Hail & Wind

We did anchor it...to make it secure. Winter we get strong winds.

We had black-top next to the house. We used wooden 4 x 4 pieces to rest the poles. I think you will notice in the photo.

Hope this gives you all the info you need. Ask if you want to know more. Aria
Here in NM the problem is wind. Lots of it. And occassional hail. Do you think I could stake down this cover to handle say a 50 mph+ wind without doing more damage to my AS. Do you think it would stop, or at least slow down large hail. As far as the hail is concerned I would look at this cover as expendable insurance.

To cover or not to cover...that... is the ?

New to AS...not new to winter weather and covering a trailer. 1st...I have to share how much fun {and confusion} I get from reading everyone's expertise and opinions via the Forum.
Re covering...after reading 50+ contributors I still am on the fence whether to cover our new 26FC. We have the latest 'soft and breathable', indestructible cover from our long gone Keystone. My wife is a seamstress and thinks she can refit that cover to custom fit our new AS. Before the thread starts flying... I'm going to keep reading ...'to cover or not to cover..it remains the question.

THANKS EVERYONE ...keep sharing.

We don’t recommend covering an AS with anything that comes into contact with the skin. Breezes will cause cover movement and leave marks on the aluminum and clear coat. And it is not pretty. Better to put it under a carport or structure. We store ours in a carport affair at the end of our house. Good luck finding your solution.

Thumbs up

Lets see those 'covers', I'll show you mine.


Custom cover designed & constructed by Mother Nature herself.
14yrs, no damage yet.
Plus she comes every Spring to remove it.
