Covering a silverback

I an planning on covering my silverback for the winter. Does any one have any ideas for protecting the cover from the rain gutter extension and/or protecting the rain gutters from the weight of the cover?

Use the foam pipe insulation (from Home Depot) cut longer than your gutter spouts. Don't forget to insulate all sharp objects before your place your cover on your trailer. (steps, ladder, etc)

I have covered all the trailers i have ever had. The covers make a big difference in saving your trailers decals and finish. I do not camp in the winter months so mine is covered for 5-6 months. The biggest con is putting on. But well worth it. As far as type i have numerous classic covers over the years and for numeroustrailers. I think they fit well and are of good quality for the price.

If you only are able to protect teh roof membrane that's a grand saved over how long 8-10 years. The payback is roughly 3 years. A no brainer!

Pool noodles, pipe insulation and tennis balls strategically placed over sharp edge and "pointy outey" things keeps from ripping you cover.

The better ones use tyvek or another breathable membrane on at least the top portion.

Get it snug to prevent wind flapping, which can abrade corners.

I just ordered a Camco cover for my TT. It has flap openings the supposedly reduces wind lift.

We shall see if that's true.

My TT has fiberglass/plastic end caps and I plan to try some decent thickness "cling wrap" on the corners to try and give a little extra protection from wind rub. Kind of like the stuff you see on new cars when they are delivered.

Throw in some tire covers while you are at it.....
