RV cover

Downsizing to a new View 24J. Moved & will have no RV shelter as we once did for our Jayco Seneca Super C. Any suggestions on best cover in S TX climate of sun, wind, et al? Thanks.

Three choices I see: Rent a covered storage space,
get a pole building, or buy a canvas Rv cover.

RV covers

Dog:

THAT'S what I was asking: Any thoughts on the BEST cover. I realize the options available to me. Duh!

Inside a building is the best storage cover for your RV as it gives access to electricity and 100% protection from the elements.
Being a full timer, I don't use canvas covers but are known to cause mildew and rub marks against the finish in winds.

I used a canvas cover on a popup trailer and had mildew problems and it gave a raceway from the ground for mice to enter. Cleanup in our wet area in the spring was also a real chore. That experience discouraged me from doing the same with a motorhome. Might think differently if I was in a drier climate and just wanting to avoid sun fade.

On our Class C, I bit the bullet and pay for covered parking @ $115 / month. Don't have room for a structure at home, else I would have one.
