piece into to keep it in place. The skirt is them pinned down on the grass in the same manner you pin down an awning.

If you don't want to drill in to the caravan body a good alternative to press studs is self adhesive velcro pads. My Bradcot came with these as atandard. They get a bit tatty after a while but it's easy to replace them with no damage to the 'van body.

I use rubber suckers which have small bulldog clips attached. Works a treat.

I bought them last year in a small ironmongers in Melrose in the Scottish Borders. After showing me a selection of suckers which were too small, I was flabbergasted when the assistant produced the larger ones with the clips. They are just ideal. A friend has suckers without the clips which he has screwed into the press stud caps. They hold remarkably well albeit not perfect. DIY stores might have something suitable.

 

Melrose, incidentally, is wonderful. The only "national" names in the town were two banks. All the other businesses were privately-owned. Wonderful butchers, bakers and greengrocers!

Almost forgot,

I fasten the cover to the skirt, shove it behind the wheel and fasten it there with some pipe lagging, makes a wind proof fit,

I was sidetrack, still thinking of Scotland, B)

I put an eyelet in each corner of the top of the wheel cover and used plastic suckers with hooks attached to secure through the eyelets to hold the cover in place. Velcro holds the bottom of the cover to the skirt.

 

The suckers/ hooks I got for Towsure (I think 10 on a card for £1), they are ment for holding towels etc. - it worked for me OK last season.
