I'm considering a cover. My trailer is metal siding and hail/large hail is common in Oklahoma. Most metal trailers show signs of hail damage with golf ball hail and larger.

Anyone every have an RV cover save them from hail damage?

Question Jayco 1206 - in search of cover (w/ AC unit on top)

I have a PUP Jayco 1206 and we are in search of cover for it. Now, it has an AC unit on top which may make a difference in what I buy...any recomendations...

I'm a motorcyclists first and foremost and I covered my bikes for years outside and swear by them. Yes, you have to batton down the cover from wind, but it's worth the effort to protect anything you love.

His is a "Good" idea. Reason being that by not covering the AC cover makes it brittle and will crack when you pull it off to service the AC.
Had a 07 Airstream lived mostly in SoCal then 1 summer in Vegas. Wanted to do annual service inspection on AC unit. Touched AC hood and it literately fell about where I grabbed it. Worst case scenario would be it flying off while on the freeway/expressway !

Just saying.......

Does an RV carport count as a cover?

Does anyone just use the Adco roof cover vs. the full cover? My main concern is protecting the roof from ice, rain, snow and UV. Have been looking at: ADCO Tyvek RV Roof Cover, 24'1" to 30' - ADCO 36036 - RV Covers - Camping World

Looking for comments/suggestions from anyone that may have one.

I am going to cover my TT. We live in Southeast Missouri and we get it all, intense summers and nasty winters. The campers around here that are not covered looked old and weathered after just a couple of years. I did a lot of research on the different covers and decided on the Camping World All Climate cover. I have not used it yet but if it proves to be junk I will definitely let everyone know.

Here in NW Montana, if seems that it makes sense to cover. We live in a fairly heavy snow zone and the trailer sits unused from October to April. We have had good luck with Adco covers. Putting it on is tedious, but with two of us it goes pretty quickly.

My last trailer took some serious damage from ice one winter. Repaired.

This trailer gets covered!

Installing is a royal pain in the posterior! That much fabric. Any little breeze...

At least the roof (and that dead-zone under the edges of the A/C) will be leaf free and no ice will find it's way under moldings or where the sealant has gone stiff because of the lower temperatures.
