RV Cover

We'll be parking our new Wolf Pup in our driveway, is it advisable to purchase an RV cover? I know if you cover a motorcycle outdoors it promotes moisture. Feedback is appreciated from those in the know...

Your RV is made and designed to be outdoors to the elements. A cover can promote moisture retention, some covers are designed to breathe, but will cost more. Another danger to covering is in windy conditions, you can get some movement of the cover and cause some rubbing against the finish, thereby doing more harm than just leaving it exposed. Or if dirt or sand gets underneath the cover and is rubbing between the cover and the finish, then that will do a lot of damage.
The key is to protect the finish by keeping it clean, and waxing will go a long ways to protecting the finish. Many of us here will wax at least a couple times a year.
Do you cover your car all the time?

I just covered mine to protect it from the sun since I won't get to use it this summer. I spent the money and got a good one. I was skeptical, but it survived a Vegas wind storm and didn't tear or damage my trailer. The sun out here will do a number on our decals.

That does look like a good fit Evo. Did you pull your batteries and propane since you won't be using it? I will have to send you a pic of the locking battery brackets I got.

The roof seems to be the same material as the side, just a different color.

Spend the money and get the best cover you can!Nothing looks worst than a faded RV and it don't take long for it to start looking bad
