    Winter is coming and wanted to know what would be the best cover for my 28' tt? Thank you

    A fully inclosed garage concrete floor is best. Metal carport style with concrete slab, gravel, dirt. Adco covers for the area you live. JMO

    If you are looking for a cover spend the extra money and get a Tyvek cover. Generally around the $350-$425 range. Keeping your RV under cover in the winter months will be the best thing you do for your camper. Exposure to the elements will take years off of your camper's life!

    'A fully inclosed garage'

    Would that make it full cover age?

    RE: rv cover

    Thanks for the help. I do not have a garage but I am going to buy a cover. Do you think I have to park it on gravel or is level dirt good enough if I rubberrize bottom of camper frame?

    Guess I'm on a different page. If I cannot get a solid cover of some type(building) mine set in the weather. The cover holds in moisture and causes rot. Mine is parked in the open over the winter with no heat and dry-ez or some drying agent with a window cracked and also a roof vent. If I could get power to it there would be a small heater on.

    Re: rv cover

    I have never covered mine and like Len I would not use anything other than a building of some sort. When you park put boards under the tires to keep them off the ground and if on dirt try to try to mound the area underneath to advoid water standing underneath. Course this would be true even if on concrete. A moisture barrier such as plastic on the ground helps also. AJMO

    It should be fine, but I would not go walking up there in real cold weather. If I needed to lessen snow load I would do it from a ladder and a softer broom. I never have taken the snow off and have had 24" several times.

    Re: rv cover

    Well I cover mine with a Tyvek cover beginning late Oct, thru March and it is kept on concrete with some 2x12 boards under all of the tires. And after I remove the cover I wash it with a solution of water and Clorox. Then the hard job of waxing and buffering it. This removes any mold that may occur during the winter. Now what Nash has written is true, if I could build a garage in my back yard for my MH I would. And I would have it heated and cooled, however, the HOA will not allow it. :( :( :(
