Default RV covers

I am trying to find a rv cover that will fit the motorhome with zipper for rear side door on a 23 ft Trail-lite by R-Vision
B-plus
Floor plan 235S
2004
does anyone have suggestions on where to buy on cars they have covers for the exact model of cars so I am surprised that I am having trouble finding a cover to match.

I think the reason you are having so much trouble is because covers are not very popular. This is because (a) they are expensive and awkward; and (b) a strong case can be made that they do more harm than good, since they trap grit and grind it into the finish when it flaps into the wind. The sun will damage your interior without window protection, but modern exterior finishes are very robust.

Default rv cover

I live under fir trees that leaves sap on the rv that is why I thought it would be a good idea. I can understand the argument against them as far as not being able to let air in as good.

In that case, you are probably right. But, you may have trouble finding the right thing, for the reasons mentioned.

would one of the harbor fright carport kits work for you ?


20 x 10'- $120



the legs need to be extended for RV height


mine is supported by the house on one side, I used the extra legs on the other side to accomodate a 9'4" rv



it works ok, I got 3 years out of the cover in the AZ full sun, then replaced with a new cover


costco sometime has similar for about $200

here the desert grit would be sandpaper under any kind of vehicle cover

You can contact CalMark, they make a real quality coverůmade to fit. It has been years since I dealt with them, but they asked for certain measurements..to verify they had the pattern. It came in and was a first class piece of work.

I bought a cover made by ClassicAccessories for my 1997 PW. You are correct in that you have to go a "generic" mode. But I noticed that people had asked them on line about what to get for their particular RV. Mine has several zip openings and the material is similar to a tent type fabric. When on, it fits pretty well and good enough that the wind (in AZ?) doesn't catch it and move it around at all. There are numerous straps for underside and for cinching areas that don't quite fit. That said.......

It's not easy to get in on/off or to roll it up for storage. If you do it correctly you get the rolled cover on top of the van and roll it out - front to back - before you drop the sides down.

If my neighborhood HOA would allow it, I'd probably go Mike's route. It gets covered and it's an easy pull in/ pull out. And a lot less money. Mine was around $250 on sale.
