Why should I buy an RV cover?

The benefits of an RV cover

  • Protects appearance
  • Protects the resale value
  • Keeps repair costs lower

What does an RV cover protect your RV from?

  1. UV degredation - and UV light causes:
    • Color-fading and breakdown of paint and decals
    • Gel-coated fiberglass oxidizes & loses luster
    • Rubber seals around windows get chalky
    • Tire sidewalls develop cracks
  2. Tree sap, bird droppings, acidic rain - which causes:
    • Staining & paint erosion
  3. Moisture - like rain & snow, where the risks are:
    • Stagnant water freezes and busts open a seam
An RV cover may also deter intruders

Common misconceptions about RV covers

    • Difficult to install

Which is simply not true. If the RV cover is a quality cover, been put away dry & rolled up well, it is a relatively simple procedure - see below

    • Costs a lot of money

Relative to the cost of an RV, a cover is inexpensive and it gives you an excellent return on your investment

    • They can damage the finish

A good cover put on correctly will not damage BUT protect the finish

What are RV covers made of?

  • Polypropylene fabric or polyester, with the layers doubled or tripled for additional protection on the roof section
  • The fabrics are sometimes treated (or formulated) with different water and UV repellants
  • The design must allow for moisture to evaporate otherwise mold and mildew form beneath
Higher-end and custom covers contain different construction materials with more protection and less billowing due to the tighter fit

How to install an RV cover

  1. Get a 2nd person to help, especially when you are on the roof
  2. Use a premade insulator, swim noodle, pipe insultor or tape to cover sharp edges - gutter spouts, antennas, accessories, etc. - so they don't rub against the RV cover material
  3. Take the RV cover up on the roof
  4. Determine the front of the cover (should be tagged)
  5. Roll out towards the back
  6. Roll down sides & front
  7. Climb down
  8. Fasten the cover to the RV
