A good quality travel trailer cover provides much needed protection for all weather changes. If you don't use your RV very often, investing in one is well worth purchasing.
If you only use your RV during the Spring and Summer, your camper sits in the cold weather temperatures during the end of Fall and the Winter climates.
An RV cover will pay for itself for the protection it will provide against the heavy weight of ice and snow,
the damage of roof leaks in wind storms,
damage sustained from debris of tornadoes and hail beating it up.
If you only use your RV in the Fall and Winter months, one will protect against the UV rays of the sun.
Heat can build up on the roof of your travel trailer and cause damage on the rubber coating. It can also cause fading of your decorative designs.
The sun and it's heat can deteriorate your screens and the roof vents can get brittle and begin to crack. All the covers for the water spigot and electrical cord can get brittle and break.
A thin covering will be sufficient for a short period of time. These are very cheap and will not last very long. The sun will deteriorate it in just a few months time.
A waterproof canvas can also help keep your RV clean and mildew free. It will be protected from rust and help keep your pipes cooler in the hot weather and keep them from freezing in the cold weather.
You can get one that is not very expensive, but don't get a real cheap one. A travel trailer is an investment that you will want to enjoy for years to come, so make sure you get one that is sufficient for the protection you need, depending on the environment of where you live.
You can get one at any dealership. They may have to order it, but they are made specifically for your make and model camper, so it is a nice fit. You will be glad you paid for the weatherproof one that repels water and ice.
A good quality travel trailer cover will save your roof, vents, air conditioner cover and seals around the roof.
It will also protect your awning and seals around the bottom of your camper.
These are a good investment and are worth the money if you leave your camper parked for extended amount of time or if you park under trees.
