Recommendations for Covering a Dutch Star

We are new to RV's. We upgraded from a 21' Jayco camper to a 38' Dutch Star. I never realized there was so much to learn! We quickly found out that we now own both, a condo and a bus!

We live near Philadelphia, so we deal with the middle North East climate - summer heat typically in the 90's, winter averages low 30's, and regular, but not horrible, snow fall.

Is there a "best cover" out there? What about brands and materials. We want to get something good, but not break the bank, either.

Welcome to the forum.

The topic of covers has been covered before and a lot of folks consider it a real burden to lift it up there and cover the RV. They are heavy and some also state it may scratch the paint. You're better of storing it inside someplace or bring it to Florida for the winter like I do

There are places that offer inside storage if that's not something available where you live.

We haven't heard of any 'good' stories about covering the RV. The covers are difficult to put on and scratches can occur because of constant rubbing on the paint finish.
