Can anyone give us advise for a cover for our 31 foot class A? It is stored in hot sun with LCD winters but no snow. We are older and getting it up to the roof on on will be a challenge for us but want to protect our MH and not have to purchase one every year.... This is new for us - have had other RVs but have never covered & have had boat covers that failed in sun pretty early. Any advise is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Do not use a tarp. A tarp WILL scratch it! A good quality cover will allow it to breathe, whereas a good tarp will not. Mold growing will not be an issue if you put a few containers of Damp-rid inside there when winterizing. A high-quality cover will be expensive, but worth protecting your investment.

Thank you - that is what we had been advised, and I am a fan of Damp-rid! There are just so many covers out there & each one claims to be quality, but you see them fall apart prematurely & all a person can do is shell out another $400+...... I was hoping someone could steer us to a cover that was made for our conditions & would last.
