Here's a link to a NASA study of Airtabs:

The real issue is cost vs benefit. For long-haul truckers, even a fractional increase in mpg justifies the expense. (And yes, we often see trucks with Airtabs.) For recreational RVers, it is a closer call -- how many miles would you have to drive in order to break even?

However, if the Airtabs not only increase mpg but also improve handling, then the cost may well be justified. That is a matter of personal preference.


you do know its about 200 bucks CDN to do the back of a travel trailer . we spend more money on lawn chairs [emoticon]

Maybe Airtabs with nitrogen in the tires and dryer sheets you could get say maybe 50 mpg improvement.


Only if you light the dryer sheets on fire and then drop them down your pants.


Now your talking beans first. That would get some hydrogen for a little added thrust.
