To Duffy. This this is 13 ft high and 40 ft long. It would have to be at least a ten ft ladder. When was the last time you delta with a 10 ft ladder. I think I will look into a shelter.

Shelters only for us ( do not have one of those either yet ) covers only last 3 months here too windy. Other than trying one...... in 30 plus years never covered a trailer & no roof or other issues with annual inspection and maintenance.

I've done it.. but it is a major PITA!!!! First you have to haul the cover up on the roof. That is the fun part. Then you have to unroll the cover in the center of the rig and start spreading it toward the sides. Once you have it dropping off the sides you have to carefully walk back to the ladder without stepping on any skylights or vent covers which you can't see anymore Then you get on a ladder and pull it completely over the sides putting in foam and such so you don't break off any drip guides. Then you have to tie down the cover tight enough to prevent wind from leaving rub marks, which is impossible. Then if you want to use your rig before spring, you look at having to remove the cover and put it back on, so you decide not to use the RV

Then in the spring, you remove the cover which is also a giant PITA, and you have to wax/de-oxidize your rig to get rid of the rub marks.

DON'T DO IT!!! LOL!!!!!

My thoughts exactly. I need a shelter. I plan on using my RV every month so tarp not going to work.

Which cover?

Time to bundle up my 2015 Rockwood Mini Lite 2104S. Living in the Pacific Northwest on the rainy side, I'm in need of a good cover. We did the tarp thing last year, which worked out ok, but a cover would give it a better look for the neighbors to admire, as well as limit the bungee cords used.
We also take a couple of weekend trips in Feb/Mar, so it will need to come off a couple of times, hopefully easier that the big tarp.

Any recommendations on make and model cover will be of great help. Every ad says theirs is the best (DUH), but someone who has been there/done that is a more reliable source!

Thanks in advance and RV on!

We purchased an ADCO All Climate Designer Series cover last year from Amazon. It has held up well and is already on for the season. I like that it has side panels that zip up and allow me to enter the rig and check things out during the year. It seems to shed water well and has air baffles to help keep it from flapping in high winds. It is tan in color and like you I think the neighbors prefer it over a tarp.

We found a used Adco cover on Craiglist and used it for the first time last winter. We put tennis balls on the ends of the gutters and had absolutely no problems with any marks on the camper or rips in the cover. We had a few times of very strong winds and the cover stayed in place all winter.
