Rv cover purchase help

2021 Jayco Jay Flight 265rls

•Specs say 31 ft overall length
•Specs say 14 inch tires

Living in a very dry climate with extreme heat and often high winds. [Nevada] Will store RV for about 6 months. [Open land storage.] Storage months Nov thru April so temps won't be too extreme but winds will be persistent.

I'm not sure what length to use for purchasing? I think the towing hitch is included in specs length.

Any particular BRAND preference?

RV COVER
TIRE COVERS

Thanks in advance for your guidance.

Whoever you’re ordering from should tell you what to measure to determine what size to get. I think most are sized for the “box,” and do not include the hitch. I’d err on getting a little too large than too small.

I have an Elements All-Climate cover for the winter. Our weather is similar to yours and it has held up well in winds and rain. I have a second, lightweight RV Masking cover for summer if we’re not on the road and really like it. Here’s a link to other posts and threads about covers… https://www.jaycoowners.com/forums/f...4bh-90865.html

There are so many threads on covers and a search using the search bar at the top of the page will bring some up. In your case I would give it serious consideration as the winds there will cause the cover to move and wear on the finish. While expensive if you want to save the finish you almost have to go with covered storage.

Not to be argumentative, but you might want to ask others in your area with covers how it has affected the finish on their rigs. While our winters aren’t constantly windy, we get our share and I’ve noticed no wearing of the finish in three years on ours. My cover is heavy enough that it stays put on the roof and the only parts that move in a wind are nearer the ground where it doesn’t rub on the trailer. If it’s raining while windy, it moves even less. YMMV.
