I cover or I don't !!!

I live in Maine and I'm not getting younger, plus I have health issues. I was wondering if I should have someone climb up and put the cover on my 2016 Hybrid for this coming winter, or should I leave it alone......



Folks who live north , do you cover your camper ?


Thanks
Dre

Cover

I have wondered the same thing, I do not cover mine and I have not seen anyone cover theirs around here.

Iíve driven past tons of places and Iíve noticed one thing in common...RV dealers anywhere North of the Mason-Dixon Line never cover any of their inventory.

What you do after you buy one is your decision.

I would say the vast majority do not, but there are some that do and swear by it. I do not live that far north but in 35 years of camping I have never covered ours. Personally the best and only cover to use has a roof. (Either tin or shingles).

I cover mine when it's not in use. It is stored outside, and the desert sun is brutal. Also, we get snow in winter so I want the extra layer of protection that provides. It literally takes an extra 10 minutes or so to put the cover on or take it off, by myself.

That is why I only special order new and would not buy out of inventory.

May I offer this: I have a daughter who lives in Fairbanks, AK. and I go up as often as I can, but not often enough as I want to. I have been there in the deepest of winter and when we travel around town I notice that many, a lot of, RV's are covered by a big ole' blue tarp (can you say Harbor Freight type). Even the RV storage place up there has units covered with BIG blue tarps. I have seen the people at the RV storage places and private homes up on top sweeping off snow. Guess the snow weight is a problem. Knowing that the Fairbanks area gets what they call "dry snow" I wonder if those in Maine get dry snow or wet snow which would be a different problem

Kinda like the winteriztion debate,antifreeze or blowing lines with compressor or both. Me I do both and have covered my MH every winter. Since a roof/building to store it in is not going to happen , a cover is my best bet. Gets kind of nasty out there when the temps drop in southern New England

Kind of a tough call. We live in central Indiana so our winters aren't as severe as yours normally, but I have never covered any of our campers...2 pop ups, a hybrid ,or our current travel trailer.
Actually, our dealer's service mgr advised against covering because of the issues it can create. Rubbed spots on the roof are the worst problem.
I just make sure the roof caulking is intact and go for it. To be completely accurate, our dealer inspects the roof. I'm getting older too and I'm not getting up there.
