Anyone installed or considering install of one of those stowable roof mounted towing wings/air deflectors? I'd seen them regularly on HD 5th wheels, but I was up camping this weekend with my brother and on the way up I saw a HEMI 1500 with a caravan box camper making use of one.

Some of those box trailers are real parachutes..




Thoughts or recommendations?

Oh, I've never seen on e of these things before. Does it make a big difference in fuel consumption? I'm assuming it only really matters if you are towing something that is pretty tall.

I have seen them and would love to have one. The issue is two-fold. It would have to be easy to put on and take off. Then I would have to tow more often.

The tow I just did a report on in the towing section might be real different if I had one on the back of my cap. My tow-hauler is angled at the top but still a parachute with a serious fuel penalty above 60 mph.
