We have one of THESE.

We used to have a COVER. It lasted about 3 years. Could've eek out maybe another year, but I was tired of repairing the rips so we went with the RV port.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

We have no choice with our city ordinances but to pay for storage.

The sky. I bought an ADCO cover for ~$400 bucks and used it once. It is simply too heavy and cumbersome for me to re-install. It did a good job of "protecting" the coach over the winter, but I really wish I had saved my money. Ed

I was told and have read on this forum that some covers cause mold and other issues. Generally they cause more issues then they prevent. IMO

I know more owners that store outside/uncovered than any other way.
BTW, I know far more RV owners that bought a fabric cover and only used it once, than owners that used them more than once.

I used an ADCO for 11 years before going F/T. No freeze/thaw or chafing damage. Easy to put on when you follow the directions.

RV Covers

This is where we park ours. Enough side space to extend the slide out about 3/4 the way.

Have tried two ADCO covers on two different Motorhomes. We stored them in Oklahoma ("were the wind comes sweeping down the plains"). If you do lots of repair work on tears and rips after year one, you might get two years....kind of expensive. Yes, they are really heavy and a chore to put on the roof. And with the wind and it buffeting the cover, you will get paint rub spots on the corners. Mold, had no problem.
