How to Extend the Life of Your Recreational Vehicle
Preventative maintenance is just one of the ways to keep your RV in top shape for the long haul. The other way is equally effective, but often neglected — RV Covers. Here’s how to make the right choice…
There’s a proper RV cover to fit just about every kind of RV, from Class A, B, and C to 5th wheel RVs, travel trailers, truck campers, and folding campers. Be sure to select the appropriate cover for your particular RV to ensure the best fit. RV covers can be custom made, too, for those who want an even better fit or special features.
Just any kind of RV covers won’t do, though. RV covers should be constructed of a rugged, but breathable material. You’ll want a material that can endure harsh weather conditions, but at the same time, prevent moisture from becoming trapped and turning into mold and mildew. Some RV covers come equipped with access panels, making it easier to reach different parts of your RV without having to remove the entire cover to do so.
Covering other important parts of your RV with Accessory Covers is vital too, especially when storing the vehicle for an extended period of time. RV wheel covers are an easy way to protect your tires from weather damage, and from damage that the sun’s ultraviolet rays can cause. Additionally, there are RV covers which protect your propane and LP gas tanks from sun and weather exposure, and RV covers for air conditioners which protect the units not only from sun and weather, but from insects, who find the air conditioner an attractive place for nesting.
When you’re ready to hit the road on your next RV vacation, you can easily remove and store your RV covers until they are needed again. If you leave your vehicle in good condition before covering it, you’ll find it in the same good shape when the covers are off. This means that you can spend less time preparing your RV for departure and more time enjoying the scenery.
