Classic Accessories PermaPro

We just covered our camper with a Classic Accessories PermaPro cover.
Very light weight, good fit and I liked the strap ties.

Will see how it last.

This is the third season with an Adco Tyvek Designer cover for The Beast. I wash the trailer roof and sides well a day before I cover it and other than a light coating of dusty stuff on the roof, when I uncover it the trailer is bright, shiny and ready to go. I tie it down nice and snug so paint chafing is not a problem.

Camco Cover

Installed camco cover on my 3010... They could do better with directions, but I figured it out. Took about 30 minutes.

Wow

Wow, 200 inches of snow??? Me thinks I'll stay in Kansas!!
Although the NOAA weather guy just gave us a red flag fire warning today and then snow towards the end of the week.
I had a cover on mine over last winter and we had a 80 mile per hour thunder storm come through and it turned my cover into a diaper
Fiver sits in a carport today.

I have covered all my trailers. If you in a high wind area no matter what you do you will get holes in your cover. But even a cover with holes protect your investment. The holes usually occur on corners. Covers are cheap compared to replacing decals and great for saving the finish. I have learned to go with cheaper covers, because as I mentioned no matter what you do your cover will get holes, and save the money to put to a new cover in the future. I actually had one cheaper cover last ten years. Yes it had some holes but did its job

Where do the holes occur on the cover ? Just a guess, the gutter spouts ?

If so. do you use tennis balls on the ends of the gutter spouts ?

Covers are okay but if you have the space, a pole building is much better and makes maintenance much easier. If you have a Sunseeker you are probably looking at about 10% of the cost of the RV, much better protection and you will likely recoup the building cost at resale because it will look like new.
