    Hi all you MoHo experts, I need some advice!

    I think I need a cover for my Motorhome. Even though it is stored inside a purpose made barn with 100 other vehicles it still gets pretty grubby on the roof.

    Also for a couple of months this year I will be leaving it at a friends house, out in the open, would you suggest a Motorhome Roof cover or a complete cover.

    I'm afraid it might chafe the paintwork in high winds, your thoughts please and any recommendations.

    I wouldn't hesitate under cover, but you hit the nail on the head with chaffing in the open. let the rain clean it regularly for you, hee hee.:thumb: and of course solar will not keep your batteries alive under a cover.

    Apparently the one to buy is Pro-Tec, invested in by Dragon Hilary Devey. A friend of mine has always used them for his caravans, and also bought one for the old Symphony which I sold him last year. He is VERY fussy and does classic car stuff so I trust his judgement...

    We have a full ProTec cover for our Autotrail. Quality kit. Bespoke manufacture, accommodating all your sticky out bits. Only down side I have found with ours, which shouldn't be a problem with your muscles, is it's damned heavy.

    Don't bother, just give the van a good coating of Fenwicks over wintering fluid, just clean the van and spray on with a garden sprayer , you won't even know it has a coating to look at it and the van will still be ready for the off if you decide to nip out for a weekend or something, when you feel you need to wash the van again just use a slightly stronger solution of Fenwicks Motorhome cleaner, ideally followed by a rinse with a bit of bobby dazzler in the water job done, easy cleaning and a nice shiny van.
    By the way I have no connection with the company just been using their products for many years.

    Well short term I think I'll go with Full Timers suggestion for Wildmans reasons as much as anything and also (edExel) because my muscles aren't as they were a couple of years ago.

    However if I do look at covers it will definitely be ProTec....... thank you all...Griff

    ps where do I look for Fenwicks cleaning products?
