Has anyone ever used a fabric type cover for your Newell. Many companies now make sizes up to 48'. However most are for front entry ...Just wondering how this would work for heat and rain protection? $500-700. not so bad if they protect.

I've used one of these on and off for several years. It does seem to keep the coach cleaner and it provides protection against the sun on the paint. There are a couple things to consider. First, any sharps on the top of the coach can rip through the cover unless you put padding over them. Second, if used in the winter and snow collects, if the snow is there when you decide to move the coach you have to remove the snow first which isn't easy. Finally, if parked on a non-paved surface moisture will rise from the ground and can become trapped temporarily unless the sides are kept above ground level, even then I worried (yup I can and do worry) that the moisture would get trapped under the cover due to minimal air circulation.

Thanks Jon for the great tips to consider when looking into a fabric cover.

Sean this breathable Tyvek material sounds like it might prevent moisture build up?

Hey Mike: the I used is the Adco that Sean mentioned. While it didn't seem to trap moisture that I could see on the outside I suspect that the lowered air circulation in the coach left what felt like higher humidity inside when parked on gravel. I don't recall this being the case when I had it parked on concrete. Please take this as anecdotal as there are probably a lot of things that could change from one location to another, but still this is what I noticed.
