Recommended RV Covers

Looking to purchase and RV cover for my Vegas 24.1. There are so many to choose from and prices range from approximately $150 to $400 for my camper size. The reviews are so wide range for a any particular cover. For example, I am looking at an Expedition cover that on one site has 4.7 stars and on another 3.5. Any suggestions?

I've been happy with a simple Adco cover for a 25ft class C on our 24.1. I just put it on for this winter which will be its 4th season. (Don't remember what I paid for it: Just grabbed it at Campingworld.)

Do you ever open slide while cover is on?

It would be nice if it was stored with cover on, but you could still access the door, go inside open slide and leave open to have plenty of room.

I have no need to put the slide out while the cover is on. The 24.1 slide is very small and only extends about 20" or so--not like we're partying in there during the winter LOL. Even at only 20" I don't think it could be extended as the cover is pretty tight along the sides.

I do go inside frequently in the winter. The cover has zippered panels on the door side to allow for access.

We like the Elements Premium RV cover...
It's waterproof, and weighs about half of what the others do.

Although I'm heading south for the winter and of the opinion fully covering the RV in not necessarily good a thing. Cover the A/C, wheels, windshield and door glass. Humidity is a HUGE concern. Not the mention the hassle, restriction of gaining access, etc. The disadvantage is the UV but keeping things clean, waxed, and protected will help with that aspect.

Thoughts?

No doubt: it has to be tied down securely... If it isn't: it'll beat your rig's finish up quickly!
But if it can save you from a leaky roof: that should make it worth the hassle.

Is there a way to put those on if you dont want to climb on the roof? Is it safe for a 230 poiund man to climb up there?

It works out better for the 230 pound man; if he's got some 165 pound Sons...

I'm 230lb (and change, ahem) and I walk around on our roof all the time without falling through, or slipping, or damaging things... well ok I may have tripped over a vent the last time I was up there but nothing broke. I even managed to put the cover on without tearing it..too much.

I'm "about 210 lbs", and I've never busted anything up top either...

Covers are a PITA..... And if you live in an area with high outside temps, it gets fairly hot inside the coach. However they will help keep int dirt off the roof if that concerns you. Mine didn't really help to keep plastic from getting brittle. I think because it got way hot under the cover. Like in the 130'sF with outside temps in the 100's. Not sure I will get another one after ripping ours on the slide out awning. Like someone mentioned, you need a couple of helpers to get them on without getting to pissed off.... LOL
