My 2015 came with ones that say fan-tastic on them. I take it that they aren't the cheap factory ones?

Thanks everyone!! What is the reasoning for covering the wheels?

I'm covering the wheels due to the junk that splashes up during a heavy rain. My 2015 23ikss came with one Max-Air vent cover over the bathroom vent. Didn't see it as standard but the dealer had 3 23ikss's and they all had the max-air over the bathroom vent.

If we put our 23IKSS in a metal building with a cement floor is it necessary to put the cover on it or wheel covers on it?

Just bought a severe weather Camco cover for my 41' 5er for $280.00 delivered from Walmart. Everybody else had prices in the $500.00 range for the same cover. It fit very nice but took 3 of us, a hi-lo and 2 ladders to install with light winds.

My Roo 23SS cover fits perfectly. For under $300 I feel like I'm protecting my trailer from the winter elements. Being in Mass. my trailer will sit unused for the next 6 months. I also wrap the propane tanks, battery box, and hitch with a sheet of plastic and duct tape all around to secure it.

I also live in Florida and agree. Sun will dry & crack the roof seals letting water leak down the walls and eventually destroy the floor. After buying our second toy hauler in January, the very next purchase was the best cover I could find. Small price to protect a new camper. The sun isn't so intense in other areas, but I have to think enough of it will do the same thing.
