Your pictures are great, but want to worn you of a possible problem. When I bought my first camper in 1984, it came with literature that said not to use a cover on the unit if being stored outside unless you make sure no tall weeds or tall snow will be allowed against it. I stored the camper out side without a cover until 2005. Sold the camper to a person who put a cover on it and allowed snow to drift up against it. In the spring when the new owner opened up the camper, it was full of mice, and they had done too much damage to save the camper. With the tall snow against the cover, it gave mice the ability to crawl up inside the cover and and find many ways to get inside the unit. Through the water heater hatch, fridge vent, etc.

Just want to worn you and any others who use covers.

Great point, and for some this is a really valid concern. But ours lives in a paved storage lot just south of Charlotte NC so the chances of snow accumulating up to the bottom of the cover are pretty slim. Plus even if it did, it would melt by lunchtime 😀

We didn't have a cover on our previous units and even with waxing etc. the Florida sun chalked the finish and peeled decals, the Roo is now covered and when we pulled the cover off this last weekend ready for Memorial weekend, she is like new. Well worth the investment.
