You can cover it and it will help some.

But a couple of things I look at first off the factory does not cover them for how ever long they sit there before being shipped out.

No dealer I have been to covered any RV in the lot, no telling how long they sit there before being sold.

The lite sits outside with the shades closed and tires covered the rest of it is out there.

At the end of the season I give our Roo a good cleaning then cover it for the winter. In the spring the cover comes off and its just as clean as it was the previous Fall. IMO it is well worth the effort. We have an Adco Tyvek cover.

We own a 29' Wildcat TT that we keep in Seattle. We just purchased a $500 cover for it as we do not want it sitting for 6 months in any locale without protecting it. For the RV we have at home in Iowa, we built a 45' metal pole building to keep it out of the weather. Do we believe in protecting our RV's in the off season---ABSOLUTELY. I say----- COVER IT!!!!!

I too like to cover my RV. Just like protecting it from the sun and elements the best I can. If I had a garage that it would fit into, I would gladly keep it in there.
