5 Reasons You Need a Metal RV Cover

A popular, more convenient form of travel today is an RV or camper. An RV is no small investment though, so it’s important to provide the best protection for your investment as possible. The reality for most RV owners is that life doesn’t allow you to get out on the road nearly as much as you’d like, and your RV probably sits parked most of the time. If you want your RV to be ready to go when you are, it’s best to keep it in a protected environment during the “offseason.” Metal Barn Central’s metal RV covers are the perfect shelter for your home-on-the-road when you’re not on the road!

What is a Metal RV Cover?

A metal RV cover is just that – it’s a secure way to store and protect your RV from the dangers of the elements. And at Metal Barn Central, our metal RV carports are durable, versatile, AND affordable! What more could you want? Not only are they great for protecting your home-on-the-road from possible damages, but with such flexibility of design they can also fulfill other multipurpose applications.

Advantages of RV Carports

There are many advantages to owning a metal RV cover, from their durability to their affordability. Listed below are just a few of the many benefits to owning one of these custom metal carports.

Provides Excellent Protection

RVs are significant investments, and they’re worth protecting with the best possible shelter. Vehicles that are left unsheltered for periods of time are prone to experience damage from sun, rain, hail, and more, reducing your vehicle’s lifespan. Though you may not notice right away, it can affect both the interior and exterior of your vehicle.

  • Constant exposure to the sun can cause paint to fade and any vinyl or rubber to crack and break. The roof is usually the first place to be affected by any damage, whether it be the sun, heavy snow, hail, or pollen. A new metal carport can shield your RV from any damages caused by these elements.
  • Shielding the exterior of your RV is important; however, protecting the interior is just as important. Damage from sustained sun exposure can occur faster than you may realize. From the dashboard to the seats to the living area, the sun can take its toll. Having a new steel carport installed can prevent these damages from ever happening.


Some RV owners just opt to use a fabric cover. And while a fabric cover is better than nothing, there are many liabilities that go along with it as well. They can be time-consuming and frustrating to put on and take off, and they can lead to damage as well. Even if you’re careful, covering and uncovering your RV with the cover will begin to dull the finish and scratch the paint off. A cover will also need to be replaced every year or two, thanks to tears, holes, or just everyday wear-and-tear. Having a new metal RV carport installed will save you the hassle of putting on and taking off fabric covers, and with minimum maintenance a metal RV carport can last you a lifetime.

Saves Money

Everyone loves saving money; the more money you save, the more you have to put toward an upgrade or new project. And renting a storage unit for your recreational vehicle can be very costly. By having a metal RV cover installed on your property, you’re avoiding those pesky storage units and their outrageously high prices. You’ll also be saving lifetime costs with low maintenance expenses for your secure steel structure.

Little Maintenance Required

Compared to other building materials, metal is much easier to clean and requires much less maintenance. With just a minimum of attention, a high-quality metal RV cover, garage, or other structure will stay in great shape for years to come. With the color being infused in the metal during manufacturing, you won’t have to worry with chipping or fading paint. And cleaning is a breeze, just a little soap and water can clean any dirt or gunk off your structure. It’s recommended to perform a couple of routine checks throughout the year for any possible damage caused by accidental vehicle bumps or occasional strong storms.


Our steel structures are assembled with precision-engineered components that can be assembled and installed much faster than other buildings, saving time, labor, and energy resources. Steel is also eco-friendly because it requires little maintenance and very few repairs. And to top it off… the steel components of our buildings are almost 100% recyclable!
