Custom Cover to protect exterior or not?

I just purchased a 76 Airstream (my first). It has a great exterior and I would like to keep it that way. But no garage or carport. I am thinking of ordering a custom cover for when trailer is not in use, but dont know if this would be more harmful to the exterior, than being left uncovered. Any one tried the covers that are Tyvek on the inside with a poly coating on the outside? Any comments would be greatly appreciated.

Hi and welcome to the forums. If you use the search tool above you should be able to find several indepth discussions about this topic...

As I recall - the general consensus if that you should not use tarp-type covers that touch the outside of your trailer because they will abrade the finish or skin of you new find.

Let's have a polishing party: I'll supply the trailer and buffing supplies. BYOB (bring your own buffer)
