Question Custom Coach Covers

Who makes a good custom cover? How custom are these covers and are some abrasion resistant? Opinions on brands and what to look for

Methinks more owners have a cover and have only used it once... than have one that they used more than once.

Stored outside "covered" for 1 Wisconsin winter, (and 18 "uncovered").

My coach cover is wash and wax. Waxed twice a year. I even sold a brand new, in the box, cover that was in the rig I now have. I am talking about old rigs too. 1st a 1992, 2nd a 1990 now a 1996. Wax and elbow grease.

Covers are a lots of trouble...expensive, big, heavy, cumbersome, dirty, hard to get up and on the roof, hard to put on, rub spots on the RV/get holes rubbed in them, have to store them someplace when using the RV, etc. Covered storage is much better and worth every penny.

I think it depends on the size of your coach.Mine is small
so it's no trouble to put on ,and take off.Also I tie mine down
so there is no rubbing after a year of use.
