Airstream Cover?

Hello,


Does anyone know if you can find a cover for an airstream?

Would like to keep out of the elements of the off season.

28' Overlander






Thanks,



Jay

I'm sure others will soon chime in, but the prevailing wisdom is to never cover an Airstream. It will do more damage than good.

You sure can cover it if you want to but most feel it will scratch the skin and not breath properly. Of course, a lot of this is speculation as most people do not have any real experience with it, just what they believe will happen and it could be true. My 81 is out in the good Ole winter freezing temps right now air and I don't think water, ice and snow are really hurting it too much. might even be preserving it. At least it looks the same every year.
What is your reason for wanting to cover it anyway? Summer sun makes more sense than winter to me but would not do it either way. Shade is a different story.

As CA Streamer so nicely pointed out, this is a very controversial subject...most do not cover, others think it's just fine to do so...read through the discussions and make an informed decision. I do think most would agree that thebest thing to do is provide a shelter if possible...thought that's not always possible, I realize. I fyo ucan't do that and decide not to cover a good cleaning and waxing or walbernizing a couple times a year will surely help protect it form the elements and keep it looking spiffy...there are threads discussing that as well.

Good Luck!

Be careful of these types of covers as I know first hand of people who have used these and scratched things up. It is usually a better idea to look into a metal carport to protect your investment.

No! No! No!

Where was the intervention when it was needed. Look at the sides you can see.

Shelter

We exchange mowing their lawn and trimming their shrubs for allowing us to use the shelter.We also have access to use their large garden and take any fruit we want from blueberry bushes, fig trees, apples, grapes and peaches.I think we get the best of this barter and it is only down the street two houses.Click image for larger version

If you get tired of picking fruit, we would be glad to help, even without the nice covered spot.

Shelter Barter

We are very happy with our shelter arrangement. We already have a SOB in our driveway that I display awnings on. Our Avion couldn't make it up the steep driveway incline even though we tried everyone's suggestions.All of the fruits and vegetables we get out of the barter arrangement have been a blessing. We even got a juicer and are trying to eat healthier.
