Covers for winter

Hello everyone. I'm considering buying a cover for my camper this winter. Any suggestions or opinions? Camping world normally has some good sales on them. Are they worth it? Thanks in advance for the replies!

I think they are worth it. I have always covered mine. In my opinion, water is about the only thing that can kill a rv so I don't want snow and ice sitting on my roof. I spend the extra 40 bucks and buy the 2 year replacement warranty. I live where it's REALLY windy so I use it for 2 winters and then take it back for a free one because it usually has some rips in it. If its not horribly windy where you live I don't see why it wouldn't last 4 or 5 years.....maybe more. I think there are 6 straps that run under the rv to secure it, I have my mom sew on 6 more for a total of 12 It really helps keep the wind from getting under it.

Thanks Motocross, I'm certainly going to make that investment. I normally don't buy extended warranties but after ready about your, I just might. I'm in virginia so we get all seasons ( a little bit of everything when it comes to weather). Any particular brand you recommend?

I use the ADCO designer series. I love the DuPont roof material because even in freezing weather the snow and ice just needs a little sun and it slides right off on its own .

Awesome, that's the one I was looking to get. Any issues with mold or mildew?

Nope, no problems at all. The sides are made of material that can breath so moisture is not an issue.
