Patching a Motorhome Cover

The used 2005 Fleetwood Bounder we just purchased came with a cover. When we spread the cover out in our back yard, we discovered some rips, tears and worn areas. We'd like to patch up the holes before covering the RV for the Chicago winter. The cover is made by Classic Accessories.

I saw a couple of patch kits (one called Tear-Aid and one by Adco) advertised on-line. Are these any good? We would appreciate any tips on the best methods of patching and products you can recommend.

I've found the best method for patching tents and tarps is the material sold by marine supply stores for making the names and numbers on sails. The material is flexible, waterproof, extremely durable and the glue sticks like Grim Death. It is not all that expensive and it's a real rarity - a patch you can apply and forget.

Sewed mine many times. Wife set up sewing machine in garage, and we patch rips. Used heavy duty needles and thread. Used and old plastic coated canvas tarp. When covering the RV look for sharp edges. Items such as exhaust pipe, frame edge underneath, roof antenna etc. I cover with foam or carpet padding. Safe Travels!

I agree. I have patched many a sail and the stuff works great!
