I was thinking of using it to keep the dog from going under the van, just wondering how the skirt clips to the van.

Ours slides into a rail that came attached to the side of the van. It is in two pieces one before the wheel and one after the wheel. The wheel arch has press studs that the third piece fastens to. I cannot say how the one you mention is fastened to the ground as I made ours myself and put eyelets that take tent pegs at the lower edge. You could also make it long enough to put stones or pieces of wood on it to weigh it down. I used an old PVC coated tablecloth and a piece of clothes rope to make the skirt. I would take a picture but "Doris" is not here today. Will try tomorrow

The one you link uses press studs so would require drill and screw of the male part to your van.

We fashioned our awning draft skirt from a former pvc ground sheet from our tenting days. This is fixed to the van with the Kampa Limpet™️ fix system. Make appropriate holes along the length and attach Limpet and fasten to smooth surfaces along the van. We recently acquired a Kampa Air Awning which uses this type of patented fixing vertically to the side wall.
