That's good, a garage/barn with covered sides is better.

My advice sir.. IS to do just that.

You clean an rv perfectly every speck of dust and dirt gone, and put a perfectly clean cover on it.. You might be OK.

But if there is any dirt on either the RV or the inside of that cover.. What you now have is a cover made of SAND PAPER.. Think about it rubbing against the RV as the wind blows and you will understand the car port recommendaiton.

Now. My rig is like 38 feet.. If I took two of the 20 by 12's from Pep Boys, Put 'em end to end and did a bit of stiching at the seam (Add a zipper is what I was considering back when I had a house) and extend the legs (easy, use pipe from the plumbing store) I'd have had a very nice RV-port.

Home is where I park it!

I'm a seasonal traveler so my cover stays on for months at a time and I do not take it off but say four times per year. I have the ADCO from CW. The designer series. There have been many improvements the main one is that the tyvek roofing noe hangs about a foot over the edge and down the side. This prevents ripping at the roof seam which was the undoing of my other covers. it works for me but depending on how you use your rig and how exposed to the elements you are---it makes a difference on how long your cover will last. My rig in storage is sheltered on each side by other RV's (bless their hearts) so I am not buffeted as much by the wind and somewhat sheltered from direct sunlight.

YOu need to consider these factors---but I am glad I have a cover---my rig looks quite new @nine years.

Our Class C Expedition 23-26 ft cover is listed in the Classified Section here on IRV2 under Accessories - Never used... we traded to a Class A before we could use it. Price negotiable.
