RV Cover Recommendation

Looking for recommendations for a good RV cover. Storage space is hard to find up here in northern Wisconsin and quite pricy ($400-450/season).

My opinion, none. We have had pop-ups, travel trailers and 5th wheels since 1971 and never covered a single one. I have found that they tend to be a large pain in the arsh. You have to put them on. Take them off. They rip in the wind. Trap moisture. I just give the trailer a good cleaning and wax, winterize it and park it next to the garage. I do leave my vents open to let the tt breathe. Max-vent covers keep the elements out and assist in controlling that musty nasty smell that you get in an rv when it is closed up.

I like covers to keep all the junk off of them. We park campers here in the winter for long periods of time and I like having something over it to protect it from all the elements and stuff.

I had a v-nose Windjammer so I had to custom order my cover. I went with CalMark. 6 year warranty and loved it. A bit pricey but worth every penny in my humble opinion. If you inquire with them they will send you a pictorial and you fill in certain dimensions. Made to order and without a lot of extra material flapping in the wind. Going to look into one for my new fifth wheel.

I like the ADCO tyvek covers. they let things breathe but protect from RV. Amazon has some good prices. Mine fit like a glove on my Rockwood ultra lite 2304S

I was just looking myself. We just brought home our new Flagstaff 26FKWS. My previous trailer started experiencing regular roof issues after about 10 years and I'd like to avoid that. Or at least postpone it. My opinion, for $300-$400 it's worth a try. I'm thinking the ADCO myself. $314 at Campers World. Let me know what you decide. We can compare notes.

Ron, after reviewing numerous covers ranging from $200-$800, I purchased the ADCO 32841 Tyvek Designer Series cover from Amazon for $308 including free shipping. It didn't matter which cover, I reviewed, ALL manufacturers had complaints lodged about corners tearing or premature rips. The ADCO seemed to meet my expectations and for a good price. Only time will tell. Hopefully I get it by this weekend so I can put it on before the snow hits up here. I'll be sure to cover all of the corners or places that can rip and snug things up as to mitigate the risk of wind-flapping scrapes.

Regarding covers, I live in Northern Mi (tip of the mitt area.) I don't have an enclosed area to store the class C, so I'm wondering how many of you cover your RVs that remain out in the extreme weather. For those who leave it out, what kind of problems do you encounter after the winter season.

Thanks for the Amazon tip. I plan on camping right up to mid November (heated tanks yay!) but would like to cover it after that.

We had a class A and covered it in the winter in North Carolina. Now we have a TT again and plan on covering it up so the roof will last longer.
