Trailer covers

Purchased our first Airstream last September. Since covered storage is not an option where I live I've started looking at covers. After searching for one I'm more confused than when I started. We live in Georgia where sun is more of a factor than other weather. Would like to hear some opinions.

Welcome to the Forums, Perryd!

Generally speaking most Airstream owners prefer not to use overs on their Airstreams because they have a tendency to leave marks on the aluminum skill... You might look at the winterizing and storage sub-forum and explore there... Here is one thread to start you on...

Thanks for link. Some good info there.I think I think I'll forget about the cover. Never thought about damaging the clear coat.

Have never seen a single comment on the Forum that has a positive thing to say about a covered Airstream. The aluminum is just too soft to cope with anything that causes even mild friction.
