I'm looking for a cover for our 2014 Wildwood xlite. Adco has several different types of covers. Are the tyvek covers twice as good as the others? They are almost double the cost. I don't mind paying for quality but don't want to waste our money either.

If you get winds greater than 45 mph then you may want to reconsider. Here in Colorado, winds of 60+ are not uncommon so covers end up shredded and they, also, can do quite a bit of damage to the RV.

I am going to see if an A/C cover will survive the winter and, also, putting on awning covers, as well as the wheel covers and I have a little cover over my electric tongue jack.

You best bet would be to ask your dealer. (Mine doesn't even sell covers for the above reasons.)

Laura, I recently purchased the ADCO Designer Series cover for my TT. I chose this modelbased on the chart on ADCO's website. Up here in Wisconsin you need one that is extremely durable and designed for high sun exposure, high moisture, and snow. This one fit the bill. I was impressed with the DuPont Tyvek fabric as compared to other covers I have purchased in the past. Hands down this is the best I've seen for the money. I don't know about cost being doubled but I do know there are other manufacturers out there more expensive and less expensive. I chose to go in the middle and after reading some of the reviews in this forum. I don't care which cover you get, be sure to reinforce anything that can tear or rip a hole in the cover. As Colorado Rick stated above, winds can cause damage so you will want to snug things up and protect corners. Tip: I used those foam "noodles" kids use to float around in water to cover sharp corners to protect the cover. You can easily cut them to fit any corner or sharp object. Good luck in your endeavor to purchase a cover.

Just put on our new Adco tyvek cover on yesterday for the first time on our Coachmen Freedom Express 281 RLDS. It took maybe 35 minutes to figure it out and install. We were having 25 to 30 mph wind gusts while installing so I was a little nervous but was able to get it on with no problems. I put the tennis balls on the gutter ends to help eliminate the tearing. I have my trailer parked on our Michigan up north property which is located in the snow belt of our state so hopefully this will help with protecting the finish. I will do a post next spring to review the covers wear.

I had an Adco that lasted 2 seasons before tearing...did some research & got a Goldline and let me tell you the quality is not even comparable...looks like this thing could withstand just about anything. We had a nasty winter last yr & it shows no issues whatsoever.
