    I would like some feed back about how high people are setting their Aeroshield.. I have not found a height that works for fuel millage. I'm using this on a 2007 F-250 5.4 pulling a 33' toy hauler. I also have had to go to a ridge mount instead of the adj. that the factory uses. Also do not leave this on your truck in the rain. Water will pour inside. It looks good on the truck but I'm looking for fuel millage. Also I don't see that many on the road.

    The major problem with this wind deflector is that the clips would not work on a 2006 Ford Super Cab, there is not enough room without bending the door for the clips. I purchased a head rack and custom mounted the wind deflector to that. The mileage increase was not measurable, but in defence of the deflector we are using it on a 2013 Laredo that has an excellent aerodynamic design. i adjusted it to keep the majority of the bugs off the front of the fifth wheel, which is the major advantage i can see in having this wind deflector. i would recomment it for some of the older flat front trailers. I had a much more expensive wind deflector on a previous truck, which made significant reductions in fuel usage.

    First trip with Aero Shield installed was 2200 miles, Nv to Washington state, round trip. Millege was about 10% better then last time I made the same trip. Towing 28', 9K lb fifth wheel, Forest River Flagstaff with 2011 F 150 EcoBoost 3.5L. Overall 9.8 MPG at 65-70 mph. Mfg, needs to include info on placement of deflector (distance from trailer) for optimum performance. results

    Improved fuel economy 2 to 3 MPG

    Product shipped quickly and arrived in good condition. It was easy to attached the straps to the unit. When I was Installing it on my 2007 Dodge Ram 1500, one of the tie down straps broke. There is a buckle that you thread the strap through and the strap was fed through one side of the buckle and then sewn to the other side of the strap to keep the buckle attached. The point where it was sewn together is what broke. Customer service responded right away and promptly told me I could go on their website and order a new strap for $4 plus shipping. WHAT???? The product was brand new out of the box. I called them and spent a few minutes and they sent me a strap at no charge. The wind deflector worked great. I averaged 2 to 3 MPG fuel savings when towing my bumper pull travel trailer.

    I was looking for more performance towing, the flat frontal area on my 31 foot trailer is like a big hand trying to hold my Rig back in a head wind. I was hoping by increasing the air flow above my trailer instead of it slamming the frontal area performance would be increased. This was true, but not to the degree I had hoped, it does help in a head wind, and it helps decrease trailer drag, the faster you go the more it helps, 65mph there is a noticeable difference. It also help trailer stability and keeps a lot of bugs off the front of the trailer. It would appear I got a couple of miles per gallon increase on my application. the mounting strap installation was a total Joke in my opinion. I custom mounted it to the Luggage rack of my Excursion as far rearward as possible. The unit looks so flimsy it would fly apart in the wind, but it stayed together. My first trip with is was over the mountains and a lot of steep hills, Mt Hood, Warm Springs hills and Central Oregon, the trip To Winchester on the Freeway will be a better test as 65 to 70 mph cruising will tell me a lot more regarding mileage changes and drag at speed. If your trailer has a big flat frontal area like mine and you can mount it toward the rear your tow Rig, it does help reduce, the power and mileage robbing drag of the wind. It does create a strong updraft behind the tow Rig, so tie down your Propane tank cover and anything else that will be affected by a strong upward airflow on the front of your trailer of fifth wheel.

    works well

    I have had an Aero Shield for several years. Not sure it helps with mileage (I have a 7.4L engine) but keeps bugs, etc., off the trailer and anything on top of the camper shell. Relatively easy to install and remove. It does rattle against the roof of my 2000 Chevy 2500 crew cab which can be annoying (but not enough to design a cushion for under the shield.) and will allow a little drip in the cab from rain at times. If you want to try one I would recommend this for the price.

    Good product except the paint shop had to paint it 3 times as the black plastic kept leaching through the white. Painter called the manufacturer and was told to just scuff it and paint over. Looks great now and keeps the bugs off most of the front of the 5th wheel. A bit noisy when in the folded position, but I recomend this if you want to save some fuel.

    It was easy and quick to install at the rear of my F-250 truck cap. I used it to deflect air over a12ft. height 8ft 6in wide travel trailer.Most of the 4500 miles driven with the trailer behind me were at speeds of 55mph to 70mph. I averaged 10mpg with the deflector raised.Before I installed it I averaged about 81/2 mpg. both in mountains and flat land.The negatives were the sharp edges on the support arms that hold the deflector raised.They could cut the securing straps as well as fingers. After a few hundred miles check tightness of securing straps if you don't unit may slide a few inches like it did to me.

    We recently completed a 9000 mile trek across the US. On the very first leg of the trip the adjustment arms collapsed under very strong desert winds. Our gas mileage dropped from 10-11 mpg to 8-9. A couple of days later I replaced the useless arms with two predrilled angle iron brackets I picked up at Lowes. I couldn't lower it down anymore due to the ridged brackets but did boost my MPG up 10- 12%. It works but does have a weakness in the flimsy aluminum brackets. I also mounted the shield to a Yakima rack system on my camper shell making it very easy to take on and off.

    Ribbed Roof Adjustment


    122 out of 210 people found this review helpful.
    January 30, 2008
    I just installed mine and I was worried about my ribbed roof based on the review submitted by FRANK BENNETT from SPRINGFIELD, OH. But my Aeroshield has five different adjustment holes for each of the suction cups that allow it to fit perfectly. These might have been added on the newer models, but adjustment holes should be able to be drilled in older models. I like the fact that the angle is adjustable, unlike the more expensive fixed aluminum ones. You just need to keep raising it one click at a time until the bugs quit hitting your 5th wheel. If it is adjusted too high, it defeats the purpose of the deflector.

    My Thoughts

    Planning a trip to the LA area from Boise ID we decided to see if this helped. We have an older 5th, a 1999 Hitchhiker. The front is more flat them most newer models. It worked great. I did not get the 30% increase in gas mileage, more like 17 to 18%. But to be fair we did pull a lot of hills in Utah, NV and CA. The trip was over 2500 miles so we were able to test it well. Personally I feel their claims are in ideal condidtions, no wind, and a long flat road. The thing I was most impressed by was the stability, no more pulling and tugging. It also worked great in some strong cross winds. The price was very good and I would highly recommend this if you are in the market to buy one.

    Works great! Saves gas and quiets wind noise. Really shines when running into the dreaded head winds. An added bonus, no bugs on the front of the trailer. Can pay for itself on one long trip. Would not tow without it.

    I read the review that was available and the writer was correct. The units are made in CANADA and you can contact them at icontechltd.com. I do intend to buy a unit when I'm in the USA @ Camping World. Their price is the best. Reviewers on the manf. site claim to get 2-3 miles per gal better milage, one reviewer indicated a 24% improvement in gas mileage.

    Wing looks good,so far the most affordable one out there on the market.What the manufacture left out of the ad was the size.. the one they show online and in the catalog is 56 jnches long, there is a 48 inch wing offered but it is not shown and tech support can't help with an answer. The company that makes this product is in Cananda. Measure before you buy.
