I have a 2014 White Hawk 27RBOK that I bought last July and didn't put a cover on it for the first year - I live in Southern California. This past spring, I noticed the cap is beginning to oxidize and it's only a year old. I waxed it three times in the first year. I recently bought a cover and intend to put it on after each use. I think covers are a good thing if put on correctly and ensure you pad the sharp spots.

Do you possibly have a local fairgrounds that stores rv's, boats, etc during the winter inside?

We just placed a deposit today at one of our local fairgrounds.

What part of Ont are you in?

Thanks for your input everyone! need-a-vacation I live in Oshawa just east of Toronto. I don't know of a fairground near by that stores trailers. It is a great idea though. Looks like I will be going south of the border and get a deal on a some covers for the trailer and wheels! Appreciate everyone's help!

Just in case you need a reminder of our winters here,


HTT was all nice and shiny when we took the cover off for this season.

Maybe try calling a couple fairgrounds and ask. I never knew about it until a friend (when we first met) told me about keeping his boat there.

Wondered if by chance you were up in the Soo area. In Laws have a cabin east of the Soo.

Good luck!

The last winter we had with all the snow and cold weather in to the end of April we got is still fresh in my mind Dagwood. Can't complain though, they're calling it Julyuary in Newfoundland. Single digit temperatures Celsius........mittens, gloves, touques.........Brrrrr!!! Need-a-vacation, I'll call around and see. Thanks again!

I was wondering if the Tyvek covers have fairly soft material on the underside of the cover? Soft enough to prevent scratches on the fiberglass?

Not sure what's under the Tyvek covers, although they are an upgrade from the "Aquashed" ones. I believe the material itself is fairly soft, and they strap down well. Also, once you get your first snowfall it doesn't move much. We'll be going to the Tyvek one after our current one wears out. Haven't had any issue with rubbing, just the wear from the gutter extensions. Now we install a piece of foam pipe insulation on them first.

I would call it soft

I would call the material on the Tyvek covers soft. They are actually two materials, the roof covreing is water resistant while the sides provide sun and dirt protection.

I like the note on the snow holding them in place and my cover has at least a dozen straps to hold it down. I already mentioned the water damage my cover saved me from... I forgot to mention the damage from the one year my rig was not covered in the winter. It was in the shop for electrical work it's first winter so the dealer kept it on their yard. My end cap was curved and after a bad freeze/thaw cycle without the cover on, a sheet of ice slid down the front gouging my decals. The dealer was brutal and refused to repair the damage... one of the many reasons I sold that TT in only it's third year.

Those that have said they can be a struggle to put on... Are accurate. I always take my teenage son along to help out. First time out of the box is actually the hardest. The secret to easier application is actually in the removal. I have my son stand at the back of the trailer and feed the cover into the box, putting the back end in first and working towards the front. That way the next time you put it on you are pulling it up and over the trailer. The way the Ontario camping season goes, you really only do this once a year so the hardships are fairly minimal
