RV Covers

Thinking about buying a cover for an older Class A RV but am concerned about moisture/condensation inside of the coach.

I would rather just park the thing under a carport, but that is not an option at this time.

Anybody had any experience with covers either good or bad?

Thanks in advance,

I have used a proper cover for years and swear by them, have never had an issue with moisture issues inside or leaks as well not that I am proud of it have never used the moisture pellets I think that at the cost of them they are worth every penny the best cost per quality I found was at discount covers.com the cover for my 32ft was 200 bucks and am more impressed with the quality then the Adco covers I've used

I did a search for discount covers.com and came up empty as far as RV covers. A lot of rather, um, interesting other crap, but no covers.

I used an Adco Designer series cover with Tyvec for 2.5 years until it disintegrated under the Florida sun. I never had a moisture problem and believe that the UV exposure that destroyed the cover would have otherwise degraded the RV exterior so I figure that I am ahead. I expect to retire in January '14 and intend to have the rig on the road more than in storage next year so I haven't replaced the cover.

I use the Adco cover, too. No problems other than the inconvenience of having a cover and not a full-sized garage. Easy to put on and take off. I roll mine out on the roof and just throw the sides down one-by-one (I think the instructions tell you to use a ladder and move it around the coach); my way is faster. I leave a couple windows cracked in the coach to avoid the moisture problem. \ken
