RV Cover Poll

There have been some questions on RV covers over the years, so its time for a poll. To cover or NOT to cover, that is the question. Multiple choice poll. Discussion welcome.

We`re talking about the fabric covers you buy and put over your RV here, not garages, poll barns etc.

Although I don't put a cover on my travel trailer, I do put covers over the A/C and the tires. I also take heavy duty plastic garbage bags a put them inside the access covers to the fridge and the water heater, close the doors then trip off the excess. All to keep the snow, rain and other crap out of there during the off season. Other than that, it spends it's life outside right next to my '48 Willy's Jeep.

Crabman,

Not sure how I should answer, I just bought a cover, but haven't put it on yet?

RV Cover Poll

Jaybird, what makes you question your decision to cover?

We purchased ours off Craigslist and the previous owner provided us with a cover. Although we are storing ours under a canopy, still think its a good idea to keep the reminates of winter off it with the cover.

I'm concerned with the few light "scuff" marks that we noticed when we opened it up this spring. I'm guessing we didn't have it tightened down properly. Operator error? hahahaha It still feels like the logical thing to do is cover.

We have a lot of strong winds in our area, and scuffing would be a significant problem. Therefore, no cover. We are looking into the idea of building a roof-only shed to put it under, just to keep snow and sun off, however.

RV Cover Poll

I don't cover. Wash twice a year to keep the trailer looking nice. Hate to fight with covers. Also like having my trailer ready to go without a lot of effort. We camp year round. I live where there is little to no snow and that might make a difference on whether a cover would be helping to protect the trailer in some way.

I don't even cover my tires. I know about the dry rot concern. I plan on changing all the trailer tires every 3 years. I would rather keep fresh tires on the trailer than to have a blowout and the damage it could cause plus potentially ruining a trip. Maybe overkill?
