Has anyone used one of the fabric enclosures to keep your RV out of the elements? The design I am talking about uses metal framework to create a long, sort of tubular, structure that you put a fabric cover over. They come in several sizes from something about the size of a small tool shed to huge ones that farmers use to store hundreds of the round hay bales in. One large enough to store most RV's should be under $1000.00. Since it is not considered to be a permanent structure you don't need a building permit. I can't imagine that you could put one of these up in an urban setting, but if you live in the country as I do (43 acres, mostly wooded) it seems like it might be a good option.

My FIL has one. Just be sure it is snow-load rated if you live in a area with snow. Also, be sure the brand you has uses UV inhibitor's in the material. My FIL lasted about 4 seasons then the canvas became very brittle from the UV wear & tear.

Good option if you have a nice shady spot with minimal snow load.

My new house came with one the previous owner used for his class A. It's great. I think it is made by a company called "Cover it" We also use a "COVER-ALL" building at our lumber yard for the main storage shed 62' x160'. It's 7 years old and no problems. As far as I'm concerned Coverall is the leader in this type of structure.
