Can I cover this trailer???

BIG QUESTION??? Can I cover this trailer with a RV Cover from camping world?
Read on a post that this is not good. But I live in Arizona and the area where I live does not let you keep RV's on property. It is in uncovered storage about 5 miles away. If the cover is secure and is not flapping around I don't see any problem. (But I'm new at this). I have no peeling on this trailer and want to keep it that way. There is one place in town that has covered storage, but it is 65.00 a month to store and I think that is high! Any input will help.....2000 Safari 25ft.

In a word, NO!

No matter how well you secure it the tarp will rub, and grind right through the clear coat. You will be VERY sad when you pull the tarp off to use the trailer and see what it has done to the finish.

Cool Price is not that bad...

Hobby, If I could find covered RV parking in Phoenix for $65.00 a month I'd jump on it. From my experience here in AZ covered parking is a premium. It's much more in our storage yard and there's a waiting list.

I would jump at covered parking for 65. in Southern Ca covered parking is now going for $6.00 per foot. Currently pay $80 to park outside. IN Orange County there is a waiting list for covered parking. I am now thinking about moving to Arizona.

we too are paying over $100.00 per month in the Phoenix area for covered storage. $65.00 sounds like a bargin to us.....

Ditto what Brett said. I just keep it washed and Walburnized regularly.
