Question on camper covers

We pick up our new Roo 23IKSS this April. We are going to store it along side our garage which is almost completely shaded from the sun by trees. However, one of the trees has these annoying berries that at one point in the summer starts to shed them. I used to store my boat along side the garage and the boat cover would get stained from the berries when they fell - a dark reddish black color. I'm considering buying an adco rv cover to protect the camper from such stains, but is it realistic to think I can cover my camper in between outings over the summer? We're probably going to be camping every other weekend. How much of a pain is it to put a cover on and off? Also, there is not enough room to install a portable awning or shed - or I would definitely do that instead.

I have an Adco cover and I can have it removed and put away in about 30 minutes. It takes about 1 hour to put it back on since you have to be careful pulling it across the TT. It will tear fairly easy if it catches on something sharp (TV antenna, etc.). When I remove the cover I store it in a large plastic garbage can. If I was going camping every 3 weeks or so I'd just leave it off, anything over that I would put it back on.

So far I really like the cover. It's nice removing the cover and having a spotless TT. One day when I hit the lotto I will have a TT garage like a member on here whose name is Timex.

Cutting down the tree would be less work! Or at least prune it back where it covers the parking spot. Good luck!

If you have the little gutter extensions, buy yourself some tennis balls to put over them. If you don't, they will poke through the cover before you've even gotten it fully on. (Voice of experience - Adco cover).
