When you go by Rv Sales they don,t cover all those rv,s in their yards. But I guess if I can keep the rain off of my trailer it is not a bad thing. And after all the labour that I have done on my unit , why not just keep it looking beautiful..
Couple things your rv dealer didn't mention;
Are you physically able to haul that heavy bundle up a ladder?
Are you afraid of heights, you'll be 13'+ high on the roof.
Are you agile enough to hopscotch all the protrusions on the roof while installing the cover?
Is there lots of wind in your area? If so the cover flapping can possibly do as much damage as the weather.
If the cover doesn't breathe well you'll have a mold/mildew problem as a result of all the rain.
Just to name a few.
A good cleaning & wax job before storage would be my choice.
Just my .02 cents!
