Tourists are returning north, kids are back in school, and stores have resumed selling Halloween and Christmas decorations. It’s official: summer is coming to a close, and with it, vacation season. For the next several months, your favorite recreational vehicle will be sitting in your yard, exposed to the elements: the Florida heat, sporadic thunderstorms, and hurricane debris.
They call Florida “The Sunshine State” for a reason. But with that sunshine comes heat, and that heat and direct sunlight can have adverse effects on your vehicle. The paint may fade, or worse, parts may crack or even melt. An RV or boat cover can conceal your vehicle from that harmful heat, providing a cool shade that will ensure that your RV or boat will look as good next summer as it does now.
Almost as famous as the Florida summer is the Florida thunderstorm. Like the Florida heat, the Florida rain can wear on your RV or boat, shortening its lifespan and reducing its resale value. The rain can cause the metal components to rust, and any collected pools of water can lead to stains, mildew, and pests. An RV or boat cover will act as a canopy, preventing the intense rainfall and subsequent aftermath from weathering your vehicle.
We’re halfway through hurricane season now, with the strongest storms yet to come. We’re lucky if we get a few days of prior notice before the next storm strikes. These storms are powerful, and can send debris of all kinds scattered throughout your yard. With a metal RV or boat cover, you can shield your vehicle from storm debris, such as falling branches. An RV or boat cover can also protect your vehicle from hail damage.
