RV cover for cruise lite 195BH

Has anyone put on an RV cover? Do you have to get on the roof? Can the roof be walked on? I'm a rookie and don't know.

dont know about the cover but have been on my roof several times. just installed some vent covers and checked the caulking. i mainly just crawled around when i get up there because it just feels safer, (i dont care for heights)

Heard sometime ago that the type of roof (rubber coat) may dictate if you can. I would call your dealer service department to find out.

I have a 2014 model of the 195bh and the specs on the website list "walkable roof".
I also got a cover but haven't taken it out of the package yet. I couldn't imagine how you would put it on without getting on the roof.

I've been on mine with no ill effects. What size cover do you buy? I measure the box at 18' but FR says it's 21.5', what do I buy?

I'm guessing that FR might be including the back bumper or the A frame in front.

Got the cover on and it fits fairly well. Of course a cover that would fit 18'-20' travel trailers is gonna be a little large in certain places but it has plenty of adjustments to take up the loose areas. The quality looks excellent.
