Looking for Recommendations for a supplier of a cover for our Verona

Purchased a new 2020 Verona 36VSB mid last month (August 2020). Living in Las Vegas Nevada, we rarely have much of a winter to deal with, but UV sun damage can be quite brutal, We store the unit at our home on the side of the house, Fully investigated building an awning to cover the unit but county set backs from the property line made that option not workable. Have heard and read the downsides of a cover and while a concern, I have experienced the damage to a vehicle sitting out year round in the Las Vegas sun... so a cover is the solution we have decided on. Would really appreciate recommendations on a supplier for a cover of this unit. Thanks...

I also looked into a cover for our 2020 Valencia 38RW but opted to rent a covered storage unit in Central FL. We just upgraded from a 26' Winnie Navion which we covered when we would go to FL. The problem was the cover was very heavy and awkward to install but did keep the finish and roof seal from drying out. From the info I read in the documentation supplied by Renegade, they do not recommend using a cover. I did find a company through the internet which will custom make a cover and it was in the neighborhood of $1500.

Paint Damage

Better read manuals. Mine has flier about how a cover will damage the paint. Just imagine how much friction at corners and edges will wear away the gel coat.

From what I have researched, they (Renegade and others) do not recommend covering the RV. Their reasoning is it traps moisture on the top and sides which oxidizes the paint and components in the AC, antennae's, and other equipment, particularly a no-no with solar. I leave mine uncovered.

After many inputs that said "just do not do it" ... I'm trying to figure out how to fit and afford an RV garage...

Seems like the bigger danger of sun damage is to the interior.

For the interior protection, this would be a good time to invest in some Magna Shades all around to reduce the infiltration of UV rays. Curtain/blinds on the inside is good, but even they will be damaged eventually by the constant pounding of the sun. A set of Magna Shades will reduce that significantly.

If you are looking to store it and want something for the inside on the windows, weather tech makes shades for the M2 chassis as well. We have a set for the Verona and they work great. Takes 2 minutes to put up on the inside and no need to pull curtains. They also come with a storage bag. I bought the windshield and side windows kit.
