I have a 2011 Carriage Cameo 39 ft FW full body paint. I interested in a full body cover for when in storage. Do you use one and what kind? Thanks

I'm against full body covers if the trailer will be subject to wind. I've experienced cover rash from abrasion. They now have roof covers that have my interest.

My TT is covered whenever “resting.” Excursion covers are my current favorite.

I used an ADCO on my last TT for 13 years and it looked pretty much like new when I sold it.
The only thing better is a carport.

Ditto. Have had the Calmark one on my RV for about 6 years. Great cover. I store it over the summer in a large garbage pail with a lid and wheels.

Why cover if in storage (assuming it's inside storage)? The roof cover only has caught my attention as well as where we store it for the winter, lots of dust gets stirred up. But once I bring it home in spring, I wash the whole coach anyways, so the roof cover may be a moot point.

I want it for summer outside storage. I hate trying to keep it clean when we hardly use it doing summer. We are snowbirds and use FW in winter in the sw.

I had two 10 by 18 foot tarps sewed together to make a big "fly" to cover the top with enough extra to protect all awnings. We park it between two rows of trees and use the trees to tie the tarp too. Works great. When the wind blows it flies some what but not away[emoticon]
