Are ADCO covers worth the price?

I had heard at one time that ADCO covers were the best. We found one on Craigslist for $75 and purchased it yesterday. I found new ones on Amazon and they are $195. We aren't sure how old it is but we noticed there are a few holes in it. Now after reading reviews on Amazon, I'm not so sure we got such a good deal. It seems that most people say they are made almost like paper and just fall apart, sometimes after less than a year. Are they really that bad and if so, what other brands are best?

Well well worth it. Cannot understand paying $20,000 for my new TT and not spending $300 to protect it in winter. No brainer to me. Bought the Designer Series for my Mini-Lite 2503s, the model 32841, size 20'1" to 22' and it fits this model like a glove.

They do fall apart easily. Mine is a year old and has several torn holes in it. I needs to be covered in this florida heat, so I assume I'll be purchasing a new one every 2 years

Wind will tear them pretty quick.
Padding EVERY corner,sharp edge, etc will help.
After you put it on check it while it's windy, then adjust, tighten and add padding where needed... around the steps, mirrors if it's on a MH.

We had one on the Roo for 4 winters and still in great shape. We did not hesitate to buy one for our Rockwood 8265ws when we got it. We don't have very high winds in NH and the snow keeps it in place. But I wouldn't leave my RV exposed to the winter elements. We had an Alumascape fifth wheel we never covered and the winters weren't very nice to it. The freezing and thawing was tough on it.

We have the designer series on our Roo and it has survived 3 winters in Indiana quite well. We put tennis balls on our downspouts and cinch everything up tight. I wouldn't hesitate to buy another one.

I bought a Adco cover the grey one.
Used it 1 winter.Left black marks and scuff marks .Have to get it buffed out now.
It was nice and snuggled too.
