We also went with a carport (years ago) and ordered it wide enough that we could fit 2 Airstreams in it side by side (just in case). Our second AS is 5' longer than the first, so I wish I would have added a couple of extra feet to the length. We opted for the heavy duty frame and 9' side height. Plenty of height even with a full profile Air Conditioner.

Good hunting,

Roy and Marie

Used a cover now for two years. Despite the pundits, no damage, scratches, or the antichrist arriving ahead of schedule. No yellowed clearcoat, no abrasions, nothing except a preserved coach from the elements.

The key is a fitted cover (mine is an ADCO) a thoroughly clean and polished coach, and routine checks on the cover tension and fit. I Liquid Glass the entire coach twice a year, including the roof. The wash is Liquid Glass car wash.

It works.

Glad to know that you're up to three years with no problems from your cover. But covers don't necessarily work for everybody. I would still put it in the "try at your own risk" category.

But for those who do want to try it and hope to get the same good results you did, could you possibly identify the make and model of your cover? With the understanding that no liability falls on you if they try the same thing and it doesn't work as well for them? After all, you don't want to be held responsible for the early arrival of the antichrist, right?
