Rv cover

Do most of you cover your RV in storage?

Mine will be in gravel storage lot, full body paint, in southern California. What's best or recommended?

I bought a cover for ours here in Florida and while I am sure it helps alot for sun protection it was a pain to install and secure from flapping in the wind. Now I make sure the tires are covered and it is waxed with a good quality non silicon wax.

I cover mine and have since new. Most people do not cover. Covers rip at the corners and rip in the wind and can chafe the corners of your rig so say many people.

I am glad I cover mine, each cover last me from three to five years, They have protectwd my rig and hekped keep it new looking. The more I spend the longer they last. I have an Adco Designer cover now. I can get it on and off by myself (easier with two people).

I believe you will find most people do not like them---I like mine fine and when it rips and wears out I will get another.

I never used a cover. Our last coach sat outside for 6 years. Kept it clean and waxed. I did however see the damage the direct sunlight was causing. We are having a steel carport installed for the new coach. After checking into and looking at different ones I found that they are not that costly.

The ideal situation is covered storage. It costs more, but we have a lot invested in these things and IMHO, it's worth it. Covers are expensive, heavy and a general PITA.
