RV Cover Guide

Measuring

To ensure the best fit possible, it is necessary to measure your RV. Please see below for manufacturer-specific instructions for measuring.  

Measuring for a Carver Cover

Carver Industries

When choosing a Carver cover, measure from bumper to bumper. There is no need to include ladders, spare tires or air conditioner units. These items will be taken into account and accommodated in the cover pattern. Hitches and propane tanks are items that are not typically covered.  Propane tank covers are available separately. We recommend completing your own measurements rather than relying on the specifications given by the RV manufacturer. Carver covers are made to fit the size listed. If your unit is any longer than what is listed, even by an inch, you should order the next larger size.

  2. Roll the cover to the back end of the roof.
  3. Working from front to back, spread the cover to the side edges of the roof.
  4. From the ground, use a stepladder and work from front to back to pull the cover down over the sides of the RV.  Adjust the fit as necessary.
  5. Before securing the elasticized hems, you may wish to use the included reinforcement/repair kit to add protection to stress areas.
  6. Secure the elasticized hems under the front and rear end of the RV.
  7. Using the 40-foot tie down straps (if provided), secure the cover and adjust to create a snug fit. Most covers also have an adjustable strap system attached to the front of the unit to provide a more secure fit.

Care

How to Prolong the Life of Your Cover

  • Avoid letting water or snow stand on the cover.
  • Always tie cover down securely.
  • Before installing the cover, take the precaution of padding areas that could snag or tear; such as mirrors and awning mounts.
  • Allow the cover to dry thoroughly before folding or storage.

Cleaning Your RV Cover

RV covers may be cleaned by spraying with a hose and/or using a solution of mild soap and water, and a soft brush.  Rinse with hose and allow to dry completely.
