Winter Camper Cover

Hello All, For those of you that store your camper outside and use a cover or storage tent, please let me know some pros and cons and any recommendations for storing my Rockwood 2703WS

Thank you

Because of the high winds we get here I have chosen to not use a cover.
The trailer was built for outside use, I can wash it if it gets dirty.

Probably right, they don't cover them at the dealer, sun is probably more harmful than snow

The factory does not cover them, neither does the transport company.

Outside they sit uncovered till they are bought, for how long, a week a month perhaps six or longer.

Thank you

If you buy one make sure it can breath, some do not and are cheaper, then you have a problem with mildew.

Thank you, I think I will not cover the whole camper, maybe a/c unit and a few other things, don't want to overthink it

Cover it-it will keep all the uv rays off of it all winter-not to mention the ice and snow that will hurt your roof in the long run.It will also help to preserve your window seals along with all (and there's a bunch) of seals on your roof for the ac and such.It will also keep the blowing dirt of the winter from beating on your rig and help to protect the outlets-like fridge and heater and water heater that are vented to the outside.
It's like I always say--Call me collect and tell me I'm wrong.

PS-Don't forget to put Bounce sheets everywhere for the rodents and a big tub of Damp Rid (For moisture control)in the kitchen sink.It'll double it's weight by sucking up moisture-to prevent mold.

Why would anyone spend 20,000 on a TT and not spend 300 bucks on a cover that would protect the rubber roof that cost so much to repair. Not to mention keeping your tt looking new. The sun fades decals, door and window treatments. But I guess each to their own. If you do use a cover make sure you put tennis balls on the rain spouts so that they don't rip the cover. Covers are worth the money of you want your tt to look good for years.
