RV Covers

I am considering the purchase of an RV cover for our new 390BH but am wondering about the weight of the cover and how difficult it will be to raise it to the roof and deploy. Any advise or comments? Thanks!

Our friends use one on their 30' motorhome (which is our old rig and is parked next to my garage). He doesn't seem to have much trouble putting it on. Does keep the rig nice and clean over the winter though. If I stored an RV outside I would definately have one.

Have had a cover which I purchased from Camping World for 2 winters. If you are covering by yourself, it could be a hassle. My son usually comes over to help me. We usually put the whole cover in a pile at the rear of the rig and pull it over towards the front(we are on ladders-one on each side). I like it covered in the winter to protect the seams on the roof and keep the snow off. Not sure if in NC you need to worry about the snow but you do get the ice which could cause problems.

When they come from the factory, they are rolled up nice and neat in the little box. Start on the roof, roll it front to back, then drape it over the sides. The smart guy will roll it back up in a similar fashion for storage, and remember which end goes toward the front for next year.

When I remove mine I roll it up I lay it out on the ground and roll it up from front to rear. I then store it in a big plastic garbage can that has wheels. When ready to cover in fall, I roll it to the rear and dump it out of the garbage can and knowing that the front part of the cover is on top, start pulling it over the motor home.

Just be careful on those windy days.
It was a windy day the first time I was removing my cover and it almost took me with it.

What is an approximate weight of a cover? I am trying to decide what to cover my 28'bh with. Can two 70 yo women manage it?

To pile onto pondlady's question - got any idea what type cover to get? I know that they come in various grades? We don't get much snow in the Raleigh area but do get rain and sun.
