Winters are the dryest. If you have wood floors and furniture you need to use a humidifier.

Being so used to it, I find it quite uncomfortable in humid places.

Maybe that's why they call it a desert area??

Want moisture, come to the Pacific North West Coast!!

The natural coastal beauty of Oregon, Washington and southern BC really becomes evident when you get those nice warm sunny days in the summer. You just never know exactly when that will occur though!

And in the winter - well you go skiing in the mountains

Not happening. The rain here doesn't bother me one bit. That's what boots, hats and umbrellas are for! Oh yeah, and a raincoat that covers me from nose to fingertips to ankles.

Kananaskis Country in Alberta is getting to the dry side. Looks like an AZ sky without the dust/polution?
Then you go to The Badlands at Drumheller Alberta, now we are talking dry.
Just don't upset the free ranging native wildlife!

A little distraction while waiting for April 1. Isn't this what it's all about?

Mattress covers was the original thread here.

I ordered a Sunbrella cover for my 17A and I would not order another .... I'm sorry that I did.

I need to make a further explanation about my problems but its 11:30 PM and tomorrow is a work day. There are pro's and con's here. From my years of living aboard my boat in NW waters, I have something to say here .... however, I am a RV newbie. Are they different?

I'll try to add more tomorrow.

I considered Alberta part of the PWN, learned something this morning. Now I know it's dry I should be able to Deb into a trip out. Anywhere in AB have 21C temps year round?

As far as mattress pads, we have the breathable style for dust mite prevention due to Asthma, It's not waterproof and we've have had no issues with such, don't recall reading about anyone having such either. But hen I don't live in monsoon country.
