    The eternal argument do i dont i ?

    I know there designed to live outside but the water pipes are exposed (you can't totally drain it all out), waste traps have water in, milldue from the hedge, standing water etc

    As long as the camper is clean prior to storage, 240v is plugged in, i have access to the door, the thing is on a slope and the windows are protected from friction scratching then it has to be worth doing, surely ?

    I throw myself open to the forum to convince me otherwise..........:Rofl1:

    personally I would spend my money on something else, after all they are vehicles, as you have said you do everything else to get it ready for winter. Or you could carry on using it over the winter period :BigGrin:

    I tried a cover a very expensive one when we had a caravan, found it a right pain , had to wash & dry van before fitting cover hoping the wind wouldn't blow dust over the van as you fit the cover etc, then if you make a spur of the moment decision to have a weekend away you have to do it all again. Far better to give a good coating of Fenwicks overwintering fluid at end of season , and the van is still useable at any time without doing a thing
