    5th wheel RV cover - which is best

    Already did a search ........

    I'd like to buy one cover and spend the money once for a good cover.

    Living in the Northeast, so something that will stand up to harsh winter.

    Ideally I am looking for ht best one made - brand etc.

    This will be for our Cyclone, which is 36' long, excluding the pin box.

    A toy hauler cover is not necessary, as we do not need access to the garage lift gate. It's up against a fence anyway.

    Experience?
    Best brand?
    Best model?
    Best place to buy/price?

    The best product is a steel building or carport. It will last many years longer than any cover and not mare the finish on the RV.

    I don't use a cover for the RV but have for boats. I have never had a cover (cheap or expensive) that would hold up for more than two seasons. The humidity, heat, cold and rain would deteriorate them.

    Guess I need to clarify exactly what kind of cover I am looking for

    I live on 1/2 acre, our house is a ranch style with a relatively large footprint for the square footage. I am at maximum allowed ground coverage (24%) thanks to the size of the house, shed and the driveway.
    I am near maximum structure coverage (only 130 square feet to go to reach 14%).

    And we are only allowed one additional structure (max of 180 square feet), e.g. shed.

    So the car port - RV shed is out of the question.

    My previous trailer came with a cover that was already 3 years old when we got it. I used the cover for another 2 seasons before I gave it the buyer of our TT.

    It had a tear or two but for the most part it did a good job of keeping the trailer relatively clean, especially since I am surrounded with trees - the messy types - oaks and maples.

    Just looking for the best quality fabric cover. Tried searching the net but could find and comparison or testing.
