I have also had the same Elements cover for 3 years. I have had 2 small tears where I forgot to pad a sharp edge. I patched the tears with Gorilla duct tape on both sides of the tear. I will definitely buy another Elements cover when this one is done.

I bought the top of the line adco for my 30' class A. It worked well and held up for the year I had the rig and looked in good shape when it went to its new owner. I take all cover warranties with a grain of salt, be they rv or solar pool covers, they rarely last as long as they should, but factor that in when buying. You WANT the cover to take the abuse so your rig doesn't.

BTW the adco for the rv weighed 40+ lbs, not the easiest thing to manage. If I can find a lightweight 'parachute' type material I will buy one for the new Rockwood.

I have this cover for my 2018 Rockwood Roo 233S. Love it so far. Not to bad to put on, seems durable, etc. Still on it's first season so only time will tell but I have heard good things about it which is why I went with this one.

Thank you for your post! Our trailer is only 14 feet long. It appears the smallest one offered fits 15-18. We are still looking at our options. If only our trailer was a foot longer! Thanks again for your post!

covering an RV

for a small camper like yours, Harbor freight makes an 10' x 17' "shed" that would cover your trailer.

Keep in mind how you measure your TT for the cover. The one I bought said to count the rear bumper to the front of the "box". I also have a rear rack folded up with the spare tire mounted to it. Then, IMO, a little extra is good if you want to cover the front A frame, gas, battery, and hitch jack. All the decent covers have a couple gathering straps at both front and back, mine has them on the front and back bottom seam, as well.
I have a new basic ADCO model. Was under $200 via eBay. I only regret no zippers for access to the TT with the cover on. The material is all that spun fiber material that came out for car covers 25-30 years back, originally from Kimberly Clark as Evolution 3, IIRC. Very breathable. It does stretch over the years. Had one in the same material for a long time on my 1984 Mazda RX7.

They had the Elements covers on sale this year so I bought one to replace my ADCO which was 4 years old and had a few rips here and there mostly from rain spouts when removing. The Element cover fits well and I like the fit even tho I have a V-lite it works great. This cover seemed to be a little heavier made. They also include the socks to cover the rain spouts. Later RJD
