Winter RV Cover?

We bought a new 2019 Coachman 204RD that we plan on keeping for a while. The trailer is stored outside when not in use. Would it be wise to buy a full trailer cover? I'm considering it but worried about moisture build up under the cover and chaffing from the wind moving the cover against the trailer. Thoughts?

I keep mine in my rv building when at home. Best investment you can make to preserve your rig.

I would do that but even though I'm in the country and have 2 acres of clear land it's on a hill and slopes. It would take a considerable investment in landscaping and the cost of the building. I already had to do that when I built my garage.

A cover will protect it. Probably depends on your winters though.

Up north in South Dakota it was fine. Down there in the south the cover is a highway for rodents.

If I could build one on my property I would. Even though I have the largest lot in my development we also have an HOA that won't allow a second building of this size.

If I could find a decent cover that fits my TT properly, and would last more than a couple seasons based on the reviews I've read, I'll get a cover.

Then again, I might not bother with a cover and just go camping farther south during the winter
