storage cover recommendations?

I have a Rockwood 2304S and would like to get a storage cover for it when it's not being used. I see prices all over the ball park. Any recommendations or words of warning?

Boatnut, we are going into our 3rd winter with an ADCO cover for our 2304. Followed the directions on how to measure, bumper to front, not including tanks or jack. Have to be careful of your gutters and bottom of awning poles rubbing holes in cover. We cut pieces of swim noodles, works great. I now take spare tire and holder off so cover will fit nice and snug. I put a bucket over the power jack and use the storage bag for the cover to cover my propane bottles. Overall the cover has held up very well. I think I paid around $280.
Will try to send a couple of pics.

Bought cover at camping world. They were on sale and free shipping. Followed their directions on how to measure and then went to a chart which told me which cover to order. Just went out to the garage to look at the box the cover came in. Part# 32841 which is for TTs 20' 1" to 22'. I think if I would have gone one size bigger it would be flapping in the wind.

Hi,
Amazon has the same prices as Camping world but Amazon does NOT charge sales tax. I bought the Adco #32845 Designer Series RV Cover (28'7"-31'6") for my Coachman for #328.99 with free shipping. I received it in 5 days from time of order.
Nice cover and looks good too. Follow the measuring directions for a good fit.
Make sure to pad all edges.

Don't wanna be the fly in the ointment but: most Mfgs recommend no cover for many reasons. Mostly for moisture being trapped inside and the repetative abrasion caued by breeze and wind. Most prefer regular wash and waxing.

I guess I need to go physically measure mine. specs online says it's 23' 9". So the number you gave me for up to 22' will fit ok? Just wanna be sure before I pull the trigger.
thanks!

I would measure from bumper to front not including tanks. That cover fits my 2304 very well. I think that spec in the book includes the entire hitch. Someone also chimed in about moisture and abrasion issues. I have had no problems with either. The cover is well vented, I leave a window cracked open and my roof vent opened a bit. I checked this forum before buying cover and read opinions both ways. Good Luck!
