Hi Byron & WELCOME!!
You picked a nice coach to start your new lifestyle with! That is one that I looked at, when I was hunting for a MH.
On my old TT I used a tarp, without issue, but moved to a cover when I realized that the shaded side was turning green. The cover was on sale and solved that issue. After that, when I uncovered the TT, it was the same color as when I covered it
Post photo's, when you can. We love looking at them.
Also take a look at the Vintage threads. Lot's of good information there!
