Question RV Cover Hoist

Has anybody used the EZEE RV Cover Lift being sold at Camping World? It's on sale right now and I'm wondering if it works. The reviews on the CW website are worthless.

Craig, I have an idea, rather than the Club SALE $59.99 SAVE $28, why not save the entire $59.99!

Thanks for the tip, but I was hoping to find someone with actual experience using it...

Craig P. ....I don't have one, but I've found a way to make it easier. My MH is parked in my side yard with a wrought iron fence between the parking area and the rest of the yard. The fence is about 30" behind the coach. I bought a plastic outdoor storage box from Home Depot (approximately 36" L x 24"w x 30" T with a hinged lid), the ones that are tan with a green lid. I bolted it atop my wrought iron fence and added two more wrought iron posts to the other two corners.

With the cover (heavy cloth model) on the roof of the MH, I pull the sides up to the center of the roof so that the cover is now laying the length of the coach in the center of the roof (about two feet wide). I open the lid on the box and slowly pull the cover off of the roof and into the box, folding it back and forth as it fills the box. Since the box opening is almost 8' in the air, the cover goes in nicely.

When I'm ready to cover the coach I climb up my rear ladder, grab the front edge of the cover, and take it up the ladder with me. Once on the roof, I pull/drag the cover back over the center of the roof. This system works well and keeps the cover protected when not in use.

Even if you have a spot in a storage yard, you could simply mount the box on some type of support and use a plastic tub filled with water to stabilize the base.

Don,

Thanks for the tip on the RV box idea. I too have a wrought iron fence behind my RV, but it is about 7" away. I do however store my city owned roll-away trash cans between the fence and the rear of the RV. Using a container as you described, I could place it on top of the trash cans after rolling them up to the back of the coach, and pull the leading edge of the cover up the ladder with me. Hmm...this just might work! How much do those plastic storage boxes weigh, give or take?

Craig
