Need a Cover For My Tall 5th Wheel

I own a Keystone Raptor 300MP and I'm looking to buy a cover. It seems my coach is a bit taller than the average 5th wheeler and I'm wondering if I'm gonna have any problems. Has anybody out there had to buy a cover and had issues with the height of your coach? Mine is 156 inches tall. None of the covers I see online on Camping World specify the height of the product. By the way they are having a pretty good sale right now on all covers.

Welcome to iRV2.

There have been a lot of posts , on the pros and cons of the covers.
A number involve RV surface/decal damage due to cover movement in the wind. There are a number of members including myself who think that proper cleaning and waxing prior to storage, is better than covering.
If you do decide to cover , you would not want a cover that extends to the ground , any humidity that gets under the RV , would accumulate in or on the RV before it vents through the cover fabric.

Well it can't be taller then 13-6'' . I have used a cover for 3yrs with no ill effects . Just make sure it is clean before covering it. It is well worth the protection from the elements . Watch a you tube to give you an idea on how to cover it. If you don"t feel confident with heights don't get one. Be real careful up there so you don't trip on any objects up there.

No,they only last about 2 years they get holes in them very easly. Speaking from experiance . Look on line you can get a good one one about 600 or so that will last you 2-3 times longer then the camping world covers.
