The magnetic bug nets really worked well, and they are quite easy to make with a bit of nylon window screen, a few magnets and some duct tape.

Keeping cool and bugs out wasn't a problem for me. The problem was keeping warm as it went below freezing.



Would a Little Buddy Propane heater work? I have seen people use them in Vans and I bought one for my suburban (haven't had to use it yet though, but those spaces are bigger. Wonder if you could post it up on your arm rest up front and heat the cab.

I made mine with velcro. I'd like to see yours with mags if you can post some pics.
