If you store you RV outside for long periods, you should consider a durable all-weather RV Cover like this one.
The folks at EmpireCovers.com asked me to review their waterproof Premier RV Cover. I waited until it had been raining for a few days to see how it performed. The water actually pooled up on the roof of my RV which was a clue that the waterproofing was working. Overall, it performed pretty well as you can see in the video.
If you are considering a cover for your RV, travel trailer or fifth wheel do you self a favor and invest in a cover that will last you many years. less expensive ultra-thin lightweight covers are intended for short term use and simply won't hold up to long term abuse by mother nature. Invest in a quality cover that offers the maximum protection and you will have it for years and years.

Here Are Some RV Cover Tips
- Wash your RV before you cover it, because it's always nice to unwrap a nice shiny RV
- Wait until it is dry before you cover your RV (if possible)
- Remove or cover any sharp objects on your roof or sides such as solar panels, antennas, etc.
- Tie a rope to the bag and lift it up to the roof instead of trying to carry it up the ladder with one hand
- Be careful where you step, your cover will cover up things you shouldn't step on
- Check exhaust pipe or hot vent location before starting your engine, running your header or generator to avoid burning a hole in your cover
- Finally, make sure you unzip any necessary side panels before expanding any slides.
