I have been enjoying visiting blogs and decided to start my own, even though I don't know what I am doing or if anyone will even be interested in reading what I have to say. I am a 50 year old management consultant who has been married to the the love of my life for 30 years and have two grown daughters and a son-in-law who we are very proud of. We are blessed to live in Scottsdale Arizona and are enjoying getting out and experiencing it in our RV! Thanks for stopping by our blog and please consider joining us, who knows where we will go...Kevin & Tracy.

All Covered Up!

I have a client who always says "I'm all covered up" every time I call him.  As a result, I couldn't miss the opportunity to use that phrase for the title of tonight's post.

I have been going back and forth as to whether I should use a cover on our rig this summer to protect it from further sun damage.  While much of the rest of the country is getting ready for their camping season, we are shutting down for the summer, at least for local outings.

Before the RV Cover!

I've looked at RV covers that ranged in price from $100 -$700 and although I would have liked a better quality cover, this one will work fine at $140 all in, including shipping from E-Bay.

$140 All-In...

Although the cover is not the thickest I have ever seen and it doesn't have the fancy zippered panels like the higher end covers, I will see how it holds up this summer.

All Covered Up Now!
On another note, we are suffering with six forest fires throughout Arizona and the sky is full of smoke and haze this evening.  We are also headed to 107 degrees tomorrow and I can't imagine how difficult the firefighter's jobs are right now.  Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers for safety and success in ending these fires quickly.

Tonight we welcome JudynEd Rice as our latest followers, they are new to the blogging world and will be retiring and starting their own adventure in September.  Welcome aboard and we hope that you enjoy the ride.

Thanks for stopping by, have a great week and be safe out there! 


  1. I would think the cover will help keep the destroying rv rays from damaging you coach and maybe keep it looking better longer. Good idea in that climate.

  2. In the summer heat of Arizona, that cover seems like a good idea.

    1. Rick - I have to be honest, it is a little bit of a pain to cover, but I am hoping it will keep the fiberglass looking better.

  3. Hopefully the cover does the job. I thought about getting one for ours during the winter but every RV in storage that is covered, the winter destroys it and exposes the rig anyway. So, I think we're stuck waxing a lot!

    Good luck!
