Covers for Class B/C RVs

I just bought a 2012 Forest River Solera 24S. When I was getting my vents replaced due to hail damage, I asked the RV place about covers. She said they don't make them for the Class B/C RVs, so I mentioned that I might buy the biggest plastic tarp I could find to use as a cover and tie it down underneath. She said to be careful with a tarp because it can cause or permit mold to grow on the roof.

Is this true? Anyone have any experience with this? If it is true, what do you use if you want to cover the RV when it is outside and you aren't going to be using it for weeks or months?

Thanks,
Karen

Not sure where you went, but my husband just ordered one for our Class C. It is made for the humidity in our area to breathe. We should be picking up shortly. Ordered it from Three Way Campers in Marietta, Ga. On another note, our previous C we did just cover it with a very large tarp. Held it on with bungy cords. Never noticed any mildue etc.

We live in the "swamps" of South Western PA where it is always rainy and muggy. One of the first things I bought was an ADCO cover for a 32' Class C for about $400. Seemed pricey at the time but after 3 years our coach still looks new. It has a breathable fabric and I have never had any mold issues. We camp most every weekend between April and November and I cover it every time we return.

I bought a GoldLine cover for my Rockwood TT, have had it about 6 weeks and seems to be well built. If you have gutter spouts they will need to be covered with tennis balls. Any other sharp objects like antennas will also need to be covered so they don't wear a hole in the cover. I cover mine with a towel, no big deal. The reason a tarp is not recommended is that the material is not breathable. It has the potential to trap moisture and cause mold.
