RVs in snow

3 Ways To Protect Your RV This Winter

RVing is a growing movement across the country. From long weekend getaways to week-long vacations, they are the perfect way to go on vacation while still having all of the necessities you need. It’s the perfect way to save money while travelling and connecting with nature. Unlike flying somewhere or camping out for weeks on end, hitting the road in an RV allows you the freedom to roam where you please without the expensive costs of flying and it provides you a more comfortable experience than if you were to camp in a tent for a long period of time. 

While RVing is a great way to get out in the warmer months, most people store their RVs during the winter months. An RV is a big investment, so it’s important to make sure it is cared for during the off-season to extend its life and ensure that it will start up again when the snow melts and it’s time to hit the open road. 

At Wholesale Direct Carports, we create custom metal RV covers to protect your RV, especially for people that live in colder regions of the country. Keeping your RV clear of snow, hail, and other elements that are thrown its way will keep it in tip-top shape and help you save money on repairs down the line. In this blog, we will provide you with a few different ways you can protect your RV this summer. 

To purchase an RV shelter, visit our website today! We offer a variety of sizes and styles that will allow you to create the perfect shelter for your RV! 

Rent An RV Storage Unit

If you live in an area where there isn’t a lot of room to store your RV, there are plenty of RV storage units that you can park your RV. Typically, these units are fully enclosed and are designed to fit larger vehicles. They will help protect your investment from cold temperatures, accumulating snow, and high winds that could potentially damage your RV if it isn’t protected. The only downfall to storing your RV in a storage unit is the fact that you don’t have immediate access to it and they are usually only built large enough to fit your RV, nothing else. If you are interested in a fully enclosed metal building to store your RV, reach out to us today! We can build you a custom metal RV carport and install it directly on your property for quick, easy access! 

Maintain Your RV By Hand

Yes, this option may not be as appealing as having your RV stored in a dry, warm unit, but it’s better than nothing! While this may be a bit old-fashioned, it will still help prevent weather-related damages to your RV. Sure, the sun and wind will still have access to the exterior of your RV, but you can at least keep the snow cleared off of your RV! It is a cheaper alternative seeing as you just need a good pair of winter gloves and a sturdy shovel to do the trick. If you’re looking to save money and are dedicated to manually protecting your RV, this is your best option! However, if you live in an area where it snows a decent amount during the winter months, you might want to look to save money elsewhere and invest in an RV shelter to provide adequate protection from the cold weather. 

Cover Your RV

Last, but certainly not least, is covering your RV for the winter months on your property. Most garages will not accommodate RVs due to their large size. That’s where metal RV covers come into play! You can customize your RV carport to a desired size that will not only store your RV, but it can also be designed to have extra space for any storage or other equipment you want to have protected during the winter months. We at Wholesale Direct Carports have a seamless process for customers to determine the size, roof style, color, and more! We are able to design it to perfectly match your existing buildings on your property to add to your curb appeal instead of having a snow-covered RV sitting in your street all summer. Contact us today to learn more about the process and begin designing your custom RV shelter.
