Roof only rv cover

We have a 30 foot Winnebago Aspect 27k class C without your traditional cab over and we want to buy a cover for it to protect it during the winter months. We live in NJ and get our fair amount of storms including noríeasters. The full cover is great and protects all around the rv but makes it hard to check under the hood for critters chewing wires, and moving the coach back or forth so itís not staying on the same part of the tire all winter and running the engine and generator periodically. So weíre thinking about the roof only covers. I donít see many models sold so Iím wondering what the forumís recommendations/experiences have been with the roof only covers. Thanks for your feedback!

I used to cover our previous coach, but it was bare gel-coat with vinyl graphics, and the cover definitely kept the oxidation down.

But, when I started researching a cover for our new coach with full-body paint I found cautions regarding the constant flapping actually wearing through the clear-coat and paint. We have plenty of wind here, and having watched the cover on the old bus flutter constantly, I decided against one for the new coach.

Even with a top-only cover the straps down the sides will flutter and may damage your paint.

My thinking is a good wash, wax or sealer, and tire covers may be the best way to go. And making sure all the window coverings (hopefully blackout) are closed up tight to protect the inside.
