I live in Halifax Nova Scotia. Our winters are a mixture of many freeze thaw cycles, with, at times lots of snow of the wet and heavy type to light and fluffy, which periodically switches to rain. All this to say - yes we have a crappy winter. I have been unable to find inside storage, so we will store outside in our driveway. I was looking at the Adco Tyvec 5th Wheel cover on Camping World.
Question: Are they worth the investment - I would really like to keep the "winter" off the camper - but do not want to introduce additional interior problems.

Most manufactures do not recommend using RV covers. Most of the reports I have read on them they do more damage than good.

My neighbor went thru 2 covers in the past 4 years. He got the good ones. We live on top of a windy mountain and the wind shredded both covers. Agree with Hunter11 that they also do a rubbing type of damage on the exterior on the rv.

Hi Darrell, I live in Halifax too. I've also heard from many that covers do more damage, so I've opted against it. Tough to do as I'm driving a 2014 Sunset Trail and don't want anything to happen to it. If you'd consider spa e outside the HRM there are indoor spots still available.

talk to a a few - but all are full.

Glenn, thanks for the reply. My 5th is 13 feet high, so that excludes me from most indoor options. I was able to track down a few places, but they were full. I have looked down in the Valley and out past Truro - no luck due to the height. I have a a parking/storage spot next to my driveway that I had installed a few years ago, but was hoping for the inside option.....

Yeah I can see height would be a challenge. We're going into the Valley Exhibition storage barn. Brand new building, not sure of the height, but you may want to check it out. It's in Lawrencetown in the valley, just past Middleton.

Thanks for the info. I sent them an email tonight - hope to hear something tomorrow. Looks like this weekend coming up might be the last trip out. Going to Wide Open Wilderness in Truro...
