Just purchased the ADCO Class A Designer Tyvek RV Cover

It's hard to believe that our "big" summer trips are done and that the season is winding down with possibly a few minor weekend trips in the coming months. With that in mind, I purchased the Adco Designer Tyvek cover. I read forum feedback and such however I didn't really see anyone covering their Georgetowns. Is it because most of you store them indoors? Camping World has a sale going on right now so I swooped in and picked one up for $364. I'd love to hear other's thoughts on buttoning down, winterizing, and tucking their babies in for the winter!

Do yourself a favor and get a real big garbage can to store the cover in next spring. I bought a 45 gallon plastic one and it was too small for The Beast. Someone in a thread suggested a 55 gallon can. That would have worked.

I have the same cover that I used last winter. Two tips:
1. don't have the clips on the straps rubbing against the paint. It took me several hours of polishing and rubbing compound to get the blemishes out. This year I'll wrap the clips with some cloth strips.
2. put padding on all edges. I have 6 tears on my cover from the slide awnings and power awning. The wind caused it to wear through the cover. This year I will wrap those corners with sponges or towels.

Last tip....make sure they sent the right cover. The first one I got said it was the correct one on the box, but when I opened it, it was for a class C MH. That's not what you want to see when it's nearly freezing outside and you have call the vendor back to get a new cover shipped out.
Hope that helps a little.......

We bought our Georgetown 4 years ago (next month is the 4th anniversary) and the Adco Designer Tyvek cover was on sale at the time. We decided to buy the cover then and we have always kept the RV covered between uses from day one. Makes a big difference - keeps the RV cleaner and the rig still looks new. We also wash and wax twice a year.
We live in Southern California and the sun can be brutal here so it helps a lot to keep it covered.
The first cover lasted me three years - bought a new one this time last year when they were on sale.

I keep mine covered too. I always put some old t-shirts over the corners of the slide toppers and awning before putting the cover on. I bought my last two covers on Craigslist. I just bought a 3 month old ADCO for $100. The first one I bought for $75 lasted 3 seasons.

We bought the Adco also for our 09 Georgetown. Put the cover on it in North Carolina while in storage in Feb. BRRR!! Then flew home to California AHHH. Then flew back in June to find the cover was in fine shape. It did have a couple "Rub Fuzzies" but no holes. I think the tighter you fit it, the better off you'll be. If the wind can't move it, then there's no rubbing going on. I think I will also use the t-shirt and towel idea. A 2 bit towel to keep the MH looking good and even saving the cover sounds good to me.
