Covers for winter storage?

Does anyone have any recommendations on covers to be used for winter storage?

I live in Wisconsin and will need to store my new Whitehawk for the winter months and am looking for any info on storage covers that may be out there. What to get, what to avoid? Do they move around a lot or cause damage to the exterior of th camper? Any concerns over moisture trapped underneath or do they breath fairly well? Any general comments are greatly appreciated! Thanks!

newguy1-- We've had the tt for 2 winters, had it covered for both winters ( in New Hampshire0-- no rubbing problems. We used tennis balls on the ends of the down spouts to prevent holes in the cover. They can be a pita to put on & off but no acid rain, pine pitch ( in our case) or snow gets to the tt. I will post the brand later today fyi.Larry

Just my opinion, but I am surprised at all the people on here thinking they need to cover their camper, we have had campers for years in our driveway, in Wisconsin and never covered it, never cleaned the roof, just cleared off snow if it built up too much. Nothing bad has ever happened. I would think covering would just cause mildew when it's wet and sun heats it up even in Winter. We are thinking of putting wood in front of wheels where sun hits to help with tire deterioration and may be wash it if it gets too dirty. We will definitely check AC bolts and tighten if need be and clean filter covers on it. We have a lift kit on ours which raises height of camper so if your roof is dirty, it probably wouldn't show as much on ours. Do what you want, but we live in Wisconsin and can store it in driveway so we can periodically check on things, don't know if you are using a storage lot?
