On or off in about 15 or 20 min twice a year, delays fading and chalking, moisture is a matter of location, roof access promotes inspection and awareness, cover allows easy access to coach while covered, fits in corner of garage in its own bag when not in use.

All a matter of perspective.

I would think a normal one would be what you want, but it should tell you how tall if the they offer more than one. I believe we are just under 13' tall at the top of the AC units.
I'm in the Old Scout camp on covers, can get sketchy to install and remove.

I agree that covers are a PIA. I only plan to use it for storage until my shop is built, then it will be stored indoors.

You could always go to the Alpine Tech site (see sticky above) and look up the coach height, the 1999 brochure (there is no 1998), shows 11 9.
