Is It Really Necessary To Cover Your RV?

If you're thinking about building an RV cover on your property, you may want to know if it's a great idea. Is it really worth building coverage for your RV? You may be surprised at the many benefits associated with covering your RV when you're not using it.

The Sun Can Damage Your RV's Exterior 

Your RV is likely one of your biggest investments, so you'll want to do everything you can to protect it. The sun can cause serious damage to your RV's exterior over time.

By covering your RV, you'll be able to keep the sun from beating down on it and causing fading or other damage. Of course, some of the damage is not just unsightly. It also impacts the function of your RV.

For instance, the sun can cause the seals around your doors and windows to deteriorate. This can lead to leaks when you're on the road and trying to enjoy a comfortable vacation.

Wind, Hail, and Other Weather Can Damage Your RV

In addition to the sun, wind, hail, and other weather can also cause damage to your RV. If you live in an area that experiences severe weather, it's even more important to have some sort of protection for your RV.

Hail can cause dents and other damage to the exterior of your RV. If the hail is large enough, it can even break windows.

Wind can also cause damage to your RV. For example, if a tree falls on your RV, the damage can be significant. Even high winds can cause problems, such as tearing off roofing material or other added components.

Birds & Bird Droppings Damage Your RV

Another reason to consider covering your RV is to protect it from birds and bird droppings. If you've ever had bird droppings on your car, you know how difficult they can be to remove.

The same is true for your RV. In addition to being difficult to clean, bird droppings can also damage the paint and other finishes on your RV.
