    Any experience with "Airtabs" or "vortex generators"

    Hey all:

    Has anyone had any experience or heard of a product called "Airtabs" or "vortex generators". some sort of device you place around the rear of your unit and perhaps even the tw to straighten out your "dirty air" and make it into a straight stream. Concept sounds good but would like to here from some of you Heartlanders out there

    Thanks

    Rick and Debbie Gallant

    I heard of airtabs, but I thought they were for semi trailers only.

    Don't know about "Air Tabs" but do know about "Vortex Generators". They are used on aircraft. Small strips of metal placed forward of the flaps and rudders. They are there to make the air dirty as it travels over the flap and rudder helping flight control.

    I thought "dirty" air was good, tha'ts why golf balls are dimpled. A company now makes a vinyl wrap to add dimples to your car. Read about it here

    I added air tabs to my 05 Outback Fifth Wheel. I didn't see a big difference in fuel mileage but it did feel more stable on the road at highway speeds.
