Clamark cover on as 22FB -winter storage

just shut down our as22fb.

water blown out ,
power disconnected
propane removed.
cover installed

we ordered a custom CALMARK cover
https://www.calmarkcovers.com/to fit the as22FB,

they take dozens of measurements to ensure it has space for solar, and any other accessory on the side or roof.

it even has a zipped door so that you can enter in the winter if needed
it is made of the same fabric as the zip-dee awnings. it is water proof but breathes

fits very well, they even include straps and draw string

once the conditions settle down we will pull it tight again

Be ready to see scratches and rub marks everywhere the cover touches the body. They are very hard to remove if you can do it at all. AS doesn't suggest covering your AS.You cannot get it tight enough to avoid friction between the cover and the skin. It will flap all around the zippered section around the door. But do let us know how it works out for you.

We covered our first AS...lesson learned. Never again.

Especially after it freezes to the panels and blows free again.

What exactly were you hoping to 'protect' it from?

Our Classic has survived 14 WNY Winters with no ill effects. 👍

My advise...remove the wheels, raise the stab's and put it on jack stands.
The tires WILL suffer damage during the Northern Winter especially with full weight on them and not being exercised. Regular use does help tire life.
At a minimum raise on stands, reduce pressure and cover.

the cover protects the roof from ice and leaves and sun . it makes it easier to keep the roof in good condition . it is the same materiel as he the zip-dee, the firm has 1000's of users. not one has reported the issue you are finding. it is NOT blue tarp material, it is soft to touch

the tie chords below keeps it tight and held under the As bottom edge. they are built in their own sleeve. they have dozens of grommets for addition hold down if needed. as well there are two straps that go from roof to belly holding it down.

i tried to move it around, it does not budge

will report in spring and let you know it works and if we see scratches or not

Well, good luck.

I've never had any damage from ice, leaves or sun.
Tires on the other hand have been damaged during Winter hibernation. 👎

AS trailer cover

I understand that AS doesn't recommend that you cover your trailer. However, I have a cover on my VW bug that is made from Technalon III material that was manufactured by Kimberly Clark. The VW sits outside and it's been covered continuously for 10 years when it's not being driven with no ill effects. Has anyone ever found a company that uses this material for trailer covers. This material is very soft and when dry is very light.

Covers for any outdoor use need to be softly padded, tight, and kept absolutely clean. Other wise, the loose dirty cover will act like sand paper in the wind. My experience with airplanes bears that out. On my Airstream I wax it with Walbernize twice a year and use no cover. It still looks new.

I have also used a cover for protection...but auto paint and/or clearcoat...even 65yr old paint, is not the Alcoa treated panel that AS uses, it's the brushed grain surface that gets damaged.

We have had our Calmark cover since May with no issues to date. Just applied 2nd Wallbernize treatment since buying AS in March. Granted, I don't have snow and ice to deal with, but happy with the product.
