Did you use the Viking Canopy skirt on your RV-12? I have read some opinions that after-market RV-12 canopy skirts do not fit well. Thanks.

I considered the Viking canopy skirt, but then I discovered itís nearly $400 with delivery and decided to do it myself. Iím pretty happy with it and realize that it was more mental than physical and really pretty easy to do in the end. The sanding sucks, but itís not hard, just dirty. Wear a respirator.
