Shrink wrap for Class A Winter storage?

Does anyone here have any experience with having their MH shrink wrapped for Winter storage? Pro's, Con's?

I can't speak to the cost or effectiveness. I have seen very large boats totally shrink wrapped for transport, so I suppose it can be done if you can find the material and/or installer. My comment is that I would think it cheaper and easier to rent a storage building for the season, or buy a RV cover. The shrink wrap is only good for one use, right? Also, you would preclude any access to the coach during storage.

Would you want to get in it while stored?
Seems a little tight to me---could it breathe?
Would it cost more or less than a cover?
I've never seen/heard of a shrink wrapped MH---boat yes------usually for shipping not for storage.

The boats that we see shrink wrapped are for travel only. If you leave shrink wrap on anything too long, condensation will form under it, then mold, etc.

I own a Marina here in Ontario Canada and we shrink wrap probably 200 boats for winter storage. I also own a motorhome. I would suggest you try and find someone with some reasonable inside storage or outside covered storage. I found a farmer that had some room in his building where he stores his Combine and I have our pusher inside for $350. If you decide to have someone shrinkwrap be sure it is well vented! As CAT320 pointed out you will get alot of condensation if it is not properly vented.
