I am having a difficult time finding Travel Trailer covers to protect my new rig from TX sun when not in use. Mainly because my Laredo 311BH is 38 feet long.

Any ideas or recommendations for covers under $500 for a very long travel trailer? Thanks!

Save your money and invest in some quality wax.

Yep!
What Chuck said!
Down that far south/east in Texas wind wouldn't be as big an issue as the humidity.
If you find a good bargain on one, buy 2, they'll only last a couple years.

Thanks....will go the wax route. Yes will be in Houston or Llano 80% of the time.

I agree with the wax. Had a cover and the wind tore it up over the last two seasons of covering it.

Waxing and taking care of the exterior of the trailer is much better than a cover IMO. A cover not only introduces moisture between it and the trailer causing problems by retention but it is just impossible to keep it tight and nice; especially on a 38' trailer. If it was extremely short it might be doable but at 38' the wind and elements will disintegrate it and it will unfortunately chafe the finish of the trailer in the TX winds.

As an FYI, Keystone does not recommend covering their RVís. No this is not in print anywhere I can find but was told to me, and others, on the phone.
