In most cases, today’s Recreational Vehicle (RV) is considered a 2nd home.
Unfortunately, that 2nd home must be stored for extended periods of time. exposed to Mother Nature’s wear and tear. Ultraviolet radiation from the sun, air pollutants, snow, dirt and dust all take their toll. The damage will be easy to see. Ugly black streaks, almost impossible to remove, will mar the painted surface. The beautiful exterior surface will fade quickly and you can expect some serious roof repairs after about the second year.
Covering your RV is the best investment you will ever make.
If it is just to keep it clean and ready to go for your next outing, a cover is the only way to go. More importantly, a good cover will prevent all of the damage mentioned above and many years down the road the RV will look as nice as the day you bought it.
PLASTIC TARPAULIN RV COVER
NEVER use a plastic tarpaulin to cover your RV. REMEMBER heat rises. RVs have to breathe. Blue plastic tarps ARE NOT BREATHABLE and will cause severe damage to the inside of your RV. You would be much better off not covering it at all. RVs have walls and if the foul air or condensation has nowhere to go, it remains within the walls and eventually you will experience dry rot and black mildew.
