I use a cover for my TT, 28' box. The FL sun will destroy anything, as I'm sure you know. I bought a Goldline cover from National Discount Covers for $550 with a 5 year warranty that lasted about 15 months. When I contacted them they replaced it with a new one, no questions asked. They said it should have lasted longer and the remaining warranty will be in effect so if I need one again I can get another replacement.

The best covers are made from Sunbrella material, had one for a boat that was in good shape after 3 years. Not sure exactly how long one would last, the one I found online cost $1000 with a 6 year warranty. Might be cheaper to buy the Goldline and get 3 replacements during the 5 year warranty period. Wheel covers are a must.

I'd be concerned about corrosion from the salty air. Would definitely have a great coat of wax on the unit. Roof vents opened if they have covers and covers on my tires. Your cab Windows either tint the sides and put a shade in the front or shades all around.
Welcome to the RV World. Lots of great state parks to visit down there.

DampRid. Excellent idea. I like this forum. Fwiw, I picked up a NDC cover for our 32' TT s it sits under some trees in the yard and I really don't want to have to deal with all that junk getting in the stuff on the roof. Love it. It is quite a faff getting it on the first time but if you fold up the sides and then roll to the center it's much easier after that. Just be careful where you step if you get on the roof with it on.

Living in FL is a different case. I've found the humidity level inside the TT is lower if the vents are closed when covered, usually around 50%. Not too impressed with damp rid or the like, probably would need about 10 containers to work. I bought a dehumidifier for the cooler months, not recommended to run one when temp is above 85 or 90 in the TT.
