Sidecar, not all of us have access to inside storage but I have found with proper maintenance your camper won't suffer being outside. My 5th wheel is a 2006 with a rubber (not TPO) roof, never been covered, and is still holding up fine. But I am on the roof every spring and every fall looking for any areas or seams that need attention. Sure it would be nice to park inside out of the snow, rain and ice but it isn't in the cards. So I'll plan to make the trip up on the roof every year until we decide to sell. So far that had worked for me.

Sorry for your mishap also, but shouldn't your auto insurance cover it ? Same as hitting something anywhere while driving ? I would have fought them on that one.

Insurance won't penalize you for that... they only care about only the accelerator "button"...LOL

(rv.net has been a little wonky lately... no harm, thanks for the input)
