Title: Thoughts on Winter Covers
Post by: Urban Hillbilly on October 04, 2017, 10:47:27 AM
Going into our first winter with the TT. Just winterized the plumbing yesterday.

Wanted to get thoughts/opinions on full trailer covers and/or AC covers. Worth the investment? We don't have constant snow where we live in Colorado, but we can easily get a foot at a time. Thankfully it melts pretty quick here.

How about just a large tarp over the roof?

Really appreciate the experience some of you have out there.

I have one but never used it. I would think condensation might be an issue if it can't breathe.

This is debated every year, with opinions pretty evenly split for and against.

If you do decide to cover, don't use a tarp. The cover needs to breathe to prevent moisture problems. Also, make sure the cover is tight. If wind gets under it and moves it around, you'll end up with paint damage.
