No cover. Your aluminum finish will scratch if you put any sort of cover / tarp or whatever over it. The only way to "cover" your Airstream is to park it under a roof.

Oh, and congratulations on your new Airstream!!

Not sure where you are located, but the Crossville, Tennessee Airstream only park is full of all manner of protective structures for Airstream trailers, from pre-fab aluminum garage-type enclosures to house-like extended covered patio types.

As mentioned, DO NOT cover it.....the material from wind sheer will scratch the surface and you will be very unhappy when you realize the damage it will do......find a structure or BUILD on that fits your trailer.......

We just bought ours and got it in April......we are in the same boat.....but we asked and everyone pretty much cover......get it some shelter!

If you think a structure is expensive.....cost out the replacement of outer skin panels to will return thanking everyone later.......

Joining the chorus for no cover.

One other point to raise may be whether this is a newer or older Airstream? If you asked about a cover because there are leaks, that opens up another can of worms.

For future discussions, you might want to add the specifics of your trailer into the information under your user name to the left.

Good luck,

My trailer was stored for years in Semi valley with a cover on it. The area was so dusty that the cover worked great. But now that it's up north I don't have a cover on it anymore. I think the snow and ice had been rough on it. I also haven't covered it since the place is so windy. Anyone want a 30' cover?
