RV Cover 100% waterproof

I am looking for a good cover for my Class C RV, would like it to be 100% waterproof.

Would like to hear from you, I don't want to waist my time & money on junk covers

Thanks in advance

Dan

You probably don't want it water proof or it will get moldy underneath. I was looking at them and think a breathable cover to keep the dust off is best.

Cover

From what I have read so far, even the 100% waterproof covers are vented

I have a CalMark Sunbrella cover that I bought in 2006. It is not water tight. But our MH looks like new after 7 years. Covers are a lot of work. They do work.

X2. In my experience a waterproof cover can be worse than no cover. Mold & fungus growth can be substantial

2 or 3 times putting a cover on and you will be sick of it.

We had one for an apache hard sided popup trailer that was not water proof. The roof grew green algae that was a bear to scrub off, mice used the edges as a raceway to get in, and mildew resulted inside. Never again; I parked the class C in a rented pole building.
