Cover or not?

We won't be able to keep our a-frame in the garage. Is it best to cover it, and if so what are recommended covers? We live in Colorado, so the sun is strong and when we get rain it is usually a downpour, and snow can be heavy. Otherwise, we are dry. Thoughts?

We got an adco with tyvek on top. The original top material on 1st cover disintegrated in 6 months. (South Florida). The new one seems to be holding up well and really not that pricey.

I've got one for sale that I got when I bought my A128, that I've never used. I store my trailer in the garage. It should be big enough for standard S-models (maybe not HW) with storage trunk. Here's a photo showing it wrapped around the propane tanks.

It has two small repairable tears at the back, otherwise in good condition. I think it is this one for 16' - 18' Trailers:

50 bucks? I've also got tire/wheel covers that I'll throw in. Shoot me a PM if anyone is interested.

I use a ~$30 20'X8" white tarp to cover my camper. It protects from the propane tank to about 3 feet down the back of the camper. It is only slightly wider than the camper, so I use PVC spreader bar to make sure it doesn't drape over the sides and hold in heat. In addition I have a foam box to protect the front roof windows that lift it up a bit higher. I use the same tarp to cover the kayaks I store on the west side of a fence in my sideyard.

The camper cover has lasted a bit over a year, but is now leaving small flakes due to deterioration. So it's time to replace it. One of the things I like about the tarp is that I can easily open the door with it on.
