Does anyone have any suggestions on where to buy a good cover for a fifth wheel. Thanks!

I would start at Camping World. That said, may people say that they will scuff up your paint. I am stored indoors so I am not the expert.

Spend the $$ on a good wax job annually & skip the cover. If you live in any wind they'll rub all four corners, tear up, blow off, not to mention being a royal PITA to install.

Iím with Danny....

I canít see covers doing any well on such a large item... Way too much chance for wind to move that cover and rub the corners...

My spring and fall rituals are almost the same..... get the scaffolding out and get a good coat of paste wax on everything twice a year.... then spray wax throughout the camping season...

I spent +/- $500 two years ago soon after I purchased my 38GK. Last 4 months, and ripped to shreds. Agree with most that even the good ones are not worth the money.

Here is CO, the UV is too strong and the wind raises heck with them. Some scuffed the roof enough it wore through the roof membrane and then you got problems! At the very least they scratch paint. The only real way to preserve it is get it in a garage.

They also do well outside, especially in use

Some folks in the south and east seem to do OK with them.
