Motorhome Roof Cover

Are they any covers you can get that will just cover the roof on a coach built?

I am on cleaning ours at the moment (See other thread) and its a nightmare. Must be where its parked on the drive close to our house and our neighbours garage (about 6 inches either side). Just gets totally green.

So when i finish the mammoth task one day which I think could be akin to painting the Forth Bridge i was wondering for when its parked on the drive if there was like a semi cover just for the roof. I dont want to cover the whole van. I was thinking I could drag something over when its on the road over the top of the luton which will hold that end on and then just tie it round the back rails. I can then still drive it on and off the drive.

Does such a product exist?

Yes it does B, nearly bought one myself, in the end I bought an industrial stepladder that reaches the same height as the roof

Academia and government artificially select for particular traits, among which is a lack of life experience. This is why it's possible for a person to be exceptionally bright while failing to grasp something as rudimentary as supply and demand.

Thanks, yes I found that one and another that offers postage. Might have a bid.

No worries about setting the alarm off Cabby. We dont have one.

Nobody is nicking this anytime soon anyway.

Barry did you take the wing mirrors off to get in there. Fair play to you.

Nah, just fold them back. I have it off to a tee now, straight in no bother. Reversing out requires some help as it goes out onto the road and you cannot see anything until your blocking the entire road which frequently has 20 ton tractors bombing down it.
