RV covers

I know from many threads that you should not use covers on an AS. But, surely someone has found a cover that will be safe to use. Can anyone suggest a good cover or post experience with covering your rig? We own a 2015 FC 28, and cannot find covered storage anywhere near our home north of Atlanta (Cumming GA). Thanks

$260 a month for 10X30'. Forget that.

Looks like you have a good business opportunity. Buy some land, put a building, have a place to store yours for free while others pay for their storage. You already have one client.

There is one.
It's called "covered storage".

I cover my '72 with a tarp, it has a leak I haven't found yet! It's not polished so I'm not concerned too much. I found a place on line for odd sizes ..

Check out local small General Aviation airports with hangar storage.
I have stored my 2013 AS 25FB in hangars for last 2 years. Hangars belong to aviation snowbirds heading to AZ or FLA. for winter.

You could purchase one of those portable car ports/garages that consist of a metal "hoop structure" with a plastic cover. Not very elegant but it will protect the trailer from the elements and not scratch the surface. I think you can get these at Lowes and certainly online.

I tried to use one of those for several years. Got tired of replacing the cover every year. The plastic tarps no matter how thick or heavy duty just cannot handle the UVs of a southern summer. If I was to do it again I would use either fiberglass or metal to act as a roof. Better yet build a pole barn or something similar.

Just built this storage building, 44' x 40'. Worked great last week during our Hurricane Matthew rains.
