wind flap and if you get east coast snow (PEI had 17.66 feet last year) they may now last

bought a new motorhome in 2008. its already looking old, even with lots of T.L.C. bought a cover for it this year for the winter. wish I had done it the first year I had it. If you get one make sure its for the right environment. the one I got is for wind and snow.

Tarps bad, covers better, Pole building Garage best. If you have the level space you should be able to have a pole building built with concrete floor for $10 -12K which will be large enough to house any Sunseeker. Considering the investment in the RV it's not a lot more to be able to keep it looking like new. I had a 32'x38'x14' building done for about 22K which is about 3 times larger than needed for just a Sunseeker but I knew I would find uses for the extra space.

Cover here on a 2251.
Kind of a PITA to get it on but worth it in the long run.
I use it when it sits for a couple of weeks or longer.
Actually I cover everything that sits out- utility trailer and truck.
My stuff stays looking new even afetr 10-15 years.
Worth the cost of buying a cover every couple of years in my opinion.
I get the cost back when I sell them. My stuff usually sells in a couple of days.

I use a cover, just make sure you cover the rain spouts and the rear camera, and any protrusions on your slide awnings. I know from sad experience that the camera will cause damage.

So kinda later ordering in November but I did order a Permapro cover from CW. Called today since its been almost a month to hear "oh that's on back order and won't ship until Mid-February". Would of been nice if they mentioned that when I ordered and they took my $$$.
