RV Covers

It is important to have your RV covered and protected during storage and non-use, but how do I choose the right cover? You will base your cover decision mainly on the environment where your RV will be stored. This guide will go over the properties and qualities of the major RV cover materials and give you the ability to make an informed decision.

First you will choose a cover that fits your category of RV or travel trailer: 

Class A Class C 5th Wheel Travel Trailer
Class A Cover  Class C Cover  5th Wheel Cover  Travel Trailer Cover
Pop-Up Trailer Hi-Low Trailer Truck Camper
 Pop-Up Trailer Cover  Hi-Lo Trailer Cover  Truck Camper Cover

Once you have determined what type of cover is needed, your storage environment will help you decide what type of material is needed. There are two different types of material used in the production of RV covers.

Basic Guidelines:

SFS AquaShed: recommended for locations with moderate sunshine and intense moisture.

Tyvek: recommended for locations with intense sunshine, intense moisture, snow and/or long term storage.

SFS AquaShed: Recommended for climates with more rain than sun, Northeast and Northwest. Protect your investment and provide triple the protection compared to standard covers. High performance polypropylene sides insure maximum breathability and virtually eliminate mold and mildew. Triple layer SFS AquaShed top panel beads water on contact for maximum resistance to high humidity and rainfall in addition to protection against UV rays.

Tyvek: Recommended for climates with Intense Sunshine, Intense Moisture, Intense UV Rays and Dusty Environments, Midwestern states, Southern states and Mountains. Tyvek protects your coach from harmful UV rays as well as dirt, dust, rain, pollution, bird droppings and tree debris. High performance polypropylene sides ensure maximum breathability and virtually eliminate mold and mildew. Two layer Tyvek RV top panel contains microscopic pores that resist water and allow trapped moisture to evaporate from within.

All that’s left to do is determine the size of your cover and you are ready to store your RV knowing that it is fully protected from the elements in your area.

There are a few guidelines for each class of cover that when followed will provide you with the best fitment for your rig:

Class A -  Include ladder, bumpers and spare tire but exclude ground clearance when measuring RV to determine length needed for proper fit.

Class C - Include ladder, bumpers and spare tire but exclude ground clearance when measuring RV to determine length needed for proper fit.
