Cover on a Skylark

We have a 2012 Skylark that has non glass windows. I'm concerned the cover will scratch the windows, we live on the ocean and with the salt and wind, I'd like to cover, but don't want to reduce visibility on the Skylark windows. Any thoughts, and suggestions???

I would not worry about covering an RV.. they are meant to be outside.. if the tarp is not made for you RV and if you are not meticulous in securing it then you will have rubbing problems... more people I know sweat at them than swear by them..

Why do they sweat at them, Seann45? Do they make you hotter? :hihi:

Me thinks Seann has a wild index finger. The R and T are somewhat close on the keyboard. That's Ok Seann, we know what you mean.

Cars and trucks are meant to be outside too, but you can sure tell the difference between ones that are kept in the garage and ones that aren't. I may swear at the cover occasionally, but it sure is nice to have a camper that looks brand new rolling down the road.

I skip the cover and apply wax at least once a year.

My trailer is 9+ years old and looks great.

Covers are not the only solution.

Hey Russel, may I ask what kind of wax? I have decided to go that route.
regards, Dave

I've had good luck with Star Brite fiberglass boat wax.

I used to buy it at Walmart, but they no longer carry it.

Last purchased at West Marine.
