We keep ours in our back yard. The sun is a factor here in Ga. so when ever it is not in use, Peggy and I keep our White Hawk under a breathable cover. When we get home from one of our trips I clean the exterior and cover it. Uncover the day before our next trip, to get it ready to go. I would like to get a metal car port instead of the cover, but right now the cover is the best we can do.

Ours is next to the house connected to power but not covered. I would like to know where can I get the breathable cover. I would love to have it under a metal car port but where we are the county regulations are very strict. Thank you for any info and have a great camping time.

Enclosed is ideal. Do you mind if I ask how much it is a month?

Currently it averages out to a little under $40 a month. It is a bit more in the winter and then less in the summer. Most of the trailers are pulled out in the summer. I think it is worth it to keep indoors.

Ours stays outside at our seasonal site year round and doesn't have a shade tree within 100 yards of us. We considered having a carport installed to cover our camper and deck, but to be wide enough (26') and long enough (52') they wanted right at $8000, plus probably another $1000 to have the ground brought to grade. Since we rent the site, we decided against that option. Figured we have had campers for nearly 25 years, have never kept them under cover and knock on wood, we have never had a roof problem. Don't get me wrong, I would love to keep it covered, but have to think they have built campers for many years, and the vast majority are going to be exposed to the elements most of their useful lives.

Wow, $40 what a deal! Hell yeah that's worth it. I don't think that I can find a 30'+ enclosed site for less than $200/month here in SA, TX. I hope I'm wrong.

DH built an metal RV port behind our gate which we park the TT and boat under. It is a 22' x 38' takes up the all the available space on the side of the house. We get very high winds in AZ so we needed to keep it pretty open but still be able to shade the toys. Our sun is brutal here. No way can we go with any bigger TT or other and still park it on the side of the house. We like having it close by.

The sun at our 9000' home is a killer, so I built a drive-through shed or barn for our camper. The tires sit on wooden planks. However, we now spend winter months in AZ, so it is exposed to desert sun about five months of the year.

Ours stays indoor when not in use. We have indoor storage (w/electric and water) down at the lake that we frequent. It's a 12x40 storage unit that costs $600 per year. Well worth it in my opinion.
