The choice of a good motorhome cover is decisive for obtaining effective and appropriate protection. To be sure of making the right choice, pay particular attention to 10 important criteria:
This is the first criterion, the most obvious, but we could not ignore it.
Covering your vehicle with a cover will protect it from external aggressions and this is its main function. However, moisture rising from the ground is mechanically trapped under the cover. It is therefore essential to provide a ventilation system to prevent the accumulation of humidity. By choosing a breathable, microporous cover model, you will allow air to circulate and moisture to escape. Using a non-breathable RV tarp will risk lead to moisture buildup and mold growth.
The sun's rays are very aggressive and it is better to provide a protective cover with a suitable coating.
The quality of the fabric is not necessarily judged by the weight. Just keep in mind that if your motorhome cover is too light, it may lack strength and strength. On the other hand, if it is too heavy, it will be difficult to install and then to fold.
5. Value for money / brand
As with any other purchase, find out, compare. Read the product descriptions carefully with the help of our advice. For more guarantee, trust a great brand that has proven itself.
6. Access to doors
During the winter, it is advisable to regularly inspect your vehicle. You can open and ventilate. Many people take the opportunity to clean the interior and do small maintenance jobs. When the good weather arrives, it is pleasant to come and prepare the vehicle before the next escapades. Access to the vehicle is a very important criterion in choosing your cover. Check that the latter is equipped with an opening system allowing access to the doors whatever their location without having to remove the cover at each visit. You will save valuable time.
7. Soft interior
Remember to check the inside of the cover. It should be soft to avoid scratches.
8. Adapted to the shape of your vehicle
It is preferable to opt for a cover that is well suited to the range of your vehicle: profiled, integral, alcove… Universal covers do not follow the shape of the bodywork well and offer strong wind resistance.
9. Fixing system
Your cover must incorporate a vehicle attachment system to prevent movement in windy weather. In the absence of it, it will be necessary to plan to buy straps in a specialized store.
