Any recommendations for a Good Cover for my A128S?

What would be a good cover for my A128s? Especially curious what size I should get.

Thanks,
Lewis

Check campingworld.com and search for ADCO covers. Select your camper type then use the size chart. They suggest you measure your unit, then choose the larger size, that is, if your unit is 12' long buy the 12-14' size, not the 10-12' size. That's what I did for my A128 (see below). Several others on this forum also bought ADCO covers for their A-frames.

I also bought an ADCO cover for my camper and have been happy with it and it does a good job of protecting the camper from the elements. I bought mine at where I bought the camper and did get it for $20.00 less than at campingworld but it is the same cover. Just be careful of sharp edges, cover will tear easily and punture.

Since you and backpacker3 both have the 128S you can use the same size cover. There are three straps and two ropes that come with it so however much extra covering material you end up with, it can all be cinched down well. I put padding on the corners of my unit before putting the cover on. Look for my posted photos of the padding, The thread is called "Getting ready to put the cover on".

We bought an Adco cover for our pop up last year and left it outside covered. We bought the breathable cover with water proof top layer. A single mild winter left it in bad shape. The breathable material ripped easily when wet. We were very unhappy. I hope your experience is better.

I have a Carver cover on my T10. It comes with two long straps and a reinforcement kit (as well as a storage bag). It is supposed to be breathable and waterproof.
It seems of good quality but this is my first year using it so the final report won't be out until spring arrives.
If it arrives...

Good to know about that. With the benefit of your experience I'll remember to be extra careful handling it when wet. Ours still looks good but midwest winter is only about half done. They have a warranty on the cover but I forgot to mail the registration card in time...

This is my second winter with my Adco cover and it is starting to show some wear. I have a few small tears that I have fixed, but it is performing as expected. I figure I will get two years out of the cover, which I think is OK for the cost. Wind, sun, snow, ice, and rain will take its toll on any fabric cover.

My sister gifted my trailer with an Adco cover. It fits nicely but not in use since the hardside is in the shop. DH liked it so much that he bought an Adco to cover his truck camper. It ripped (shredded) when he removed it while it was wet...big disappointment (uh...his words were a little different) he only had the cover less than 2 weeks! argh!

I'm looking for a cover for my Flagstaff T12RB. It measures ~ 13', not including the large bubble window which looks to stick up about 4 or 5 inches.The 13' includes the spare tire but not the propane tanks. (The propane tanks have their own cover.) I would like one that fits snugly, and has elastic around the bottom so the wind can't pick up the cover and blow it around. Also one that encases the entire camper, minus the tongue and propane tanks. Reinforced corners are a must as my camper top has very sharp corners. Snow and ice are not a concern but I would like it to be as waterproof as possible and sun resistant. Does any cover manufacturer make such a cover?
Thanks,
Jim
