Why You Need to Buy a RV Cover
While we here at CarCover.com recognize the importance of covering for every vehicle, there is a definite sense in which RVs are the most obvious and immediate example of the need for automotive coverings. These are machines (whether powered or towed) which, under the car port or out on the lot, have no choice but to face a degree of exposure to the elements. They are, moreover, no less precious an investment than a regular sedan or any other oft-covered vehicle, and often just a susceptible to environmentally caused damage.
This combination of factors – exposure, vulnerability, and value, speak to the real need to cover a RV. More than a regular car, whatever the make, model or size, RVs serve as real homes – whether all the time or just some of the time – for many people. Certainly, people don't stand by as their homes suffer undue damage!
Having a cover for your RV means that corrosion, mold, mildew, fading, and cracking are all less likely to afflict your RV, and that when some of this wear inevitably comes about, it will happen later in your RVs life, and more slowly. Having a cover for your RV also opens new possibilities of comfort and extended ranges of occupancy. While covers won't always fit such that occupancy is still possible while covered (this is mainly a problem for pop-ups, or some models of RV with pop-out features), those models where this is an option benefit from an extra buffer between the cabin and the outside, providing privacy and additional insulation against the heat or cold.

Different Types of RV Covers
Covers for conventional vehicles – trucks, sedans, SUVS, etc. – usually come in several varieties. Car covers can be waterproof, water resistant, lined or unlined, of various materials, and for indoor or outdoor use. Due to the smaller range of circumstances an RV will be found it, we feel it is unnecessary to provide every kind of cover and so choose to keep things simple. The fact of the matter is RVs just don't usually fit inside, and their range of uses means they will spend the majority of their lives outdoors. Moreover, indoor covers are usually thin and meant for protecting, mostly, against micro-scratches and clouding finishes that come from exposure to dust. RVs are almost never made with exteriors of high-gloss, metallic finish that makes this kind of protection necessary for conventional vehicles.
Thus, the cover models we offer for all RVs are the following: our Gold Shield five-layer cover, and our Silver Shield three-layer cover. The Gold Shield is best for extended stints outdoors, in extremes of weather, while our Silver Shield will be sufficient for modest climates and RVs stored under carports.
Outdoor RV Covers
Our outdoor RV covers – the two models we offer, Gold Shield and Silver Shield – cater to the full range of situations you will encounter as an RV owner. Both covers come with the same guarantees, accessories, and feature set, and are differentiated only by the number of layers that constitute them. The Gold Shield cover has a five-layer top which partially overlaps its three-layer sides, while the Silver Shield cover has a three-layer top which also partially overlaps its two-layer sides. This thickness differential serves to keep costs down on such large covers while ensuring comparable protection: most water will pool or be in contact longest with top of your RV and have much less time in contact with its sides, being vertical surfaces.
The innermost layer of both our RV covers is made of a porous microfilm, which serves to wick away the odd bit of moisture which might find its way underneath the cover and provide additional protection against mildew or rust. All outer layers for these covers are made up of Polypropylene PLUS, a plastic which is widely used in the automotive industry and is a time-tested favourite for its bacterial resistance, impermeability, and toughness – the perfect material for an RV cover! The only relevant weakness of polypropylene is its UV sensitivity – which we promptly negate with our UV Sun Inhibitor treatment.
The full feature set, common to both these cover types, can be found on the product page of each. But the essential features are as follows. CarCover.com RV covers come with elasticized corners for a snug, near-custom fit, heavy- duty weighted buckles for durability and ease of use, modular zippered side panels, air vents, a ladder cap, and rain gutter cover.
Before you buy your RV cover, you only need to ask yourself what conditions your RV will face. Is it an all-year home? Do you live in a climate with extremes of weather, be it heat, rain, dust or snow? Or do you just want absolute peace of mind? Then you need our Gold Shield cover. If you have access to a covered carport, don't experience any more than light snow and rain, then the Silver Shield cover is right for you.
How to Measure your RV
As an RV owner, you want to get the most out of your investment. To this end, it is important to take steps to protect it from the natural elements when you know it will be sitting for an extended period of time. RV covers provide damage protection from things such as UV rays, wind, rain and snow. They also prevent bird droppings, dirt, dust, and sap from building up and damaging your recreational vehicle's finish. Covers are designed to be water resistant for rain and snow, yet breathable to reduce the amount of moisture and condensation that accumulates beneath the cover, keeping mold and other moisture-loving threats at bay. In order for a cover to properly do its job though, it is crucial to have the right size for the type of RV that you own.

RV Cover Fitting Options
The industry standard cover fitting classifications are custom, semi-custom, and universal. These different fits refer to the specificity of a given cover to the vehicle it is meant to cover. In other words, it refers to how snug and how tailored the form of a given cover is. Here at CarCover.com, we focus on semi-custom covers for RVs. Choosing to produce semi-custom covers has various consequences, though they are almost entirely positive from the point of view of the consumer.
Semi-custom covers are covers that try to narrow in on certain key elements of a kind of vehicle or trailer in order to provide the best possible fit while remaining more broadly compatible. A truly custom cover that caters to every aspect of a vehicle or trailer drives production costs up for the producer, and therefore the price that is offered to the consumer. In distinguishing between different styles of RV – motorhomes, trailers, vans, etc. – and having narrow size windows for each cover (of only a few feet), we at CarCover.com have managed to provide a semi-custom cover that errs closer to fully custom than to a universal approach which would, for instance, offer the same block of material for all RVs of approximate lengths and dimension.
With the addition of smart tapering, elasticized edges and front and rear straps, we have found a way to get the tightest possible fit out of a semi-custom cover. With price and value under consideration, we believe customers will find us to strike the perfect balance. Our money-back fit guarantee is a testament to our confidence in this matter. Please use our cover search engine on the RV homepage, sort by RV type and size, and find yourself the best semi-custom RV cover on the market today!
