covering my class C

I am interested in buying a cover for my rv (32 ft Chateau). Does anyone have any experience with these? I'm too old to start building a 6k garage. Any input, good or bad, would be appreciated.
Thanks,
dan

This is one example. There are other brands. Please don't go cheap. Those blue tarps will not stop mold.

Thanks, RVer...I've seen them up to $500 with a 5 yr warrenty also...I'll check these guys out. You're right, a cheap cover could become expensive very quickly.

I have used covers ADCO for many years and have not had any problem with them other than normal wear and tear from years of use. When I would trade or sell the coach, the cover was good enough yet it went with the sale.

I had the dealership throw in an ADCO cover for mine and when I got it home I went to ADCO's sight and they showed how to install the cover. You may want to take a look at this video. They DO NOT show how to remove the cover. I live in Florida and mold is a major factor down here so you should take your local climate into consideration. You also have to remember that removing a wet cover is considerably heaver than a dry one. So my cover sits in the garage still in the shrink wrap... Hope this helps.

Thanks, Dav...I saw a video on how to install one..I'm 75 and the DW says 'No Way' am I getting on the roof to install one. I had a new '86 Allegro for 15 yrs without any major problems as long as I kept it washed and the fiberglass caps waxed. By the time I removed a cover from this one, I'd be so tuckered out, I'd forget about camping and take a nap! I'm in the boonies of Alabama, so the winters aren't too harsh.

Stick with your Allegro plan. Don't fix what isn't broke. And something is going to get broke if you start climbing around the roof with a cover. I another 70 year old who is not planning to use that roof ladder anytime soon.

I cheated. Built an enclosed shed for mine. Just open the door, back it in and say good night.
