Camper Cover

I purchased a 2109s back in May, and now trying to decide between an RV cover or a carport. I already built a level gravel pad on the side of the house, but am still a little concerned about all the rain and storms we have been getting in South Carolina. Hard to watch a $13,000 toy get beat on every day.

I'm slightly concerned about using a cover because it seems like it would beat on the roof coating pretty good and possible trap moisture leading to all kinds of problems. The carport seems like a much better decision, but also costs a lot more and would really only protect the roof as the sides are still exposed. I really don't want to shell out the cash for sides and everything, so the carport would just be a roof and frame.

I priced the trailer carports a few years ago and it was around $1900. I'd love to have one, just don't want to spend the money I'm thinking I will get a fabric cover because the TT is taking a beating in the sun and rain down here. I also have the same concerns about the fabric cover like you do.

I have a CalMark fabric cover (breathable) that is custom fit for your specific trailer. A little pricey but a six year warranty. I have only used it one winter so far but it worked great. I would love the carport/barn/garage for storage but a 34 foot trailer and the overall height; just can't spring for it.
