Thanks for posting. I will be looking at these myself. I saw them in a post earlier and then lost it.

IMO, covers cause more damage than they prevent.

During winterization:

WASH the camper walls with good quality clear coat car wash.
WAX the camper walls with a good quality clear coat wax.
Clean the roof with dish wash soap.
Get an AC cover to keep leaves and such out.
If you have vent covers you can "crack" the vents for circulation.

Try not to park under a tree, but if that is not possible; then it will be a bit more time consuming to get the roof cleaned again in the Spring.

The wax will keep your decals from peeling, so don't skip this step (ever) no matter how good they look.
X2. I have always been mystified why folks would want to cover something specifically designed to withstand the elements

Now, I suppose if you live in a region that gets lots of snow, parking the unit under a carport might be a good idea, but covers can trap moisture and also provide a nice snug haven for all manner of critters

At Goshen I saw a rather pricy but really cool RV exterior maintenance system. Completely waterless (Herk, I ment to ask your opinion of this - what do you think?)

I was able to contact National Discount Covers and they basically told me to go pound sand. They cannot help me with a cover other than to take whatever it is they have. Pretty disappointed that they could not help me. They must buy them all from China and have no ability to alter the size.

My old cover was a custom one from ADCO. Pretty sure they were made right here in America and all they needed to do was cut the fabric to a large size and then sew it. National cannot do that.

Looks like my only option with them is a TT cover.

It does look like they offer some good fabric though. Oh well.

Vin.
