Covering camper

I have a 29BHS that I need to cover this weekend and I have never done that. The cover came with my unit. Are there any tricks to covering it?

There is a video on YouTube that shows you how to roll the cover before getting on roof. Basically, place cover on ground, fold one side in, then the other, then roll back to front. Get on roof, unroll front to back, unfold sides. The rest can be done from ground/ladder.

I lay the cover on the ground with the side corners unzippped, then I fold the sides over the top, fold it length ways in thirds, then roll it up.
I bring it up to the roof and roll it out, and unfold it reverse of how I folded it.

Make sense?

YouTube may help too.

I would double check with your dealer if you don't have a built in ladder.
Also, if anyone going on the roof is, um, large, you may want to spread out the weight with a board.

Most roofs are strong enough, but never assume.

Speaking of safety, I found that it is a lo better up there if I put the stabilizers down to keep the trailer from rocking.

RV roofs have a piece of 1/2" thick pressboard every square inch under the rubber or fiberglass covering. You can walk on it.
