Class A soft cover??


I am not able to find a covered spot for my 2015 Itasca class A here in Colorado where the sun is bright and we get snow and hail. I am considering a soft cover but have heard from several owners who abandoned soft covers due to difficulty of use and or wind flapping causing more damage.

I'm curious if there are any members out there who have success stories? My coach has a beautiful full body paint that I would really like to preserve and I'm a little nervous about snow melt and hail.

Thanks in advance for your advice,

Keep looking for covered storage. I found it in a boat dealer's lot.

If you can't find a covered storage place, I would not put a soft cover or any other cover on it. To many problems with chafing and scratches from the wind no mater how tight it is tied down. Another problem is mold under the cover or because of it. Most covers are lucky to last one or two seasons at the most in your part of the country. Look at the units that sit on the dealers lots out in the open for months and sometimes a couple of years. A good cleaning and wax job will do wonders for protecting the finish.
