Overhead Shot

Originally Published in MotorHome Magazine


Over the years I have used various storage covers for my Class A motorhome and consistently had a problem with the sharp points protruding in the upper areas making holes in the cover. These holes significantly reduce the life expectancy of the cover. I tried many things during the past 12 years and I finally found the solution: tennis balls.  
Make a slit in the ball a little less than the size of the point causing the problem and slip the tennis ball over it. The ball, being of a soft fabric and rounded, prevents holes and is made of a thick rubber that will keep the ball snug around the point, preventing damage. No more holes and a long-lasting cover!
