First time trying RV cover

So when we bought our 2004 fifth wheel last November we also bought a cover, so now I finally tried putting it on by myself, don't care for heights, so used three ladders and got it done.
Shall see how it holds up.


Live life with no regrets.

rv cover

take the extra time to make sure it is tight. My earlier class C tore the straps loose and the cover came off (in January). added extra grommets to the bottom.

You will find areas that will billow in the wind causing the cover to rub on corners of things like air conditioners, steps, etc. If you can isolate some of them you may save a hole or two in the cover. I always cusioned those areas with things like old bath towels. The rubbing will also do a bit of scuffing on the paint in sensitive places. I suggest that running a rope completly around the camper just ahead or behind the roof mounted airconditioner and cinching it up will take in some of the slack and save a bit of rubbing. Also make sure none of the lines or straps are touching the ground. With the melting and refreezing of snow during the winter they tend to get frozen to the ground. Impossiple to remove until the spring thaw. Another problem with covers is the snow will stack up on the top. This makes it nearly impossible to remove in the dead of winter. If you have any plans of heading south after that first snow, you are better off removing the cover now, or you won't be going!
