Wink Travel Trailer Winter Cover

I purchased my first travel trailer about 1 month ago and would like to know what type of Winter Cover is recommended that won't damage the trailer over winter. I've been hearing all kinds of stuff from not covering to actually cover it but with all the different brands and makes of covers I wanted to know what's the best cover to use.

I don't want to have any worn edges from the cover rubbing or a warped roof from the tie downs.

Any suggestions on what I should purchase? My trailer is a 2008 Rockwood Roo 21RS.

Thanks for your time.

we purchased a cover last year after not covering the year before and it was the best thing we ever did...we purchased an adco cover from campingworld. it is breathable and we were very happy with its quality. we did however take the extra steps of padding any edges that we thought may be a problems,,including the ladder edges also if you have one.. Upon returning to our permanent site in the spring, we found the trailer to be in excellent shape with only a small tear that was easily repaired on an edge where we had missed padding..I am all for covering,,peace of mine for us...hope this helps..they had two different weather climates to choose from when purchasing our cover, depending on your climate...

Thanks for the reply. What type of padding did you use on your edges? I'm going to contact Camping World to get a quote on the cover.

you'll need to pad sharp areas with any brand of cover.

we got the ADCO cover for our Roo on Ebay. paid about $125 shipped. it had only been used 2-3 times and came with the bag, in its original box. no tears or cuts.

That's a really good deal considering they are over $200. I'll check out Ebay to see if I can find one. Thanks

we had some of those protective sheets that they use when shipping electronics,tvs, etc, they are thin but they did the trick, we duct taped then in place with great results, I am sure that you can use anything you have as long as it gives a barrier between the corners and the cover..Hope you are lucky enough to get a good price on ebay, we paid 260 for ours, but consider it to be well worth it... good luck

Yeah, between 250-300 seems to be the going rate. Thanks for the reply.

I just order an Expedition cover from National Discount Covers. It was $280 shipped. They also sell the Goldline cover which is supposed to be very good, but a little pricey. The one I order has a 3 year warranty, so hopefully it will last at least 2 1/2 years.

I checked out the Expedition Covers and they seem to be a good quality cover at a good price. Can't beat the non-prorated 3 year warranty either. I should be ordering mine in the next week or so.

I am pondering the cover question too. How tough are they to use on a TT? My 2010 Coachmen Catalina will sit out all winter. I have it parked on a gravel pad next to my 48 foot equipment shed (closed side carport) with some thick woods on the other side.
