Storage Cover

Hi all. We are going to be putting our 40' Winnebago Tour into storage for the first time in 3 years and are looking for advice on what kind of cover to get. It looks like it will be stored outside in the Ozarks of Missouri so rain, some snow, some below freezing temps will be experienced. What advice as far as brand, experience, etc. can anyone offer? Thanks in advance.

Cover

We live just west of St. Louis and just this past year had to put our Discovery outside for the winter. It is too long for our shop. We tried a cheaper brand (forgot the name) and sent it back (get what you pay for). Ended up buying an ADCO brand from Camping World on sale. Normally don't buy much from CW but this price was really good. The cover went on easily with my son helping and it had more then enough straps attached to cinch it down tight. Also had zippers in different areas so you good get inside to work on things. Only issue I had is the neighbors cat started using a corner of it as a scratching post! I fixed that by taping a piece of canvas in that area and never had another issue- with the cat.

If you get a cover, Adco is one of the best. However, I would try to find covered storage. Many covers do more harm than good...they mar the surface or the MH wears a hole in the cover.

Thanks, Cat320. Interesting things to consider. I haven't priced covered storage yet. I will start looking at that option, as well.

No cover. Too hard on the paint, rubs and wears.
