Okay, so it sounds about 80% that it would be a great idea to cover my trailer. Now then, what cover/series/make/type should I get? I believe it should be breathable, and water resistant. Again, this is in NYS where the snow gets 5-7 feet at times.
Thanks in advance.

My DW found an adco would soot us. Make sure you measure your box size and get the one closest to that size, we got ours too big and it flaps in the wind. The cover that came with the camper had a ladder zipper, this adco does not, makes it a lot more difficult to get on the roof with the cover on. Also no matter what you do they will rip and tear due to wind, the gutters getting poked through etc. ours did come with bags to fit over the gutters to prevent tearing but I was constantly putting them back on. One more thing this cover came with wheel covers. Good luck

I started covering last year. I was surprised how good the trailer looked when I pulled the cover this spring. Just like when I covered it. The cover, not so much. Pretty dirty and stained. No problems with chaffing or holes being worn in the cover and it looks like it might last several years. Only problem is putting it on and off. Just doing it once a year is ok but I would not want to do it on any regular basis.

I keep going back and forth on this topic, but what I always end up with is this: I used the TT winter, spring and now summer since I've owned it. I have plans to use it for the fall and again in the winter and spring (it doesn't snow much around here, so camping year round isn't a problem if you don't mind rain).

If I were to cover the trailer, I'd bet dollars to doughnuts that when I wanted to take it out for the weekend the cover would be wet, and then I'd have no place to lay it out to dry, so it would end up full of mildew.

So I guess no cover for me (though I will get covers for the AC and tires).

I'm with you but was a bit shocked by the price of some covers...

I just invested in this carport for mine. Some day I want to build a large shop big enough to store my RV but for now this will have to do. It should keep most of the sun and rain off. Plus every time I see a potential hail cloud my blood pressure goes up.

That's a nice looking carport, it sure will help to protect your trailer. Did you assemble it yourself?

It was only a few hundred dollars more to have it installed so I had the company do it. They sent out a crew of 3 guys and they put it up in 3 hours. The only complaint I have is they dropped enough screws on the ground to put up another building.

VERY cool! Did you buy from a national chain or local? I *might* be able to fit a slightly smaller version of that in my side yard... I hate having my camper sitting in a parking lot exposed all winter.

It was a national chain. Coast to coast carports. It is a 18x36 with 12' side walls.
